    Hello fellow SEOs,

    this is my first post, i really like the Keywword Tracker and the Backlink Checker. With my site there is a problem that wasn't solved in teh FAQ nor in this forum, maybe someone can help?

    first of all, you did a wonderfull job, this ist a great tool you are
    offering!

    On google i cannot find any backlinks to my site with:
    link:peru-erlebnisreisen.de
    (http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=link%3Aperu-erlebnisreisen.de&meta=)
    only with:
    link: peru-erlebnisreisen.de (note the blank space!)
    http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=link%3A+peru-erlebnisreisen.de&meta=
    i get results.

    I tried eveerything to get the backlinks work on my account at digital point. but it simply shows backlinks=0 even if google tells me there are 1100

    Greetings from Peru,

    What's the URL exactly as you have it entered in the back link tracker?

    Hi digital Point

    I've tried different entries:

    peru-erlebnisreisen.de
    peru-erlebnisreisen.de
    www.peru-erlebnisreisen.de
    www.peru-erlebnisreisen.de

    it has never worked.

    Hope you can help.

    Thank you and greetings from Peru!

    I've tried it with "http://" and without.

    I've tried it with a blank space in front and without. I thinik I've tried everything.

    Iin google it shows me that we have 1100 backlinks while the backlink checker shows 0 for every option.

    Only if i enter: %3A peru-erlebnisreisen.de i get a result of 2 backlinks.

    I don't get it.

    greetings from peru,

    andre

    What's the URL of your search query in Google that shows you having links reported? When I try it, I get zero.

    You have a space in your query which is wrong. It's no different than searching Google for peru-erlebnisreisen.de link.

    That's exactly my point. The backlinks ar only found when i add the space before peru-erlebnisreisen.de

    But i cannot find out the backlinks with digitalpoint as i can't check the url with the space before startung the url. Has anyone a recomendation what i can do, so the Backlink Tracker will show me teh correct number of back links?

    It's only going to report what Google reports. Since Google is reporting 0 for your site, the back link tracker will as well.

    Those aren't back links Google is reporting to you. The link: function does not work with a space in it. All you are doing it a search for pages with the word link and your domain in the content.
