I recently migrated my company Intranet from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online.
I want to make sure that we do not have any lingering links with URLs pointing to the old domain.

How do I search for just a specific URL like: http://oldintranetdomain* to locate any links to the old site?

This should be easy, but today I'm having a meltdown and being a bit thick.

In SharePoint, content is automatically crawled based on a defined crawl schedule. It is possible if the link is in a document or on a page, as the link will be treated as text strings while searching.

Reference: Make sure content can be found
