I have left about 20 backlinks on other forums, blogs, etc... and submitted one article with backlinks. All were relevant links related to my industry. I checked to make sure that the URL links work (they do), but when I checked backlinkwatch.co m nothing has been reported. I also checked alexa.com and still no change in backlinks. Same deal with google. How long does it take for these links to show up?
I know that the links work because I have received some traffic from the backlinks. Also, my business facebook account is not showing up as a backlink.
I have been thinking about using companies to build my backlinks, but I only want relevant links. Any recommendations?
