    Hi,

    Hope someone can help. I just got listed on google last month. I know backwards links are important, so I exchanged links with some people.(before the update) Not alot maybe 15 - 20 but none are listed in google. Anyone know why this might be happening?
    Thanks
    Tammie

    Hiya,

    It could be that their pages are very new, they're "active" pages that don't get indexed, or they're dropped from the index for some reason.

    It can take up to 8 weeks to get a page in the directory, so they might come in at the next update. However, what you REALLY want is to get some inbounds from higher PageRanked sites... get the Google toolbar if you haven't got it already.

    in my experience, google's backward links are not very accurate...

    try alltheweb.com to see who's really linking to you...

    But, at the end what Google has counts...

    Google loves it when your link is displayed on a webpage with a PR of 4 or more. That's when they count it as a link pointing to you.

    Yeah I have to agree on the accuracy.. it's all over the place normally in terms of ups and downs.
