    Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I understand SEs only show dofollow links on their results. That's why only few links are returned when we use them to check a site's backlink.


    PS: No intention of hijacking the thread. Just want to learn more.

    Wrong: Yahoo showing dofollow and nofollow both links in site explorer... {not sure about google}

    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.

    Your best bet is to check the Google Webmaster Tools if you want to see all backlinks that Google knows about.

    Hmmm.
    yea i noticed same thing. I thought the website was credible and was going to be part of their linking campaign then i ran my own pagerank report and got the shocking truth.

    Whats even more SHOCKING is the WHOIS of the domain...check that out!

    Why cannot you login to your Google webmaster tools and check the backlink count ?

    You can see a major portion of indexed backlinks in your webmatertools account.

    yeah; surely you need to allow some time to gate links by link checkers until they are being crawled by search engines.

    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.
