    So I added a great portion of unique articles to a reregistered tumblr blog (PR4, solid backlinks) and linked to my moneysite. The site got indexed pretty fast.

    Now, 2 weeks later, the backlink is still not showing up in ahrefs or any other tool.. but showing on google.

    Why is it taking so long? Has it to do with tumblr? Because I've done alot of backlinking before and its never taken this long time.

    The better question is why do you want it to show up in Ahrefs? If it's indexed in Google who really cares if some third party backlink checker has picked up on it or not?

    The answer is because Ahrefs has shittier web crawlers than Google. Backlink checking tools are for domain research, I frankly don't see how they'd help you much for sites that you already own.

    I just think it's wierd that such a backlink doesnt show up, even after 2 weeks.. while shitty backlinks like forum profiles usually shows up within a few days
