    I searched about this on the forum but I'm still not sure if this is the way to check if my backlink is indexed by Google.

    Website A links to me on 5th December. My backlink will be indexed when I see the following message?

    This is Google's cache of websitethatlinkstome. It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on 05 Dec 2011 00:00:00 GMT.

    Another question. If I get a backlink on an older page that wasn't indexed for a while what service do you recommend I should use in order to get my backlink indexed faster?

    Thank you!

    Check out:
    Code:
    ahrefs.com
    If a link is picked up, it tells you when it was indexed.

    Realign02 - Isn't there a traditional way to check if a backlink was picked up or not? Without using any software?

    Basically if google bot crawled the page where the backlink is located means that it already counts or am I wrong?

    Google doesn't show 1/10 of the links it picked up. I would assume that's the case, but you never know.

    You really don't get the question, do you? Instead of beeing so smart why don't you answer my question?

    Once again: My backlink counts after G crawls the page where the backlink is on. How do I know when the page was crawled - if the backlink is shown on cache?
