On the other hand there are discrepancies.
- Backlink shows some cached pages of 2 months ago which have had 301 redirects on them for 4 weeks.
- When going to the Google Toolbar and checking for the cache of that same page, i get no cache
So where's the data coming from that supplies each of those results? Different DC's?
I almost never check backlinks very intensively on Google, but this thread pushed me to take a less casual look. Indeed, I do think I am seeing more than in the recent past. Since I pretty much pay no attention, I can only offer my subjective sense of this, but I know that some backlink counts for sites I work with are now up to maybe 30% of what Yahoo shows. Tha seems high to me.
Doing a search
link:nameofsite.com I get 0 (zero) links!
Doing the search adding www
link:www.nameofsite.com I get the right numbers of links
What does it mean?
I can only add that this kind of behavior is related to sites that had "supplemental" problems ( fully recovered..): other sites ( that did not suffer by supplemental, get the same number of links with or without www )
On an earlier post i indicated there were some conflicts on the Google Toolbar versus using the search box with link:mydomain
Anyway ..... somethings happening .... even if it doesn't work properly!
