Lightbulb How many backlinks does your site have?

Hello Friends,
I just found out that my site has PR 1 with total backlinks - 4249. I know its quite poor performance.. I hardly get time to update it nowadays.. but I am trying to figure out a new seo method.. so I kinda need genuine backlink data.

Can you comment the genuine number of total backlinks your site has?

**Total Backlinks can be found in Google Webmaster Tools -> Your Site on the Web -> Links to your site

My site has 1000 backlinks it is almost 5 years old, most of the backlinks were gained naturally. I just added few backlinks at the begining. Top 10 on most of its keywords. It was PR5 but dropped to 4 on november. Nevertheless, traffic never dropped it stays and still with 800-1000 visitors per day. The perfect sample of how SEO should be done.

Impressive! How you managed to get a PR 5 with just 1000 backlinks.. I guess each of those backlinks must be above PR2

Yes most of those backlinks are above PR3. It has a backlink from DMOZ, another from Yahoo directory and many more that got by it self. It is an infomative site.

You could have backlinks, one of our sites have over 13 thousand, and I like to point out the importance of getting links from different domains, because you could have 2 thousand links from a single domain, and then you could have 2 thousand links from 2 thousands different domains.
So as per your question, when you say you have less time to update your website (don't we all at times?) and before you start figuring new seo methods like you are seeking, perhaps you can take a new look at your online strategy, because, if you have over 4 thousand backlinks already, then you are probably getting some visitors to your website. Now, the question should be asked as to, why am I not accomplishing my online mission, since getting more and more visitors may not be of benefit if the website is not performing well and if not converting well. You can look at professional web copy-writing services (or at least look in to it yourself)
I know you have asked us how many back-links we all have, I could tell you that, even 1 thousand back-links (from unique domains) could be all that is needed.

Also, what should be strongly considered is, unique visitors, and the duration of visitors, since getting million visitors who only stay for 5 seconds won't help anyone. Once again, analysis of your logs can tremendously improve your strategy.

I believe that one of the best ways of getting back-links from different domains is through writing highly unique, informative, enjoyable, easy to digest, useful articles (and submitting them to major article dirs) This way soon you will have content hungry webmasters who will be doing some of your link building for you.

So you suggest that it is better to have links from prominent domains rather than just "domains" right? Are you indicating at Link Specialty?

Yes, prominent domains would be domains that are in your chosen field, these weigh heavy since the content is relevant to own (this is the first step we take) instead of getting links from web directories etc. And I like to stress out the point that "prominent" has many factors within it, example: how popular is the site? how many links they link out to (who do they link out to), how active is it, what is on it, how much content, do the visitors find those websites (we are linked to) useful?

Best advise once again, is to get your writing skills in tip top condition and start creating enjoyable articles and let them out in the wild. As getting backlinks from authority websites requires you first make effort creating strong online presence, as we all know back-link requests that start with "Hello webmaster, I was browsing your website and want to congratulate you on what a great website you have"

I mean C'mon, thus, your back-link efforts needs thorough plan, and once again, it is the useful content you provide to the internet citizens (be it info seekers, or, webmasters who are seeking useful fresh content) will allow you to create back links from different ip addresses

My website has about 1300 backlinks collectively from websites, blogs and forums. And my PR is 3 at the moment. I think there are some backlinks that are not good.

I have 3,205,056 which means nothing. The question should be "how much daily/monthly traffic does your site receive?" This is important.

My site has about 150 backlinks and I am no 11 in Google for some of the hardest keywords in the pet accessory industry. People say Link Wheels are dead - they are not, my friend. Use that stategy. Here in the UK, "Dog Clothes UK" is a very sought after keyword hit. You will find Pawpoint at no 11 and we are just about to release the third link wheel this week. Page 1 here we come!

"dog clothes UK"? Either that isn't a highly competitive keyword phrase, or people in the UK have some big issues.

But Google is in favor of 3 way link exchange

So modify the link sources(if possible)

I would agree that the specific number of incoming links doesn't really matter other than the quality and relevance of those links and how much targetted traffic they drive.

I don't think this method works that if your competitor, ranks at #1 with 5000 backlinks you somehow get 5001 backlinks and Google replaces his website with yours

So keep working on how your site is being linked. Anchor Texts, OBLs, and several other factors are to be kept in mind.

As of today my site is PR4 and according to Google Webmaster Tools I have 11,968 backlinks.

The website I am describing is over 2 1/2 years old; I am quite content with the results.

Much Thanks,

BiologyWebmaster

There is no system that can give you all the backlinks a site has. They use data from different sources to compile a list of backlinks but those sources (such as Google) blocks a certain % from others finding out exactly how many backlinks a site has.

You can use many different places and all of them will give you a different number of backlinks.

Can you comment the genuine number of total backlinks your site has?

**Total Backlinks can be found in Google Webmaster Tools -> Your Site on the Web -> Links to your site
