It is more than a month that there are 24+ links listed on my Google Webmasters Tools account. However, when I use Google like this: link:m.a.sharpasand.com none of them appears. Also, my PageRank is zero.

I have tried different variations of with and without www but it doesn't work.

My website is on a subdomain but I don't think that it is a factor because I have forwarded the main domain with moved permanently. Its address is: m.a.sharpasand.com.

Google link: command is not accurate. It only returns a sampling of your backlinks (not only important backlinks either) and it's not up to date at all.

Just take into account the number of links in Google Webmaster Tools.

Read this article on SEOmoz to understand.

Thanks a lot. I'm still confused about the pagerank is it accurate to check pagerank in prchecker.info? – Sheric Apr 16 '13 at 16:19
Focus on your visitors instead of PageRank. – Zistoloen Apr 16 '13 at 16:21
Thank you so much :)) – Sheric Apr 16 '13 at 16:27
