Google is listing no links, but Yahoo lists 15. From what I can gather,
Yahoo often counts links an order of magnitude higher.
You site is definitely in Google's index (search for
'site:http://www.endowment-claims-uk.co.uk/'). Getting good ranks is an-
other matter. I often think of site rank as a matter which involves a
great deal of inertia -- a popularity momentum. How will a site ever get
links without visitors to be aware of its existence? My Web pages (going
back to 2002) used to be merely invisible. When I moved to a separate do-
main in August 2004 and had my projects listed in MATLAB central (often
PageRank 6) for contributions I made. The pages began to be perceived as
ones that are worth crawling. The ranks improved over time. I know a few
people who can tell a similar story. It is total strangers who bookmarked
pages and recommended them in various forums that did the SEO.
