Yahoo Site Explorer Live: New Way To See All Your Pages, Links

Promised over a month ago,
Yahoo Site Explorer
is now reality. Yahoo gives the heads-up to everyone
here on its Yahoo
Search Blog, and how it will show you all pages within a domain, within a
particular directory of a domain, all inbound links to a domain and the ability
to bulk submit (which
was already live earlier and explained more in our earlier post). You can also
access through a new
Site Explorer API
or export data for further analysis. More details also on
the help
page
.

If you’re a Search Engine Watch
member, I do a
through exploration of Site Explorer in this

article
in the members area. Check it out! Or hey, help support the site and
the blog by becoming
an SEW member! Below, a summary of my wish list items and observations from that

members’ article
:

  • You can see all pages from all domains, one domain, or a directory/section
    within a domain
  • You can NOT  pattern match to find all URLs from a domain,
    unfortunately
  • You can see all links to a specific page or a domain
  • You can NOT exclude your own links, very unfortunately
  • You can export data, but only the first 50 items, unfortunately
  • Search commands such as link: aren’t supported, and I hope that might come
  • You can get a feed of your top pages, but I want a feed of backlinks to
    inform me of new ones that are found. Site owners deserve just as much fun as
    blog owners in knowing about new links to them.
