Apparently my backlinks aren't showing up on ahrefs or serpbook. I made a few backlinks at different sites to try out the whole backlinking process. So this is what I think it's like: Guest Blog Posting 1. Write article about something mostly unrelated to my niche but make a small part of the article about my niche and put the my link there. 2. I put one link directing to my home page there is no anchor text for this one so its like " check out (URL)", another link with an anchor text related to my keyword directing to an internal page. The other few links will be directed to random sites like wiki, something related to my article. 3.Ping the article URL using bulkping. So that's an example of what i did with one of my backlinks. Did I do anything wrong? I read that social bookmarks help index it faster. My main problem is that it doesn't show up as a backlink for my money site. The problem is the same for my tier 1 web 2.0's. Isn't 1 web 2.0 site considered a backlink? When i type in "sitemysite)" it shows up on google.
