    Link popularity

    Not long ago I started with link exchange for my Web site. When I check link popularity for my Web site, then in all SE's I find back incoming links accept Google & Hotbot!

    What is the reason that all SE's showing incoming links, but 0 links in Google & Hotbot after doing linkexchange?

    Thanks!

    Google doesn't show all the backlinks you have but it does take them into account.

    MSN is probably better to check what backlinks you have.

    Probably those pages have low rank. Google shows only links from pages that have high rank. But even if those pages have low rank google still takes it into account so don't worry about it.

    Not true actually.

    Google only displays backlinks for the specific page you request, not your entire website. That's what the other engines do and that is why they have higher backlink counts.

    Also, Google updates it (public) backlink count on a set time table, not regularly. So you may have to wait until the next backlink update to see how many you have.

    google updates backlinks monthly, randomly show a small percentage of all links. MSN updates backlinks more frequently.

    Also, do watch out for underhand webmaster traicks, such as link pages blocked with robots.txt, javscripted links, jump scripts, and no internal links to the page. It happens...
