    Confused on links to your site section in Google webmaster


    I submitted my website to just two directories and when i checked Google webmaster tool --> links to your site section it shows those two directories with links as 130 and 110. I'm confused here is those links the number of times someone clicked on my site through those directories or number of times google bot crawled? I thought directory links are one way links but how come 130 and 110 link from two directories. I'm really confused here...if someone can explain it'd be of great help for me

    That is odd. I've never seen that happen before.

    That is number of links to your site though.

    Maybe the directory put your link on a global page? Do they maybe have a "latest entries" area that appears on all pages of the site?

    Just throwin some ideas out there.

    • vincentind agrees : Yes, the directory had recently added sites box in every page, maybe i got those 100s of links from those

    Within Webmasters did you click deeper to reveal the source of the URLs? It should show you the individual pages that have linked to your site.

    The high number of backlinks could be that the directories had your site as a sitewide 'new listing' for a short period, or your keyword tags are being picked up and showing your site in different areas of the site. There's plenty of reasons.
