Hi. Someone asked me about this recently. Thought I make a post about it. I have a couple of domains with about 9000 links to each (Yahoo shows me). They were built over a 1,5 yrs time from all over the place (not just one IP). Google shows me that they only have about 3 inlinks each. Both domains are indexed and ranking for keywords in Google. Don't trust big G. Google don't want people to be able to check their backlinks and how many they got... You should be measuring after "Yahoo Site Explorer Tool" and use that figure as an estimate. Here's an example for sites that have been around for ages, and a proof that G don't show you the correct amount of links. keyword: "conferencing" Results for ...........Google ..... & ... Yahoo: link:intercall.com ... 262 links ...... 8390 links link:genesys.com .... 85 links ...... 5300 links link:webex.com ... 1200 links ... 438019 links Yahoo is not the one lying to you... For G; the closest thing for checking backlinks would be to use the "@"-sign in front of the URL you check. Then note it down, check again after a week or month, note it down. Then you can see if your domain has gained exposure in G. It's not exact, but it's the closest you get with G. (type this into the google search box) Example for checking domain: @yourURL.com Example for checking internal site: @yourURL.com/folder/site.html Hit the thank you button if you learned something Take care.
