Sample Referring Link Query on Top 3

I started doing an analysis on referring links in the top three internet search services-Google, Yahoo, and MSN. For my alma mater (www.dartmouth.edu), the scores were:

Google - 5,990
Yahoo - 372,000
MSN - 57,790

I was spinning my wheels a little bit because I got the search syntax wrong for all three initially. After some quick investigation I found the right syntax. For everyone's reference they are:

Google - "link:www.name.com"
Yahoo - "link:http://www.name.com"
MSN - "link:www.name.com"

I am well on my way to analysing the top 100 as ranked by Alexa.com. I will post the results are they come up.
