    I've been looking over my google webmaster page and noticed that it lists all your backlinks. I found no links from Facebook which is disappointing because my content has been shared by quite a few people. Does Facebook not count as a backlink?

    Facebook-shares are part of so-called 'social signals'... social signals also have an impact on ranking.
