LinkAssistant doesn't find any backlinks to my pages.

If you run a search for existing backlinks to your pages and don't get any results, it can mean one of the following:

  • Your backlinks have not been indexed by our crawlers yet. Here in LinkAssistant we have developed our own database of backlinks which is being updated in real time: thousands of web-robots are constantly scanning the Internet pages and indexing billion of links on everyday basis. Yet it still may take up to a month for scan the whole Internet, so if you placed your links not so long ago (just a few weeks ago) it is possible that your links have not been found by our web-robots yet. You just need to wait and with time they will be found and added to our database.
  • Your backlinks are restricted from indexing. Line any other web-robots our crawlers must obey robots.txt rules. So, if some web-master decided to close his website for our crawlers - we will not be able to find your backlinks. So, make sure that the resources where you publish your links are allowed for indexing.
  • Your backlinks are located on orphan pages. Your backlink page may be open for indexing, yet may have no incoming links from any other page - such pages are difficult even for Google bots, so there is a very high chance that it will not be found by LinkAssistant bots either. Make sure, that your backlink page have at list one incoming links from other internal or external pages. 

In some cases backlinks may not be added into the project due to some project-specific factors. Try to check the following:

  • Revise the Excluded Prospects list: open Preferences -> Prospect Management -> Excluded Prospects and make sure you have not added there some important websites by mistake.
  • The backlinks may be already present in your project. You might have already added your backlinks into the project, so when searching for new results the software compares the list of your project backlinks with the list of backlinks in our database, and if there are no differences found then LinkAssistant will report that no backlinks have been found.
