it was a surprise reduction in back-links and we don't know what happened, traffic is still good, over 5k uniques per day for a niche seller of computer related product.

You mean WebmasterCentral or link:site.com search?

Either way they are just not being shown to you, they do exist in Google

As walkman said, it seems that Google is showing you fewer of them but other sites like Alexa and Yahoo seem to show them all.

The problem with showing backlinks at all is that it gives your competitors an edge, they can try to get the same links and your link graph makes it easy.

thanks walkman and Sgt.
link:www.site.com command is what we use.
and we are aware of yahoo showing them all, although we don't see quite the extensive list on alexa.
this just SLAPPED us, and we don't know why it happened.
I was just trying to see if anyone else saw this or perhaps there is a reason to do with us, if no one else has.

The site:www.site.com stats have gone from over 14,000 after the recent mayday to over 86,000, traffic is better than ever and conversions are good.
we were just trying to see if anyone else had seen this.
thanks again
