A user would like functionality in search similar to Google's link: prefix. They would like to find 'all documents that link to a given url.' The environment uses FAST, so any SharePoint or FAST search syntax should work, but I'm having trouble finding the exact syntax for this.

What do you mean by link to? The document contains a link to x, or the document is in the folder/structure x? – Sam Sussman Sep 12 '12 at 20:20
The document contains a link to x. So, "all pages or documents that contain a link to somesite/somepage";. The crawler has to maintain this info to be able to crawl, so it stands to reason it's available somehow... – Daniel Sep 13 '12 at 13:55
