obtain incoming links of a URL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I was having some trouble to find a way that I could obtain the incoming links giving a certian URL. Let's say for example I want to obtain the links that point to http.//www.contoso.com, but looking in the SDK and setting the parameters(like changing the SourceType) exposed in the SearchRequest I'm not able to obtain any page that has a link pointing to the URL.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

  • Thanks Roopali,

    Would this capability be available at some point in the API?
