    Is it just me or does everyone else's anchor text backlinks NOT get picked up?

    when I check my article backlinks that have anchortext with www.domain.com in google i get 0 results

    yet when I paste the article url into www.google.com it shows it as being indexed

    if they are backlinks how come google doesn't recognize the fact that its connected to my main site?

    it's just weird... when I use my url google 100% picks up the backlink.. yet with anchor text i never get any backlinks... im guessing this is just how anchor text works? .. you get the serp benefit... you get the url backlink yet it doesn't show up somehow?

    google search engine is known to be slow at showing backlinks that exist

    log onto webmaster tools if you want a better idea of what google's seeing

    Or yahoo site explorer is commonly used to show what backlinks are recognized

    There's nothing wrong, just give it some time. The updates on those things are not automatic. Patience young grasshopper!!

    For those of you who use scrapebox... do you use the anchor text to get backlinks or do you include your website in the actual message...

    if you use the anchor text backlinks how do you check for the backlinks?
