Sometimes when searching for something in Google, after clicking a result's cache, some keywords are said to "only appear in links pointing to this page". I was wondering how to find out these "links"?

For example, I searched "recognizer, parser, automaton" in Google, and clicked on the following cache of a hit: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:cTSqyh405EkJ:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automata_theory+recognizer,+parser,+automaton&CD=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=Ubuntu&source=www.Google.com

It says

These search terms are highlighted: automaton These terms only appear in links pointing to this page: recognizer parser

You can find all pages that link to your site by searching for:

link:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automata_theory

However it is not possible to search within that pages and it does not show all back links but that's as close as you can get with Google. Yahoo Site Explorer gives you more backlinks but does not let you search them either.
