View Full Version : Undiscovered backlinks?
08-22-2006, 03:51 PM
Not sure why, but for some reason Google can't find any backlinks to my site while Yahoo, MSN, and a myriad of other link harvesting tools can find many. Any ideas would be very very very appreciated! The site is www.hydroponic-home-garden.com (http://www.hydroponic-home-garden.com). I am assuming that Google's inablility to find the backlinks is also affecting my page rank?
Thanks for your input!

The toolbar PR is worthless. I have a site that is a PR3 with one inbound link.
If you want to rank highly on the search engines you will need plenty of high quality links with your keywords in the anchor text.
I am seeing some evidence that relevant quality outbound links may help.
I have a new one page site that is three weeks old and is ranking #9 for a keyword showing 6,650,000 google results. The site has one half decent IBL and a few "average/poor" directory submissions. I believe that the out bound links helped on this one.
I am waiting for the sandbox to kick in on the next data refresh.
