    hello, i made this blogger blog a few weeks ago but i havent touched it since. it has no content whatsoever. but when i look at the site on my google webmasters panel it seems to have "1,176 total links to my site"!? can someone explain this to me. they seem to be mostly coming from an "OPML Network" scrolling widget at the bottom of other blogspot/blogsome blogs. how and why are they displaying a link to my blog.

    ... but the real question is will all of these links help me in search results if i were to ever put content on my site. will the links give me authority in the serps??

    thanks for any input.

    It is good if you have such amount of backlinks without any effort. If you publish content on your blog then it definitely help your blog.

    Lol I'm sort of on your boat. I post 300-500 word articles daily, yet i do no backlinking work. I somehow have 10,000 backlinks and I was like "wtf"?

    Oh well I can't complain :p

    Might be a widget that blogger users have put on their blogs to randomly link to other blogs? This is what it sounds like to me.

    Or maybe someone is trying to blast your blog to oblivion.

    well I think it's like twitter and facebook etc, when you post things on those sites even youtube it will get you backlinks because so many ppl scrape those sites for content. So ppl are scraping blogger for content and you are showing up on their sites.

    I know with twitter my tweets get retweeted, scraped etc, I have autoblog that autotweets and it happens all the time

    And then I read this and that proves it. So many ppl are scraping your stuff outright and putting it up with links on their site. Peace.

    hey I found this site here it is an excellent example of what im talking about.

    http://boardreader.com/thread/cladg_ghosting_today_in_apartments_fg54X4quq.html

    I was searching for some cladg information and this came up in google.

    this site is pure scraped content. So imagin how many other sites do this. this is why you get so many backlinks from blogger or wordpress blogs becuase they are scraped. Peace.
