Hey guys,

I have acquired 30 links to 2 of my websites (15 each) by commenting on relevant blogs. 2 weeks after my incoming links campaign ended, I checked google webmaster tools and I found out that only 3 out of the 30 links are in there. Also according to siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com I have only 7 links pointing to my 2 websites. All the blogs I have posted my comments on have the dofollow plugin enabled (I even checked the page source to make sure.).

Is there any reasons why google (and yahoo for that matter) discredited 80% of my incoming links?

Thanks,
Nick

Yes, because as we've talked about in many other current discussions here, no tool will show you all your links.

Just get 'em and forget 'em.

Also, even those that do show up in the tools may not count towards your link popularity. Especially low quality links such as blog comments and forum sigs. Most of those are just spam to Google.

What's the deal with directories, btw?

Are links from directories considered..basically spam / not counting, too?

Or do links from directories with carefully selected links count somewhat? (think a local vegan directory with different categories and only a few links per category). Am in a situation like this right now...wondering if its completely worthless to go after them or simply not extraordinarily good ;-)

Who knows??
Some may be incredibly "valuable" most will not be

Again who knows? BUT in terms of traffic (which is the only thing to consider) it may well be used as a point of reference for people in your marketplace.

For "link value" It's not WHAT the page is, neither is it WHERE the page is. It is do other pages LINK to the page to give it any "value" to pass on.

So if a directory has countless other websites linking to it....a link from that directory will pass on link juice the same way as if it was any other non-directory site?

I assume we agree that the number of links on the page counts,too(?)

But other than that are there no "directories just cant pass on much link juice" rules in the SE's algo?:-)...as those are simply much easier to get than most other links (except for blog comments and forum links for which the same thing probably applies)?

Do you really think the notion that directories dont pass on nearly as much link juice as other websites is flawed/garbage? Just asking, as it'd make me happy, but somehow I doubt it (though I could believe that it depends on how many links the directory contains, and that carefully selected directory links might help)..?

Yes, it's flawed. Every page is judged on it's own merits based on it's own history, link profile, authority, trustworthiness, etc.

I'm sure there are many directories or pages within them that no longer pass any link juice. But there are just as likely to be many that do.
