how did you check for the backlink? if you are entering in google, it is normal that not all of the backlinks are shown. Check your total backlinks in Google webmaster tool.

I've been building links in the same way you have - Forum signatures, social bookmarks, blog comments - and the links have started to show in Google and other search engines so they should work for you as well.
Is this a new campaign you've undertaken as they do take time to appear?

As far i know forum signatures, blog reviews where we keep link are considered as back link. Even directories submission.
So i have used at many forums, many directories paid and free, to many blogs i have made good comments and added links with anchor text ..

is not getting any back links.. i saw only 1 back link in google .. why this is so ??

can any 1 explain..

Google only display random sample of backlinks if you want to see more of your links check it on webmaster tools.

The technique is defiantly working good but not for high competition keywords where you needs ton of authority high PR links to hit the first page.

May i know how long you're involved with seo? coz i believe it always takes time to get backlinks. yes, forum signature is one way of getting fast backlinks but in directory, article submissions it always gets approval from the webmasters in order for you to get the backlinks.

I have just started doing seo for my new site site is just 1 month old.I get links from forums, blog postings, article writing, squidoo lens, hubs, directory submission and minor link exchanges. Now I got 600+ backlinks. My site also shows #6 in MSN on my keyword.Althoug it doesnt show yet in Google i know time will come for that.So I suggest that you just do your routine and follow what SEO gurus are suggesting to get popularity.Thats what I have been doing...following the guru's and the experienced ones coz they know how it works. Goodluck :D

Google is known to only show part of your total number of links. Try checking in Yahoo or MSN and see if it shows more.

Hi freeadnetwork,

Most of the forums will not give backlink until you've reached minimum posts in their forums. and forums also count that the replies that you are giving. and for directory submissions, most of the search engines does not count paid links as backlinks. that is the reason you are not seeing any backlinks for your site. anyways, try some other organic promotional techniques such as social bookmarking, commenting to the blogs to get quality back links.

One Way Signature Links

Postby Gabriel - SEO Consulting » Fri Feb 20, 2009 12:29 pm

Posting in a forum is a great way to get backlinks to you. But, you need to actually participate in the conversation and be relevant to it with what you ask and say.

How many times have you searched Google or Yahoo for an answer and found it in a Forum? Many probably like most of us. People search for basic SEO and SEM techniques all the time get answers to simple questions.

This makes the forum happy because you are now helping them generate traffic with user-generated content. As long as the content is good, so will your backlinks.

The Internet has a natural way of helping people who help others. Good luck!
