Hi all. My site is brand new and has finally been indexed by google this latest update. My question is, I have several dozen sites that are PR4 or higher linking to my site, but when I check link:www.myurl.com it shows me as having no backlinks. Is this normal for a newly indexed site? Thanks!
There are several potential reasons why no backlinks show up in your case:
You didn't tell the PR of your homepage, but you wrote it is a new site. So my guess is, your current PR is to low (see point 1) because a lot of those links were added after G spidered the pages linking to you (see point 3). If you look at the cache of the page linking to you, and it doesn't show this link, you will know this link is not yet processed. But even if the link can be seen in the cache, it could be that older data was used for the monthly update.
