SEO - Back Links

Hi All,

I'm having a very strange problem with one of my own sites.  I'm getting
back links listed on all other search engines except Google.

The site isn't black listed as it has a pr and does get a ranking for some

The site is

When you look at the url as above it gets a pr 1.  If you look at it gets a pr 2.

So, I started thinking about my Apache config.  When I looked at apache directed to me to a different site, the
default site defined in conf.  I added a serveralias of to the virtual server entry, and I added an A
reference to the DNS for good measure.  And now it
serves the right site.

Then I looked at a search on Google for "" and it
replied with back links for that default site.  I'm hoping now I've made the
changes above it will work properly.

Can anyone shed any light on what could be happening here please?

Many thanks in advance,

Google increments the number of backlinks, some of which (usually most of
which) it will not display to you. backlinks search gives you just a
selected sample, so do not be apprehensive.

Having said the above, there is a very rough correlation between the number
of backlinks that are shown and the ones that are found and counted.

This should not happen, but perhaps you have sites linking to both
addresses. Also, assuming you have not checked this over a long period of
time, datacentres might be unaligned.

As for the latter, there are people in this group who know Apache directives
far better than me and they will give you a reliable suggestion or

Hope it helps,
