our website has content and over 1200 sites linked to us but when you run a google search only one shws up as linked in. Brutal .... Any ideas on why this happens? Thanks for help.

Welcome to the forums, tryid.

You may already realize this - the Google backlinks function only ever shows a small sample of what you actually have. Nevertheless, this is a pretty extreme case.

There's not much you can do as far as I know, and there's just no figuring which links Google will and won't show. You need to have faith that Google sees a lot more links than it will report and just get on with the show. The name of the game is getting on the search results and getting traffic. The rest of it (toolbar PR, backlinks and so on) is very indirect indicator of your site's "health" and not directly important, in my view,

What I don't understand is why one site
gets just one result on a search, yet another gets the
"more results from" tag? Does anyone have
any definitive answers to the "more results from"
tag? Our site once showed these tags, but after Florida
last year that changed and we never quite found out
the reason for such. When the "more reults from" tag
disappeared is the point in time we lost most of our Google
position and traffic. We have written G on many occasions
about such, without ever recieving a valid answer.
