Analyzing Google's backlinks is close to worthless

Because of the delay with it's backlink's update period
Google have managed to control the link broker's pagerank

Many would say that analyzing Google's backlinks
is close to worthless, but still you need to know if your
partners have your backlink with your keyword hostet on a
good PR page.

Pagerank still have some importants and link's poiting to your
homepage is a part of the algoritme and relevant to some extend.
You will never know the exact number of backlink, and they would
be different from search ingine to search ingine.

Link building campaigns can be time consuming, and you will never
be able to guess the effect on the pagerank result.
The best link would be thoose coming out of the blue, from peoble
who decided your content is important and give you a link.

In the end I think it's thoose kind of link that make the difference
between PR 5 and PR 6,7,8,9,10 and off cause traffic.
Content is king and SEO is the throne :O)

Goolging your backlinks (with Technorati, Google, Bloglines, FindForward and others) often helps you to find feedback on your content. But agreed, the content you create is your actual wealth, the number of links pointing to it merely a symptom. One shouldn't try to get the most backlinks, one should try to create the best content. Ideally backlinks will then follow. Also, it's much harder to try to create many backlinks – people like to decide on their own what links appear on their web site.

I do agree it is worthless to analyze Google backlinks
