Why Doesn’t Google Tell me how many links I have?

Many suspect that the real reason is simply because Google doesn’t want you to know. Of course, you can use Google Webmaster Tools to look at a diverse cross section of your links and where they’re coming from, but it is unlikely that Google will ever cede and tell webmasters exactly how many links their website has.

Google also claimed some years ago that they don’t have the resources available to list and share this information which, given that they obviously have it for generating search results, seems a little odd.
