Google Search Console Backlinks

by @selfiebooth (120), 4 years ago

Hi Everyone,

I am currently busy building backlinks for my website. However, what I notice is that I see a very big difference between the number of backlinks that Google Search Console sees and Ahrefs. Google SC currently sees 69 backlinks but Ahrefs sees 738.

Does anyone have any idea why this is and how I can fix it? Or is the Google SC just a lot slower to detect?

Thanks a lot

Yes, same what happens with me as well. I also noticed for my website. It may be because Ahref is paid tool it gets updated faster than search console.

Google takes a while to update. Stop worrying so much about backlinks. They don't matter all that much. You're just wasting time when you could be making new content.

backlinks will grow by itself if you have great and usefull content, google now makes a special attention with user experience

Yes, it actually takes longer time for Google search console to detect your backlinks, may takes up to weeks.
