    number of backlinks in alexa


    Hi

    alexa says i have 30 backlinks.. but my site's backlinks are more than that..
    for example in the list there are not backlinks from social medias and some other backlinks that i know they are out there. why alexa doesn't include all the backlinks?

    Probably the same as with Google: not all backlinks count, and most of them they just don't show.

    But why are you concerned with stuff that Alexa says about your website?

    Why do you think it should ?
    The web is huge, and a lot of social links you need to be a member to access, Plus also no follow links such as social links do not help in your SEO efforts, they may bring traffic and give you some exposure but that all.

    when i check the backlinks, it shows as much as alexa says.
    isn't alexa a good source? if it isn't, what is?
    what are the good tools to check an analyse backlinks?

    There is not one that's 100% reliable, to gather most backlinks you need a vast array of tools, ahref, moz, sem rush, google search console to name a few. Combined it gets you most but most are paid for options so you really need to be doing this for a living to get the value from them. or you could contact a agency for a backlink profile who will have the tools.

    When you look at your site you are just viewing the web as a tiny island but there are trillions of web pages out there and any 1 could contain a link to you, to crawl all these plus the millions of new pages being created every day requires immense crawling power and bandwidth, only really the likes of google have access to this type of bandwidth so they should be your first port of call.

    In all honesty most SEO professionals dont rate Alexa or take it seriously as it relies on their tool bar being installed on users web browser to do the crawling for them. So its just a small sample of users browsing activity.
