There's loads and loads more inbound links recorded on AV and AllTheWeb, than on Google. I'm talking like 100,000 on AV and then only 100 on Google.
Now this info maybe correct, but I just want to check if anyone else has motcied such a big discrepency?
If this info is correct, then it seems strange that so many pages with inbound links would NOT be crawled by Google.
I checked a sample of the links that it listed and most were PR4 or above - there are a couple of PR3's.
I suggest that you are both correct. It shows a random number of links that is in direct proportion to your total number of inbound links.
(If it was purely random then why do some competitor sites have less links showing? Everyone would have a random selection of exactly 100 links for example) Or something like that anyway.
Though google has always showed less links than it says you have. This has got a lot better recently.
I know 300+ links of the 1,200 should have been counted as backlinks. In fact, these same links are counted as backlinks for my competitors. Any suggestions or information would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
