Default Backlink Issues!

Hello all,
I am here to clear my confusion related to backlinks to my website. Actually when I checked backlinks to my website through link: website name with www I found only one backlink from drupal website. The same thing when I check through webmaster tool for my website it shows baclinks from many good PR directories and other social media sites. The same thing I find in Google analytics, when I check the referral traffic it shows visits through directories and social media websites where I did submissions.

My question is that why I am not getting the backlinks through link: websitename with www, the same which I am getting in webmaster tool and Google analytics. Whats the reason behind this? Even the PR for those directories and social media websites is very good actually not less that PR 7.
Please help me in this issue. Thanks

You are trying to compare apples to oranges. The backlinks you get from search for backlinks to your site or from your page rank - just do not matter - what matters is traffic.

It could just be that google has not gotten around to linking those to your site or it won't as the sites are not good site or that the backlinks are similar to the link you have.

Regardless forget about the backlinks (not getting them but where they show up) and spend your time driving traffic - as traffic is what really matters.

There is a member on here (SEOTools) that has a website that really helped me to focus better on traffic and not all that other stuff that just does not matter. Their site might help you out as well.

I use to focus on my backlink listing (I would check them several times a day using the google tool bar) - but, it really did nothing for me - all I did was waste my time focusing on that and not my traffic or in satisfying my clients.

What I am trying to say is the traffic matters - not if google is listing all your backlinks.

One example of a reason this can occur is that google delays the updating of the backlinks search results. So when you do a backlink search it could be based on data from 3 months ago versus today. Another reason that is common is that google only shows a portion of the backlinks for any search like that. Typically, the yahoo linkdomain: query is used to research backlinks this way versus google since google historically has ony shown a sample of the backlinks within the results. Those are the two most common reasons.
