New yahoo site explorer
Has anyone noticed a sharp increse in their site's link popularity

 11:36 am on Jan 15, 2009 (gmt 0)


Apologies if I am repeating this question, but I have not been able to find any past discussions on this topic.

Basically, I use Yahoo's site explorer to measure my domain's link popularity and on average my domain gets 250 external links.

However this morning, when I did a search on Yahoo's site explorer, my site came up with 33,000 external links! which is highly unlikely.

Has anyone had a similar issue with the new sire explorer? Or can help me figure out what is wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Give it 24-hours and re-run it, it could simply be a glitch.

Thanks very much for your swift reply engine.

Yahoo, keeps showing inaccurate results though. I guess I will have to figure a different way to measure my site's link popularity.
