I now have 167 links down from 13K. My blog, which has 1/3 the visitors of my ecommerce site, had 29K links the day before yesterday. Today it has 263. No evil eye, visits seem to be holding.
ZydoSEO, all I can say is that for keywords I have bought ads for, whenever I quit buying ads for them, they dropped a couple slots. When I went back to buying ads, they went up again. This is with tiny spends. I have a friend who runs a site very similar to mine and who has had the same experience. It's a lot of coincidences if it is coincidence. This is over a period of about three years.
