As for the PR update... April 7 was the last PR update starting from the old CW datacenter (22.214.171.124) although it hasn't been stable. The prior PR was March 16th.
What I've been seeing over the past many months is that one month my listed backlinks go way up and the next month they go way down - rinse and repeat.
And the number of backlinks that the link command shows does not seem to have much relation to where my pages are in the SERPs or how much traffic I get.
I do think that the number of quality backlinks that my pages actually have makes a difference in ranking in SERPs - but that's something else entirely.
Using the Marcia IP I see far fewer links for my sites in backlinks. I figure nothing is done updating because I know bajillions are out there ;)
yep, backlinks have changed for me.
For the worse unfortunately. 104 links have shrunk to 57. Discouraging after it took google the best part of a year to recognise I had any backlinks at all. Rankings seem unchanged though. They didnt change for me after the last PR update either.
On closer examination I seem to have suffered far less than my competitors - some of whom have dropped from 300-400 backlinks to only 3 or 4 backlinks. Google does seem to have removed a lot of obvious reciprocal links. I'll be very interested to see how this affects PR and backlinks.
Did someone say that you can check your PR on the different datacentres? How is that possible?
