[Tutorial] Finding your competitors backlinks
#11
Is this tutorial still valid? I can't even get past step 1. It runs for about 15 seconds then says, "Harvester completed. Harvested speed was about 0 url's/s."

For those asking if this method still works, the answer is sort of.

The link: search operator has always been buggy. You aren't going to get all of the backlinks to the site by using it anyway.

Also, I've found that if you just use the link:competingsite.com as the footprint you'll only get a few dozen urls returned.

However, if you use the following, you should be able to get up to the 1000 links the url harvester will allow.

link:competingsite.com -competingsite.com

The above search type has worked well for me. Hope this helps some of the people having issues with the link: search operator.
