Hi,

I have been Googling some of the key terms I plan to target.  However, I have been shocked by the results of Google's link: feature.  Some of the merchants who rank well on the key terms I plan to target only have 2 backlinks.

I have also been using a PR checking website which claims that some of the sites have only 2 or 3 PageRank.

As far as I'm aware PageRank only plays a small element of where a site ranks but I'm shocked to see how some sites according to Google only have 2 backlinks.

 

One merchant is one that I have sold products for so I am very suprised that Google suggests it only has 2 backlinks.  I checked another site which is very popular and is owned by a well known internet entrepenuer here the in the UK and Google shows that it has hundres of backlinks.

Google's link operator tells you so little that there's simply no point in using it. If you want to check a site's backlinks, use a tool like Majestic or ahrefs.
