I’ve got a couple of questions re backlinks – when they start to show up and their quality. Hoping someone on the forum can help.
I’ve been building some backlinks to my poker site, but some – notably the link from my Twitter feed homepage, Facebook fan page, and Google profile page – aren’t showing up. They’ve been up for about 2 months now. Other backlinks I’ve created are starting to show up, but they’re taking between 30-60 days for Google to index. Does that sound right?
Second question: if I build a backlink from Site A to my site, and use the anchor text ‘poker’, then I go back to the same page on Site A and create another link with the anchor text ‘online poker’, which one does Google see/score? (Don’t worry about the text examples, I realise I’ll never score with them, they’re just examples). And if I build the ‘poker’ link on Site A back to my site, and then go to a different page on Site A and build the ‘online poker’ link, will Google score them both? I thought Google only scored one backlink from Site A to my site (and possibly one link from Site A’s server to my site), but a friend is telling me otherwise.
Any advise/comments/assistance much appreciated.
Where are you looking for your backlinks? Have you tried looking via Yahoo site explorer. Google don’t show all backlinks to sites, in fact they only show a handfull.
On your second question. In my experience google will value all links to your site, but not necessarily equally.
you might have other links, which is good, but google doesn’t think they are as important
You should also have a couple of variation for link text to your site – it is good to have poker, online poker, online poker sites etc.
