    I build some backlinks (web 2.0 tier1) for my new websites since end of april and yesterday I checked them on Google Webmaster tools. I check out "links to my site" and I found that there is no single link to my website, but there should be about 20 backlinks pointing to my money site.

    How long does it take to show up? Is it updating only once per month or what?

    Takes forever and they're heavily filtered, they show you a completely fake link landscape. That tool is not meant to help webmaster, it's meant to keep webmasters inside google's sandbox.

    Exactly what the guy above said, they don't show any worthwhile link data in WMT. It's more like the low quality crappy links, and often links that don't even exist anymore.

    You will want to use something like Ahrefs to check links.

    They don't really show the accurate data. I have blasted tons of links and only saw a couple thousands on GWT.

    Google Webmaster tools show only small part and not follow any clear standard, sometimes garbage links show up, when link from the web 2.0 page with unique content is not displayed. Many links you build will never show here.
