I also noticed this.. What is the point of the inlink section if it never updates?
I do have the same problem I am going to flag this massage my Page analysis and web site statistics never changed even after I have added several pages and my inbount links has doubled?!
It's FREE, what do you expect?
Google is not updating my web site information, except for the site map links and the spider rate visit, non of the links, and Page analysis has been updated though I did several changes to the site and added several pages. Do you know if I need to do anything to let google reread the whole site?

I've had an update this morning. A different backlink total for the first time in maybe 3-4 months.
And... my backlink total has fallen! God dammit!

Same for me as it seems.

If you take a closer look, it seems as if in particular a number of scraper directories have been wiped out, which is not that negative at all, but obviously a step towards more quality.
I assume there may be a connection with that new "report paid links" tool in WC (ist that really the abbreviation for webmaser central?;), which we discussed here [webmasterworld.com].

Oliver - You think they are not showing you links that they believe are paid? That would certainly be interesting, but is way more feedback than I would expect them to give. Makes it to easy for link purchasers to determine which are no longer good links...
Probably low on the priorities list of things to do at Google..
Whomever (individual/team) is managing this is probably on other projects for now..
Give it some time...it's a good resource and should eventually have some work done on it again...
trakkerguy, I always thought I was paranoid, but now I found my master. I bow my head in modesty...
looks like they finally updated the links today.
Maybe this can be explained by Vanessa Fox's departure from Google. [vanessafoxnude.com...] (She's leaving because the webmaster tools aren't what they should be ... or the webmaster tools aren't what they should be because the product manager was checked out).
Mine finally updated so hopefully yours did as well. My ranks have not moved significantly since Late March, the same time as the previous WMT update. J
I look after about 60 sites and use this tool. I'm fairly certain that the rankings and click data (like the link: query) are a random sampling.
The 20 results are definitely NOT in order of demand (i.e. most popular phrase would be number 1). I have a fair few sites that are in the top 100 for some one word super-terms but they never show up.
In fact whilst I am grateful for it because it's free I would far rather pay for a complete tool!
