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?

Thanks in Advance for your kind words.

First - submitting to 500+ isn't the same as included in 500+.

Second - PR4 and above page links show

Third - Google only shows a sampling of backlink above PR4 and not all... but this does does mean they are not included.

I wouldn't concern yourself with the "number of"... as the volume isn't as good as the quality.

--Second - PR4 and above page links show--

This is wrong! Google has been showing PRO and a lot of links under PR 4 since the last 2 or 3 backlink updates. In fact, for many people the high PR backlinks are not showing.

You can not count on what Google is showing for backlinks. Get your backlink count from Yahoo.

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.

Yeah, the part about Google showing only a sample of backlinks is true. The PR4 restriction no longer applies.

What would be the search-term to check with Yahoo for the backlinks?

Looking at the number of backlinks or even taking it as metric doesn't lead very far.

Google's display is randomized at best, and if yahoo shows a backlinks it doesn't mean anything for google.

It's still PR4 my friends! The fact that Google has not updated PR in 90 odd days (since June 22nd) but has updated backlinks 3 times (I believe) - they are all PR4! ;)

Any wagers? - Sorry I'm right! ;)

So What is up at the Googleplex

1. PR 90+ days old
2. Backlinks - Random at best
3. Major change in the results? Can't remember
4. Googleguy - not posted for about a month

So all those DMOZ clones must be PR4 or above. Hmmmm...I don't think so.

They are using all their math skills to work out rise and fall of options and how to exercise so they can retire ;)

Does some kind of quiet period still apply?

Dirkz, I heard someone mention in another thread that there is still a quiet period in effect. There weren't any details about how long it lasts though.

I'm not familiar with IPOs from a law point of view, but Google is so silent it's staggering. Not even a PR update.
