    backward links or sites who link back.


    Ok, does google go on the total number of backwards link to your site or how many sites link back... I'll clarify this a little.

    Being a little slow I only came across Alexa a little while back. I look at how many backwards links I have on Google & it says 1,040 I look at how many sites link back to me on Alexa and it says 54.

    Which is it that mean the most to google?

    Backwards links.... or... sites who link back?

    Is really is the same thing, with the exception that "backlinks" could mean many from the same site (including your own).

    In the greater scheme of thing though I would hedge the bet at "unique links" from sites on different server (or IP different octual blocks).

    Normally this means "totally out of your control".
