Do phantom links build up on WMT? I get them like how statcounter.com does. They place a link on the code that they provide, when they let people use their counter. I don't run a counter business, my field is in something else. My product comes with a link back also. Also users can freely choose to remove the link. I also give them two options to choose from. They can use the code with the link, or no link back. It's up to them.
But yea, when you get 5 digits per day, and assuming 25% of my visitors use my code, and they ususually do it site wide, you can a mass a lot of links I guess.
The site is 6 years old, so it's been doing this for a while, but like I said in my first post, the amount of link backs started to increase a ton just a few months ago.
