Inward links different from Fast and Google

 2:52 pm on Jun 14, 2002 (gmt 0)

Hi all,

I've been keeping track of my incoming links over the past four months as i've been doing some linking work each week.

Would anyone have any idea why Fast is listing a lot more links than google? Google has listed the same result (38 links) for the past 3 months while Fast has consistently increased, from 14 initially to 85 now. It may have something to do with how they each count links from within the site, but FAST is picking up on the work I've been doing, whereas google is not.

Any ideas out there?

Charliek, as a matter of fact FAST ios much better for checking on inbound links.

This does not neccessarily mean Google doesn't know about all your links, but it does not display them.

Google is believed to show only links with some PR to it.

So for checking inbound links in Google you have to work a little harder, searching for all pages including your domain name.
