    So I’ve been commenting on blogs and posting on Reddit to make backlinks but backlinkwatch is saying I don’t have any backlinks? My google search console is saying I have 13 external links (not sure if this is how you check backlinks on google search console) but I know I’ve made more.

    I saw a post earlier about linking backlinks? Do I have to do this or does google do this automatically? Should I just wait until my backlinks index? If so, how long does it usually take?

    Thanks!!

    You can use instant indexer for better and earlier fetch of your backlinks

    Don't force indexing, let it happen the natural way.

    Let google find the links naturally. If you are going to use an indexer, always go for a paid one

    Do you know of any paid one which actually works? A report would be even nicer but if the backlinks get indexed, it would be enough. By the way, I am talking about backlinks that do not have good content ( profile links etc).

    I have used an indexer named “Index Inject”. You can find it in the BHW marketplace. Good tool.

    It depends on the quality of the page/website, and it can take anywhere between a couple hours to a couple weeks.

    Social bookmarking surely helps! Also let the backlinks be indexed naturally by Google. Ensure the quality of the sites for building backlinks it matters. Choosing the right one will get you good results

    Google will automatically index your backlinks in the specific time. If you want to index it quick, show google that your article is best, by building backlinks from diversified platforms.

    Backlinkwatch will not show all the links that have been indexed. What important is whether Google has indexed your link or not.
