Google shows very few of your BL's..
Try Yahoo, AltaVista, AllTheWeb, MSN Search and HotBot for a complete list of all backlnks..

Thnx 4 the response - so is there anyway of knowing all the backlinks that Google knows about?
No. They don't want us to know.

I have only been doing seo for less than 2 years, but as far as I know google has never really showed all backlinks. in the past they used to only show MOSTLY the high power links with a few low power ones mixed in. now they just show some of the low power ones with extremely few high powered ones mixed in.

If you do a search on just the domain name you can find the pages where the URL appears - with and without being linked. Not as helpful as it would be if they showed the links, but at least you'll know about those pages.

Reggy73: Try the link and linkdomain commmand on Yahoo. This gives you a better picture of your links.

Having a space character after Link: often gets lots more.Dave Hawley: Hey great tip. Sould I use that one on my clients when they complaining about not having enough links.
4:00am and Bob dozes off into funny land and dreams a dream.....
Bob: "Say here client just put a space in and see how many links you done did got now!"
Client: "Woa man, how you do that."
Bob: "Well I done did learned that one over dar at the LerchEngineBotch."
Client: "Wait a sec dude, that is just doing a normal search and pulling up all occurrences of my domain."
Bob: "Hun, how about that eh, but look at the numbers, don't you feel better."
Client: "Hey look at this when you remove link: you get even more."
Bob: "Woa man, how you do that."
Client: "And check this out, see what happens when you take the www. off."
Bob: "Wild, keep going you pretty near got dat link command done did fixed."
Client: "Hey look at this when I take the extention off, man I have links now."
Bob: "Great, great we have fixed the link command. I will go and post it over dar at da LerchEngineBotch and I will be flameus."
Bob bangs his head against the monitor and wakes up....

LOL! I was wondering who would take it as serious (wasn't excepting to get a bite so quick though). I guess you just have to spell some things out to certain types.
It was S A R C A S M for those that insist the Link command should show more links.

Dave Hawley: Ya my post look really serious doesn't it. But I will admit that I though you were being serious. But thats a reflection on the level of your other posts ;)

Ya my post look really serious doesn't it Perhaps that's a "reflection on the level of your other posts" :D
Right now it looks to me like the msn beta search is finding links better than anyone else.
