same thing here.
400K backlinks down to 310K overnight.
Blekko is pretty poor in terms of accurate counts in my opinion.
Strange - the inbound link count in Google Webmaster Tools is still showing the same number though.
The one good thing, since we monitor 20 competitor websites every day and detail their backlink counts - I can see that everyone of their websites also have this drop - within 5% difference.
They have either have changed the way they are counting (ie only acknowledging X number from any given domain) - or they have a bug.
Strikes me as being strange that they would update their methodology on the way to shutting their Site Explorer down in the coming months. Why would they do that or make any improvements to it?
