I recently did an inbound link analysis on my site and found only a few links from within my own site.

I have cross link to many pages on every page of my site. Every site has a link to the home page.

It also doesn't turn up any pages when I do:

link:mydowmain.com

only a few when I try:

link:www.mydomain.com

Is there something wrong? Is this hurting my rankings.

Not positive what your getting at but lack of inbound links could be due to the type of link you have i.e. JAva script, flash?

Presume the other part of this question link:www.mysite.com etc..

Is with regards to google (as you have posted in the google section)

Links from site with a PR of less than 4 will not show up.

Hope I've helped :)

that helps, yes, since most of my sub pages are below 4 pr.

But not all of my pages above pr 4 show up using link:www.mydomain.com. And the don't show up at all for link:mydomain.com.

I don't use flash or javascript or dhtml. They are dynamically generate on the server through php. I use absolute link paths for my most important links (if that even does anything but slow it down slightly).

I'm just wondering if I'm doing something to hurt my position.

If you just added the links they won't show as backlinks on Google (assuming they are PR4+) until after the next dance.

These links have been there from day one. My site has been listed in Google for the past year.

>>>It also doesn't turn up any pages when I do:

I wouldn't worry about that at all. I don't show any links using that format either.

>>>and found only a few links from within my own site

Make sure the pages that you think should be showing(pr4 or higher) are actually indexed themselves. If you are using links with query strings(?id=value&page=anothervalue), it is possible they are not indexed. Sometimes google won't crawl those pages.

They are all indexed, but I guess it looks like it's not that big a deal based on the feedback.

Thanks.

How could I know how many my site pages be indexed?

link:mydowmain.com

only a few when I try:

link:www.mydomain.com

That's because http.//mydomain and http.//www.mydomain.com are not the same thing. www. is treated as a unique subdirectory the same way http.//sub.mydomain.com would be.

Is there something wrong? Is this hurting my rankings.

I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Google is generally pretty good about linking the two and combining PR, but on occasion you'll find different PRs for a site with or without the www.

This is why it's important to make sure that all of your internal links and wherever possible, all of your inbound links from other sites, are using the same linking convention.

Whichever you choose, just be consistent with it.
