    At If I type in, for example, the web-site I will get a list of other sites. 17 to be exact. Now I type in Link: I am then given a list of only 3 sites. However, from the list of 17 I see that they have links to

    Why the 2 different lists when the bigger list is also backlinks?

    Are they not backlinks? Do I have my terminology mixed up?

    When you do the query, Google only reports links to you from pages that are above a certain Page Rank, believed to be about PR4. Google knows about "smaller" links as long as it has spidered the pages they're on, it just doesn't always report them.

    For a more complete look at your backlinks, try the link: query at AllTheWeb. It will show a lot of links that Google doesn't.
