    Hi guys,

    Although I am doing SEO for 4,5 years, I have not idea how is Google considering indexing backlinks.

    Let's say I created a squidoo lens especially for my site. I search that url and it is indexed in Google. Now, when I check my backlinks with yahoo site explorer, it is not there.

    How long does it takes? Any idea?

    Thank you!

    Different tools provide you with different results! Now if it is indexed in Google then I guess you need not worry.

    I am always getting different results when I look up my back links with different tools.

    Wasting your time worrying about it. In the time it took you to check those tools you could have built more backlinks. They never show you everything so why bother?
