Hi, My website shows only 70+ backlinks in Google. But I've submitted my site over 500+ directories & search engines and the site have its presence over there. i) Why did they all are not showing in google backlinks, although you can see them by this search query -> mydomain.com -site:mydomain.com ii) Google is not only showing the sites which are having PR 3+ but also displaying those sites which have below PR 3 or even PR 0, in the backlinks from my site. That means google is not longer is taken consideration of the PR in the backlinks. Then, what is the critaria to be appear in backlinks?
I have a site that is PR3 and has back links from 4 sites that are PR3 or less and they all show in google. The site has been online for 3 years. So I assume that it is grandfathered. Otherwise my other sites that are below PR4 show nothing in google at all for backlinks. Yahoo is a the best source that I have found for backlink checks.
