Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Does anyone know what could be going on or possibly has this happened to someone else before.
Also when i search for my links via the google search with link:www.site.com no links show up at all.
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated
On a separate note, the fact that nothing shows up for you with site:www.example.com, is one of 2 things:
1) Google hiccup - this has happened to me before;
2) On a worse note, it could mean that you've been banned from Google for a serious infraction;
Since I've never been banned outright, I'm not qualified to comment on why you are seeing stuff in WMT, but not via the site: command. I would hang in there, until WMT makes its next report on links available, before drawing any conclusions.
Caribguy - i haven't had anything for the last few weeks tho not just today.
doughayman - i dont think im banned when i do a site search my pages still come up in the index, it's only when i do an external link search for links pointing to my site that nothing comes up
I'm just hoping this has nothing to do with my rank dropping over 500 spots in a relatively uncompetitive niche. It's crazy actually, i have a site devoted 100% to the specific niche, and 1 post i put on one of my unrelated blogs about the same thing ranks higher right now ( first page actually)
Also no links show up when a link:www.site.com search is done, not even the one that are in my webmaster tools. I think i have something completely different going on
