    I have been experimenting with tier link building as of late, but I have noticed that none of the tier 1 web2.0s I create pointing to my money site show up on ahrefs when I search the backlinks of my money site, is that normal?

    try with different backlink searching tool like majectic, traffic travis and others. It is normal that, not all links will show. But, you will see few of them over the time. Check if all are indexed first.

    Web 2.0 links need a bit of age and authority before they start showing up in ahrefs. You'll notice them popping up after a few months. I didn't see any of my web 2.0s till they had around 6-7 posts on them.

    I'm not sure how ahrefs judges them though but this is just what I've noticed.

    Just Google the url and if it shows up it's been counted, for example Google http://www.yourkeywordhere.wordpress.com/ and if you see the site in the SERPS it's counted towards your T1.

    Ahrefs has less backlinks for me than Majestic/Webmaster tools.

    For this one site I hand made about 12-15 web2.0s in mid March and still none are showing on ahrefs or Majestic, and these pages are indexed in Google?

    ahrefs is not what decides which website ranks, and I've heard they are not as reliable.

    If your t1 linsk are indexed in google, they are counted, if not , google doesn't know they exist - no real value there.

    Well if the web2.0s just need to be indexed to count then I'm ok I guess I think I counted 17 web2.0s I made and 14 were indexed.

    I just remember another site I built tiers for back in January, I scanned that site on all these backlink checkers and still NONE of the web2.0 t1s are being found (but they are indexed on Google). But all 3 keywords I aimed to rank for on this money site are in the top 5 on Google, 2 are actually number 1 in Google. So I guess who cares, but why would none of these web2.0s get found on backlink checkers? I mean this has been the case for all I have created, that just seems a bit odd not just even 1 found yet?

    Yeah that is what Iv done, and many show different backlinks. But the constant on all the backlink checkers is that NONE show the t1 web2.0s, that is really what I cant figure out.

    For Tier I's just make sure they are indexed in google... that's all that counts. aHrefs is a waste of money. Sorry. Use SEO Spyglass that you can find cracked here to look up competition backlinks. Use Scrapebox to show which of yours have been indexed (Tier I only, leave everything else alone to be naturally found over time). That's all you really need to know.
