I have a weird situation with a redesigned site. Both the site owner and I have been working on getting backlinks to it for several months. As far as I know, all inlinks are to the domain name rather than deep-linked. The 8 year old domain was redirected to the new version of the site about a month ago. Yahoo Site Explorer shows 59,472 inlinks. Though GWT has indexed over 1300 pages on the site out of around 3000 pages, shows a big fat 0 backlinks.

I've used the exact same approach to getting inlinks on other sites without any problems in GWT. Any idea why GWT would be slow to pick up on backlinks?

It takes many months before Google will decide to merge the domains and count the backlinks from the old one to the new one.
