The Google search's links: command allows one to retrieve a set of known backlinks to a domain.

Unfortunately, when using this command with a subdomain (for example against myblog.blogspot.com) the set of returned links do not always point to the subdomain.

The Google link operator was link:, not links:, so that may have been the problem.

Regardless, the link: operator became depreciated in early 2017, so you shouldn't use it.

Google does allow you to view a sample of links to your site here:
