I'm quite new to this so i don't know if i'm missing something obvious but - i run a couple of school sites that I KNOW have links to each other but when i do the link:mysite.com one site doesn't have any thing linking to it and the other has 1 link but its not from the first site.

Hope that is somewhat clear.

Am i missing something really obvious about writing links

be shure to use conform html link (a-tag) and then let some time pass. google won't display all links every page has to one page at first. it will take some time for indexing first of these pages.

and even if, not all of these links will be displayed by google. i don't know why, but this seems to be normal practise.

Bear in mind also that Google does not list all backlinks, only those with a reasonable pagerank (IIRC, PR4 and above). If your sites have low pagerank, they won't show up.

Ah well that probably explains it then...

you can try doing link checks on other search engines. alltheweb.com is a nice alternative to google for that.

Try inurl: as well, as that seems to give a lot of results; but includes your own pages as well as external pages with links to you.
