Sorry if this is covered elsewhere - I can't find it. I'm trying to build link popularity, and so I'm looking at similar sites and finding THEIR incoming links, to get some ideas.
I'm using Google's "link:<sitename>" feature.
Many of these sites show links within their own sites in that list - which is large. My own site, which is a big one - shows NONE of these "internal links" - even though the navigation system links every single page back to the index and a varitety of other pages.
So my questions are:
1. Why don't mu internal links show up? Is it because they're not fully qualified, absolute URLs?
2. Are these internal link, recognised in Google, worth anything in terms of link popularity?
