    Hi guys,

    today i make 20 dofollow backlinks to my website but when i go to ahrefs.com to check my backlinks it shows me that i have only 1 backlink, so just i have 1 backlink or there are something wrong in ahrefs?

    I would guess it's probably because "ahrefs" doesn't yet know that you added the other twenty backlinks. "Ahrefs" and other backlink tools do not update in real time. Wait a couple of days, and then check again. Depending on how many backlinks it then says you have, you will have some idea of the lead time between adding the links and the links being discovered by the backlink tools.
