Reminder: Google Link Operator Is No Longer Supported
Just in case you missed the news from a year and a half ago, the Google link operator is dead . This was officially confirmed back in January 2017 that Google no longer supports this search operator, i.e. [link:www.domain.com] is dead. Gary Illyes from Google had to respond with the news on Twitter: It's not broken. It's completely removed and we don't support it anymore — Gary "鯨理" Illyes (@methode) July 30, 2018 John Mueller from Google also responded: would probably tell you not to use the link operator in search.
