For the longest time, Google had been showing a low number of backlinks for my site. Then, after they updated backlinks the last time, they showed a higher amount. Nowhere near the real number, of course, but a healthy increase none the less.
In the last couple of days, my backlink count has rolled back to exactly the low number it was before the update.
Anyone else seeing this backlink count rollback?

I spliced these two posts together because they seem to be related to me. In fact, recently it seems like several kids of data has gone backwards. In one case I noted, the snippet reverted to an earlier version. In another case, I saw a cache date go backwards.
I've also noticed some PR values going back - although I don't watch those numbers very closely at all.
Yes as I'd reported on another thread, I've actually seen fluctuation in PR and backlinks ever since the 30th Sept update. It often changes daily.
My main site's homepage has been moving between PR4 / 5 ever since and backlinks between 593 and over 29k which is much more like it. 593 is completely wrong.
Interesting I had a page in the "Penalty Box" for a month. It was freed from the box for a few days, now it's back in. That's rare. Definite sale at Walmart.
|I must say I like the new Firefox 2.0 edit box spell checker ( freed / free'd ), but now IE 7 has that Zoom feature, hmmm . |
Pretty much my whole site(php and html) vary in their pr from day to day and even morning to evening...noticed this for at least the past month.
Yes change on numerous sites.
I noticed a rollback on the traffic, during the november my traffic had rise of 15%, but after 28/nov turned all back again.
Dont is a problem after all, also I've a lot natural traffic... but for who lives from the income of sites feels bothered with such changes. Remembers the fear of wake up someday and see your site loosing huge traffic of the G and income.
My sites been going back and forth from Toolbar PR5 to PR6 now for at least the past 2 months.. I think it's time to turn that baby OFF.
It might help in understanding some of this oddness to note the actual Google IP adddress that serves the results. What I see happening is that the various data centers are not aligned right now, but the numbers from any one data center are not changing.

That's what I'm see also. For me, looks like three distinct sets of results right now.
Yep agree with Tedster datacenters not aligned and of course some data cleansing is taking place. Been tracking this and the plex doing a good job on this. I love google when it fights spammers.
I havent noticed any PR update or rollback in the last couple of days.
However, as I am subscriped to google alert service, I have received an email this morning stating that there was a backlink update to the site am subscriped with.
