well Digital Inspiration is one of the three sites that I mentioned earlier to have recovered.Now that Amit himself had posted it, I don't have problems in letting it known here.
I still know of two other sites that have recovered.One of them is in the sistrix list.
Coming back to backlink profile, I do notice a drop in number of domains (and the total number of links) to all the inner pages, whose ranking have gone down.I keep an history of my backlink profile (as in GWT) and I clearly notice a drop.Is it that google is discounting some links?
I also see a clear pattern here.greater the loss of links, greater is the drop.
But what I fail to understand is how did those backlinks disappear suddenly? Could it be that google is discounting a certain percentage of links based on the quality score?
or is it that the backlinks have really vanished because of google not crawling certain parts of the web?
But how are certain sites able to recover immediately?
for eg, digital inspiration and cultofmac. Is it that when they update the quality score, those links that got discounted are counted again?
But there is a clear pattern and I definitely see a change in the backlinks to the inner pages.
