Pardon the long post... but allow me to vent
Looking for an answer about checking backlinks
How can I find out what backlinks a hub or web page has?
I have 'Googled' backlink checkers - tried 4 or 5
I have SEOBook Firefox add-on - tried it
I have read most hubs I could find about backlinks
I have followed forum threads about backlinks
I have done Google and Yahoo "link:http web url thingie
I have Googled question: "How do I check backlinks" - surfed
till I got frustrated
results for a Hub that I have:
book marked on 8 sites like snipsly, reddit, xomba, etc.
linked to from 3 of my blogs
linked to from 3 of my web sites
linked to from twitter, facebook, myspace
linked to from about 4 other of my related hubs
linked to from 3 Squidoo lens
linked to from 2 eZine articles
linked 2 from 2 AC articles
linked to from 1 eHow article
As far as I know, all the above are do-follow links
so that's approx. 30 backlinks
even discounting bookmarks that should be at least 18 or 19 findable backlinks
hub is in list of "related hubs" sidebar on approx. 90 other
and the results of this effort ...
wait! wait, I forgot to mention, the above efforts are weeks, (some, months) old, I mean I wasn't expecting a 5 minute turn-around
Ok - drum roll ... tada!
results from the above efforts to check backlinks:
Google link: web url = 3 backlinks,
2 from bookmarks,
1 RSS feed
Yahoo link:http web url = 96 backlinks,
92 from the hubpages "related hubs" sidebar thingie
2 from Alexa search results
2 from bookmarks
yada... yada... yada...
All other efforts yielded similar strange results, i.e.
only a few links from 3 - 5 different sources depending on which backlink checker I was using
ps.. some of the links I placed were from sites as high as a PR8, but most were PR4 and up
So now that I vented all that, I guess the real question is: "Am I just too dense to be allowed a "keyboard Operator's License", or is there really a way to find a page's backlinks and it's a fraternity secret that I'm not allowed to know?
I mean Geez! if I place a do-follow backlink on a PR6-8 site, (even if it is a bookmark like reddit), shouldn't it show up somewhere?
where the hell are my backlinks!
It's a bummer to spend hours, yes you know the accumulated 5 to 10 minutes at each site does add up to hours, and then wait a few days, (or more), and then never seem to get any page benefit from the effort.
Come on you veterans and SEO gurus - teach me the secret handshake.

Is backlinking one of those annoying yet necessary tasks to improve traffic? Which is more effective for backlinking? Excerptz or Squidoo?
