    Does anyone know why there is such a big discrepancy in link count between those two?
    Google shows that I have 230 -Top domains that have links to pages on my site ; yet Alexa shows only 43 links.

    For some reason my question to this thread disappeared, or at least I can't see it.
    Here's is my initial question:
    Does anyone know why there is such a big discrepancy in link count between those two?
    Google shows that I have 230 -Top domains that have links to pages on my site ; yet Alexa shows only 43 links.
    For example; checking my competition links - the same link that we both have , shows on my Google, but not Alexa, yet it appears on his count in Alexa. (links that are at least 6 mos. old)

    I feel like calling you an idiot but I will refrain myself and just say that those who are using the dark theme can't see it unless you change the color.

    The guy above was telling you to change the color of your text and not forum skin.

    Lastly don't play with colors on a multi skin forum.

    To answer your question OP: who cares? Here are the important questions: are you ranking? are you making money?

    Start worrying about the right things...

    That Link was awarded to him...

    Use the Black skin in alexa...

    Only write in yellow and green fonts. They are loved by all especially the color blind...

    THAT WAS HILARIOUS -- I want to make a small cartoon and tweet about how funny that was!!! LOL Thanks for the laugh
