Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I am getting different results like 60 ,115,123,178 etc for the same search .But I dont see more than 9 links from the SERPS. Could you explain me what is happening. Is that something I need to worry?.
Thanks in advance...
You have not got a space between the link: and the http or www have you.
If so that will change the search from a link check to a check for pages which have the word link and your domain in the document.
I checked my search with google by running
with no space (I am sure I did not give any space).Still I am getting the same kind of results like 59,122,115,177 etc.. . I am not even changing the search query at all.
When I try the linkdomain on yahoo . I see 251 link counts. It is consistent.
DO you know when the google next link update will start .
You can check with 'link:' command on MSN, and then chec Google cache of pages you've found, if there are backlinks to you in cached version. It will indicate that Google either already treats it as backlink or will do it very soon (after updating its links database, calculating real PR and anchor text point etc).
If MSN/Yahoo don't know about a backlink, and Google refuses to list it, it's more difficult to detect it. But mind that if linking page is not known to MSN and Yahoo, it's not especially valuable page. Also if you cannot see such page in your logs as referer, so no humans go to your site by this link, it's a bit less valuable link - Google tries as hard as they can to depreciate links not easily seen and not likely clicked by humans, anyway.
