Link Checking Thread - Google Backward Link Posts
Posted 03 February 2005 - 10:57 AM
The blog is fairly new, about 3 weeks old. I had submitted it to a few blog-related directories, which are the links that I find in G when searching on "family webwatch". I was excited yet surprised to see those links show up so soon, but confused with the link: results.

As we've been saying here for some time, you can pretty much disregard what the Google link: command shows. Even they admit that it will only show a selection of links pointing at your site, though nobody knows quite what criteria they use in determining what to show you and what doesn't get shown.
The bottom line is that they know about far more links to your site than they will tell you about. I use Yahoo! to check my backlinks because it seems to be the most reliable at the moment.
You can be pretty sure that any links Yahoo knows about, Google also knows about. Even if they won't tell you that they do with their link: command. If you want to be 100% sure pull up those pages linking to you in Google's cache. As long as the page, and the link pointing to your site, appears in Google's cache you can rest assured that they know about it.

I am also new here and although I have read the newbie section I don't know all of the protocols here. If I do something wrong please let me know so I can correct it.
It appears that Google is not including links in their "backward links" from websites that they include in their database. For example, when I do a search on Google for “tmi salt pure” (my new client's site, so SEO's please don't contact them or send them solicitation emails) it shows results including sites that have links to my client’s site including:
<edited links - not needed>
However, when I check for links to my client’s site on Google “link:http://www.domain.com” it shows six links but does not include any of the sites that have links that showed up when I did a search for “tsi salt pure”.
My concern is there are great links to my client’s site (that have been there for years) that are not being “counted” by Google which lowers the pagerank, which lowers my client’s ranking. I don’t believe that pagerank is the “be all and end all” but it does influence rankings.
My question is, what can I do to get these valuable links included in my Google link list. In addition, I have been snubbed by website owners who say that there are not enough links to my client’s site for them to add a link from their site.

Just because a link doesn't show in Google, that doesn't mean it "isn't counted".
Webmasters who refuse to link to your site simply on the basis of it not having enough inbound links according to Google's link: command are -- shall we say? -- "shortsighted" and not very aware. I lump them in the same group who won't link to a site that shows a PR of less than 4.

I have 36 bonafide backlinks most with a PR of 4 or better. My PR is 0/10. I am a brand new site probably in the sandbox.
Is this all normal?

Although, if you want to check your backlinks, best use msn link:domain.com or yahoo linkdomain:domain.com , as they will show you more data.

link:t-shirtsusa.com/ I get no results
If I search for the phrase "t-shirtsUSA.com" I get 27 pages with the phrase that link to my site.
One of those pages is my own site and contains the phrase
"Deep discounted T-shirt screen printing"
If I search for that phrase on google it returns no results.
It seems to be that although google has indexed the pages it is not returning correct results.
Does someone have an explanation

The link: command at Google has been broken for a long time now, as you'll discover when you read through some of the older posts on the forums. They show random backlinks with no rhyme or reason.
I use Yahoo! instead for that. (ie linkdomain:yoursite.com to get all links pointing to your site.)

A simple question, hopefully with a simple answer.
I have many links to my site but Google does not register these links at all - Why is this and is there something I can do to fix this?
Thanks very much.
