I had 49 links to my site in google and suddenly it all disapear. These links where links to my site, and during christmas everything vanished. The only clue i have for the reason that links disapear like that is thatan editor from odp visited my site the day before that happend. I had submitted my site to odp and i saw in my stats program that the editor came to visit my site and the day after my links disapear on google.So i have a question do editors from odp have the capability to influence google and tell them to take off my links.......

another thing you must know is that i had miror sites and that all those miror sites does not have inbound links anymore and it happend in the same period of time, all my sites lost there links.Of course i am removing my miror sites right now.Is anybody can tell me why i lost all my links in google? Thanks for any help

PR is closely tied to the number of links to your site. Google has lots of algos to detect trickery and faking/spamming. They might have mistaken your mirrors as spamming, and discounted them all.

Alexa says you still have 26 links

Rick, welcome to the board.
Forget about the ODP editor. An editor only could do the same thing as everybody else - fill out that form at Google.
The problem very well might be in those mirror sites.
You should probably wait for the next update to see what happens.

Thanks duncan, and thanks heini, so i dont need to worry about odp....thats one load off ok. Did you ever heard of anybody else that was deprived from their links and for what reason. I was wondering if google can do that to a site.

rick,

Do you have a grey PR bar? Is your site showing up in GG still?

You say during Christmas and the update happened shortly after and this is when sites can get banned.

Rick41, download the Google Toolbar with advanced features, then you will see what is one of the single most important factors for ranking well in Google: The "bar" which tells you your PageRank.

All my links have disappeared too, but I'm still getting referals from the sites that link to me in my logs. I'd say it's only temporary, and as you said, rankings don't seem to be affected.
