Like others have said, it can takes months before backlinks show up.
Google only shows a random sampling of relatively good quality backlinks.
Yahoo provides the best backlink list. It does include nofollow links. Most backlink checking tools use Yahoo data.
Most directory links never show up as backlinks.

I think its a depends on moderator.
well allow me to add some experience of mine. I usually use two web sites that are offering the services to show the total number of back links that a web site has but interestingly not for a single day i have found the same results that they show me. I am surprised that at the same time i am given the two different results of the back links that my web site has and i always confused to whom i should consider the true one. I have come to the result that there may be a few sites are present in the net who shows the exact results of the back links and most of the sites do not.
you are use the reciprocal link monitor and you get the original result of your back links it is very good site you try this.
