Google will never show you your true backlink count. Never have, never will.

Because they are evil. Actually I have no idea why google does some of the things they do.

I honestly have no idea. My only guess is privacy or the fact that they do not want competitors to "spy" on the link count.

I read somewhere that only links above a certain pagerank are displayed.

Not sure how true this is.

That could be true. I know I have a lot of low ranking links that dont show up at all, while some of my "better" links do show up.
