While this is the correct response, the tool is pretty useless/inaccurate/broken IMO.  

A better way is to "search for your site, excluding your site"

paste this into google:  .yoursite. -site:yoursite.com

replacing yoursite with your domain name.  This looks for the text of your domain from all sites NOT in your domain.

for me, the link: tool returns 64 results, where as this method returns almost 14,000.  Big difference.
