    Hey,

    so recently I thought I'd order a linkwheel for one of my site.. but when I did a little research I discovered that my sites has 0 links in Google?

    When I search for "mysite.com" in google I get 20k results.

    but

    when I search for
    "link:mysite.com"

    I get only 1 result in Google, but in Yahoo I get 334.
    This probably indicates that my site has received a penalty, right?

    Is it still worth ordering that linkwheel??

    G is never going to show all your backlinks. the yahoo backlinks or backlinkwatch is more accurate to check your backlinks.

    Also, link wheels are good but order a custom one after reading on the forum about the effectiveness of linkwheels. it will be better if you build a hub and build a linkwheel around it and then backlink the hell out of it.

    Thanks for replying.
    I have 2 backlinks showing with backlinwatch.. still kind of odd that only 2 backlinks for a 9 month website with over 20k results in google for domain name search. :-/

    You haven't been penalized. Google doesn't show all your backlinks. Being penalized by google is losing your rankings, or even worse - being completely removed from their index.
