Hello All, I've put a test site up for trying some of the techniques on this forum. I managed to get indexed by google very quickly by pinging some blogs and such. I've linked my site from several social bookmark sites. Googlebot, MSN and Yahoo bots show in my logs daily and are finding my site. The problem is when I try to see exactly how many back links I have, it shows that I have none. I use google and search for link:mydomain.com but I get nothing. Several other tools that track back links also show that I have none. I find this strange since obviously the spiders are finding me. The site has been listed in SERP for my test keywords for over a week now. Heck, I even got a few adsense clicks already and I have hardly started to promote the niche. Any explanations here White n' Black hats ?
