Currently Traffic-Bug submits to 31 Social Bookmarking sites but this number grows and shrinks. Just recently many social bookmarking sites have closed. Some just down temporarily while they do maintenance while a few have closed for good.We are working on unlocking Digg and Stumble Upon and will have those added soon as well as an additional 14 more bookmarking sites online.
Why isn’t my back links showing up in a back link checker?
There are many factors to this.
1) Traffic-Bug’s back link counter only counts when a backlink submission is made….NOT when the back link is actually accepted. Directories that Traffic-Bug submits to are like most directories, they can take up to two months before a link is accepted into the directory. About 50% of back links can take up to two months, 20% in the first month, 10% nearly immediately, 10% may decline for various reasons and the last 10% may take longer than two months.
2) Backlink checker tools are not the most accurate. There are many backlink checking tools on the net and none of them are an exact science. We recommend you use Yahoo’s free back link checking service but even some of the bigger free tools out there just can’t give you an exact number. So some of your back links may not be showing but are there.
3) It can take search engines months to re-evaluate incoming links, so if you do a back link check today, there are likely links that are going into your site that haven’t yet been calculated in.
4) If your site is not indexed by Google then back links may not show up.
As you can see there are many factors that make this not an exact science. However if you are patient you will see them roll in over time.
There are many places on the net to read more about this if you simply do an internet search on the matter.
