    Google Webmaster not showing all links


    Hi,

    I have recently been looking at my Google Webmaster reports for internal link structure and have a quick question.

    There are around five key pages in my site and I have pretty much linked about 80% of my sites pages to these five pages. Problem is Google Webmaster report dont show these links...it's not to do with caching as the site has recently been updated.

    Any ideas? Is Google just not recognising these links as they are pretty much site wide?

    Any help would really be appreciated here.

    Thanks in advance.

    If the website has gone live in the recent past, then I wouldn't really get worried about Google not showing all links in the webmasters tools area as at times it takes time to display all the links and the website size does play an important role into it.

    A couple of questions that you can answer;

    a. How big is the website?
    b. When did it went live?

    Try submitting a sitemap in GWT.

    You most important pages need to be linked to by the index page.

    Also check site:www.yourdomain.com to see if your pages are indexed.

    The site has around 90 pages, and went live in August. I als have an XML sitemap which I have submitted.

    It's just weird that some relatively unimportant pages are ranking.

    There shouldnt be any issue with me linking to my important pages from a lot of pges in my site should there?

    If they are important try and get some good back links, that will get them back in the SERPS. Again, your important pages need to be linked to by your index or home page. It is also possible that you could be cross linking extremely heavily, but that depends if you have really gone on a mad one doing it. Oh, and by the way, you do have to really go on a mad one to cross link too heavily.

    LOL - no i havent gone absolutely crazy. The links I have are logical, I ws just concerned these have been discredited from Google. If I drop you a PM would you mind taking a look at my site, would be good to get someone elses opinion on the site.

    1. What do you mean by GWT not showing your links? You mean your pages are not shown as indexed?

    Try to see if they are cached.

    2. Also check your robots.txt to see if something is blocking Google Bot to index those pages (if they are indeed not indexed).
