Lennart Björneborn (http://www.db.dk/lb/) has found out that Webometric link analysis is still possible, using HotBot!
Here is his very valuable information...

Looks like HotBot (http://www.hotbot.com) gives inlink counts for whole
sites for search strings like:

linkdomain:www.db.dk and domain:uk

(with your home page as no 4 on the result list :-)
Somewhat confusingly, HotBot highlights search operators like 'and' and
'domain' in the result list ...)

Also possible to stem urls like:
linkdomain:db.dk and domain:ac.uk

HotBot uses the Inktomi database - owned by Yahoo (cf.
http://www.searchengineshowdown.com/features/inktomi/) - so let's see how
long they'll keep the advanced search operators ... :-(
