Its not something new that google doesn't show backlinks. It depends on which service you are using. For example, google always hides as many backlinks as possible if you other websites to track your backlinks.
I believe you have not tried "Google webmaster tools". Check that out first. My website shows 0 backlinks if i use some other service, but if i use webmaster tools, it shows 37 backlinks. Just another google's marketing strategy. If you have a pagerank more than 1, then you can do it another way. Just type "link:yourwebsitename.com" in google search box and you will get the backlinks to your website. But this option requires page rank 1.
