    Can someone explain me a thing?

    When I am getting more than 1000 backlinks for my website from Yahoo, why am I not getting any backlink from Google. Am I mistaking something?

    My site is also ranking in google its on the third page for 4-5 keywords, without any Google backlinks.....

    My question is:- Does the google backlinks show? Or There are no Google Backlinks on my site and still it is ranking on google?

    I used link:example.com to check Google Backlinks.

    Use www.majesticseo.com and make an account and login your site. Then you will see all of your backlinks. Google doesn't show backlinks using that footprint, or maybe it will just show 1% from it. My site has around 1000 backlinks in majestic seo and in Google with that footprint only 2!

    Used it and saw just two domains linking to my website, Used the Google Webmasters too that just showed me one domain of my own linking to my website.

    Is it possible to rank without Google Backlinks?

    There is no such thing as google backlinks or yahoo backlinks - there are only backlinks :). Just because google doesn't show your links doesn't mean they don't know about them.

    You cannot get backlinks from search engines... As far as Yahoo! backlinks are concerned, you might be getting them from Yahoo! services like Yahoo! answer etc.

    Thats really interesting as most of the people are really mistaken and just think that google backlinks and yahoo backlinks are different ones.

    google wont show you all/any backlinks for awhile, but they see them, and the serps improvement is just proof of that.

    I said that the links that are showing are not the link that are indexed by the Google Crawler. I am only being able to see the links that are being crawled or indexed by the Yahoo Crawler.

    What the hell in this world made you think that I am talking about 1000+ backlinks from Yahoo Search Engine?????

    link:domain searches dont return full results for any engine.

    To check if a link is indexed, do a site search for the actual link url.

    Eg, you left a profile link on blahblah.com/users/johnny-be-good37.html

    search:
    site:blahblah.com/users/johnny-be-good37.html

    If it shows a result, google knows about the link.

    Even if the link isnt indexed, does not mean google does not know about it.

    What the heck is Google Backlink? If you get 10 of those then you're pretty number 1 in google search engine. LOL!

    He's talking about how many of his backlinks are being indexed by google. :rolleyes:

    @OP, the best answer is the one Gimmemoney posted. Even if Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. are only indexing some of your backlinks that doesn't mean the other ones aren't being counted for your sites ranking.

    As the spiders crawl the web and come across your backlinks they'll be following those to your site and crediting those for indexing your site in the SERPs. Ideally you'd like to see them indexing those backlinks as well, but even if they don't there's still going to be some amount of link juice passed to your site.

    Yahoo and google use its own method to calculate backlinks, so it is possible both have different backlinks and ranking.

    Google doesn't necessarily show all of the backlinks thy have found pointing to your site. Just keep building them and watch the rankings.

    You're after the results afterall. I really don't worry too much about how many backlinks G shows as long as I get the rankings.
