Eytan Seidman of Live Search has announced that the link command operator was recently offline due to “mass automated usage for data mining.” He goes on to say that:

So for now, we have made the tough call to block all queries with these operators.

The move has received flak from webmasters. When Google and Yahoo! can handle such queries, what makes Live so handicapped? However, Eytan Seidman hinted that Live Search is working on “a few good ides up our sleeve” to offer better functionality for such queries.

Barry Schwartz has stated that this might be the indications that Microsoft is launching a webmaster tools section similar to Google’s Webmaster Central. Is there a upside to this seeming handicap of Live Search?
