Why wordpress, tumblr, blogspot, etc (web 2.0's) not counting as backlink?

    (!) Over a month ago I started doing link building to my money site by creating web 2.0's, these specific web 2.0's that I created haven't been counted as a backlink for some reason and I do not understand why.

    I create 10 web 2.0's, only one has been counted as a backlink which was a yolasite.com, but wordpress.com , tumblr.com, squidoo.com, blogspot.com, webs.com and weebly.com none of them have been counted as a backlink, as I said it's been over a month now.

    These web 2.0's have:

    1. - been indexed by google
    2. - included at least 3 different posts with video and images
    3. - one of the posts has a link to my page I am wanting to rank/promote and 500+ words, HIGH QUALITY.
    4. - social signals
    I am not understanding what the issue truly is here, I have checked and they're all indexed by google (10 web 2.0's).

    Any clarification on the matter would be extremely helpful, thank you for those who has taken the time to look at this question.

    What makes you think they aren't counted as a backlink?

    Well I have checked with opensiteexplorer, yahoo site explorer(or whatever it's called), ahrefs.com, majesticseo.com.

    For majesticseo.com the results are: 1 backlink from yolasite.com(web 2.0)
    For ahrefs.com the results are: No results for specified domain/URL in Ahrefs index.
    And the other two the same results.

    3rd party link crawlers are slow when it comes to backlinks that aren't placed on pre-existing pages, G picks them up faster, dont worry.

    I see, it has been over a month now I didn't expect it to take so long. Even though they are not showing as backlink. Must they be shown as a backlink for the SERP to have any ranking effect?

    As long as your web 2.0s has been indexed by google they're being counted as a backlink by google and that's all that matters.

    There is never any guarantee that any of those backlink crawlers will show those 10 web 2.0 pages because they have a limited size capacity (Moz currently have 90 billion URLs in their index) whereas the true size of the web and Google's index is far far higher. But if the pages are indexed within Google then your backlinks should count for something. How much they count for is another question.

    Because the truth is: these pages are a burden on the cyber world. That's how google sees it. Build links to them and they will think "hey these pages are important, let's crawl them more often"...

    Links can be either external, or internal. Think of it as a tip :)

    They are counted as backlinks, 3rd party tools are slow and often not accurate...

    If you have webmaster tools connected to the website then they will show up there.

    Yep check webmaster tools. There you can see if these are counted or not. Also have you built any back-links to those web 2s you have made ?

    As soon as they are indexed by the Big G, they ARE counted as backlinks.

    I never leave links to be there just to wait google to index them, if they are lucky to get found. Whenever I put some content, I take that link and post it on twitter, if article is with image or more photos I post them to pinterest, and to google plus, and after that I ping all of those links on PingTrace.Com (even image links from twitter and pinterest) and I do additional indexing with GSA Indexer, full indexing profile. Yes it is slower process but I don't have any link unindexed and confirmed on google and ahrefs, and I am publishing just a article or two a day so its ok to do it with 100 % full attention to details.

    Those third parties are unable to pickup those backlinks. They do only pick them up when blogs are hosted on own domains. When blogs are hosted on wordpress subdomains, ahrefs is unable to see them. I complained about this one year ago and they said the flaw will be fixed, but they never did. That's why I cancelled my subscription with them.
