Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I have a number of related sites linking to each other. One has a PR of 5 the other PR 4 - the PR 4 site has links on everypage to the site of PR 5. This seemed to increase my position on google.
I also used to see these pages as backlinks and all the internal links on the PR 5 site for many pages. Now when I check the backlinks via link: method they seem to have disappeared also my position on google has plumeted.
Are google updating the backlinks or have I maybe been penalised for over nepotism of links to each site.
these are many discussions going on at the moment regarding the latest google update.
as far as i know the link: command is useless at the moment, different DCs show different backlinks, give it a bit of time.
in the meantime check out the other threads
Anyone else have evidence of this or a network being wiped out?
