It is a treat to watch that when you observe the backlinks in different search engines like google, yahoo, alltheweb, altavista, you observe that different search engines showing different search results.

I have observed that google shows least number of backlinks (checked generelly and also from the google web master tool)amongst others. I think that the reason is google only shows trusted and properly indexed links whereas other search engines show all kind of links the site is interrelated with.

Google might not show the nofollow links the site is associated with and it doesn't count the nofollow as a link, whereas other search engines count them and show then on their search results.

So, you experts what's your openion? If anybody have different point of view, please let me know.

Google has for many years intentionally not shown full backlink data to the public.

Google, Yahoo & Bing have different crawlers which visit different pages and evaluate those urls in different ways. That is why the search engines will have slightly different backlink profiles for the same website.

I am going to investigate the backlinks of my enemies on bing, because I may learn more than if I just used google.

The links shown have never been an indicator of what Google is using to rank a site. Some links shown in a backlink count are not counted for ranking. As goodroi mentioned, the backlinks shown have always been a sample. As with other searches, do not rely too much on backlink searches to derive meaning for SEO purposes.

Enemies?

Dude, I'm on a first name basis with most of my competitors. They're not enemies, they're collaborators.

Nicely said, Wheel. Cooperation, not competition, is the new paradigm shift for businesses moving forward in my opinion as well.
