Well I have done a ton of profile backlinks and blog commenting recently. To get these indexed I made several RSS feeds (with 50 or so links in each feed) using html2rss, submitted the feeds using RSS Submit, then pinged the RSS feeds, and finally bookmarked them on several social sites. So from reading other posts here using a similar technique these backlinks should get indexed within a few days at best. Now since it was mentioned that we should not rely on yahoo explorer or other backlink software to show these links right away how do you guys know for sure these links have been indexed? Do you guys check in Google by doing a "site:url of the profile link or blog post" to see if anything comes up in G? From checking other competitors and the backlinks they have built (that show up in yahoo explorer for their site) I do similar building of backlinks to the same sites, but mine don't seem to show up even after a few weeks in yahoo explorer. What could be the issue?
