I know there is a search that you can do in Google for links pointing to your site (link:url) but when I do that I find 2 strange things.
1. Sites are pointing to me that I never knew about (great!)
2. Sites that I know are pointing to me do not show up as doing such (not so great)
I spent a whole lot of time getting those "high quality relevant links" we hear so much about yet according to my search, Google is not seeing that any of these sites point to me.
I've checked on the links and they're there, nice friendly text links... so what's the deal?
Any thoughts on why this is happening? Any other ways I might be able to see if Google is recognizing these links (or get them to do it!)? Any help is appreciated, and thanks!
