    My site is over 2 months old now and has had backlinks showing up in Ahrefs for quite a while. Any idea why it just always says theres no data?

    Webmaser tools is 100% unreliable. They only show a small subet of links and at times don't show links at all.

    I have a site with over 20k links in Ahrefs and Webmaster Tools doesn't show any. Don't waste your time on the links in there.

    There's definitely a lag in WMT. Just build your links with proper anchor text ratios, try to get them indexed, and don't worry about it.

    Same deal here... I have only maybe 10% of my sites in WMT, and of those, exactly ZERO show an accurate record of backlinks...

    In fact, Webmaster tools is a bit behind, it doesn't show all the links immediately.
    As your site is rather young, I assume you got those links recently and just need to wait for them to show up in your Webmaster Tools.

    Alternatively, you may check your site links with different backlink tools - some of them, e.g. Ahrefs, Majestic and
    our http://webmeup.com/tools/backlinks.htmlhave their own backlink indexes and will help you in monitoring your site backlinks.
