No backlinks From Google
Google Backlinks

Hi, hope someone can shed some light on this for me. I have been asked by a friend to help promote their web site. I did a check on google and they had no back links, ok so I did a search in google for the site name and found about 300 sites that link to it. The site went through a rebuild recently and it was promoted at some point by an SEM company. I put a link from the site I currently work for and this also failed to show up. Can anyone help

Cheers

Dougie

If the back links have a PR less than 4 they won't show up as backlinks. If this is the case you should be aware that having a lot of backlinks which have low or no PR's can have quite a negative affect on your own PR.

As for the backlinks and PR crawl there hasn't been one of those in weeks which could well be another good reason.

Simon.

I don't see how having links from low PR sites can do harm? can you explain this please

Hi, my own site that I used as a test has a PR7 ranking. This at least should show up.

We didnt see PR and backlink update for a quite a long time, I feel you should wait and see how it worksout after the update

I agree with that. Hopefully, we will see the backlinks update in the next few weeks. It has been many weeks since the last BL update.

GG was joking around in another thread last night about it happening once per quarter. Might have just been a joke, but the way things are looking it might also be the truth.

If G does increase the time between Link/PR updates surely that will result in the searches being that little bit more out of date.

I have been waiting for an update but also feel it might be a good idea to stop looking and get on with some real work.

Low pr / banned backlinks do no harm! I am sure GoogleGuy could confirm this.

Otherwise it would be a trivial matter of signing up your competitors websites in any number of linking scams.. I doubt there is even a law against it.

Going back a bit the link I put up as a test was in January,and that links page was last visted on 11th March. the site I work for gets a robot every couple of days, so I would have a least expected to see that one when I queried the back links.. or am I being a bit over optimistic.

The links that were already pointing to my friends site there may have been been there for years.

low PR links will not harm your site! as for links from a banned site so long as you don't reciprocate the link your fine

I have 70+ sites that have been linking to me for several years but since the last few rounds of major updates Florida... etc all but 6 of them are no longer listed in Google as linking to me. (I did not change my site during the updates)

Most are over 5PR

My ranking has moved back up to pre Florida position (#1 for two words) when Google showed I had over 70+ sites linking to me. Now of course Google only see's 6 sites linking to me!

Seems like I want to say links have become less important, but then I see a company with 24,000 back links using a template page getting to the top of the list.

They update PR and backlinks internally on a very different schedule to what is made available publically. It is possible that the stir in the SERPS last weekend was due to an internal update in PR and backlinks...
