Where should backlinks be located?

I have been using some of the tools available for looking at backlinking and comparing with competitors sites and some websites I look at have all the pages on their website linked back to the main url. Does it make a difference if on my pages I put backlinks to the main page as http://www.mypage.com/index.html or should it be http://www.mypage.com? Also how long should it take for these subpages to show in backlink searches as currently mine do not show.

I would usually just get links to your domain, although it shouldn't matter as they are one and the same.

As for how long for backlinks to show, well that all depends on how often search engine spiders the page your link is on.

Just link to mysite.com


No need to put index.html in the backlink.
