I have a couple of domains that have just showed up in Google within the last month or two. These sites do have backward links pointing at them. When I checked to see how many backward links Google knows about I get zero backward links found? How long does it normally take for a new site to start to show backward links? Thanks

You can try to find them by simply searching for your domain name at Google but do not inlude the "www." or the ".com"

I`ve tried that but it still isn`t showing the links pointing to my domain? Any other suggestions?

From what I read here there is a lower limit on how how the PR of the page of an incoming link for it to show up. PR3?

You must have PR4 or better to see incoming links.
Not only that, but the functionality of this feature is neutered and you will only see about half of your incoming links which are PR4 and above. I've never seen google display an incoming link with a PR of less than 4 unless it's from DMOZ.

But doesn't google still tell you how many links it found even if none rate as worthy of showing you? You often see things like 'google showing links 1 too 14 of 66' or did I just dream it?

google doesn't show all the results when it thinks that the other results are very similiar to those already listed ... "In order to show you the most relevant results, we have omitted some entries very similar to the ..."
it is true that even those omitted results have at least PR4; do you think that links from pages with PR<4 have NO influence to link popularity?
