    Hello mates...


    Today I'm checking my backlinks, and my concorrency's backlinks...

    I saw a big big losses in the backlinks...for everyone!
    SEMrush
    In one of my sites, I had more than 1300 backlinks...now I have less than 700...
    And everyone has less backlinks...

    One of my concorrent had more than 800 backlinks, now he is with just 250...
    Other has more than 120, and now has just 14 :p
    A lot of others had more than 200-300, and now are all of them with less than 80 backlinks...


    What's going on? :confused:

    This explains a lot of ranking losses I observed without further investigation, but it might be temporary.

    If you used Google Webmasters to see the total number of backlinks to your site, then I must assure you that many webmasters have seen similar things. It is true that Google tries to "cloak" some of our backlinks and this alone emphasizes the fact that backlinks are still important for ranking.

    Hi, just want to share that I have the same question too. I have been trying to find out how my backlinks have been decreasing.. But what I noticed is that, the time that the links didn't decrease was the time when I was consistent and active in my internet marketing, and once I rested for say a week.. that's where I noticed that the links has shrank.

    That is just my observation. I am not sure if that is how it goes with everybody.

    Hoping the losses in backlinks are also temporary as well. I too have seen myself along with many others have big dips in backlinks. I would keep on trying to build backlinks up to make up for what has gone away.

    I have the same problem too I guess we need to build more and more backlinks and promote our site is that is? . I guess this is also a way for us to know that backlinks is indeed important with google.

    There must be something that we can learn from this. A very important aspect of SER and backlinks. Something that SE people is not telling us.

    i think maybe "CONSISTENCY" is what Google wants us to know is important...never stopping for even a day with our SEO

    Algorithm is what he means. Possibly true what he is saying. Maybe the crawler looks at backlinks a bit differently.
    By the way, my backlinks have increased rather than decreased.

    This may happens when you have more links from forum etc.. so once your account get closed or banned you will loose all your links..

    Yeah, may be it is because google is still in the process of re-indexing your site and its backlinks.

    Its no change for my sites..
    May be there are some indexing issues going on for your sites.

    Could be. I was thinking of this one possible explanation. If that is the case, how is it that one of the sites has its links keep shrinking for more than two weeks now? How long does search engine re-index your site? Or what is the interval of its indexing? It does not make sense.

    Yeah, actually bluebelt91, i think you are 100% right about that...i just closed my account at a forum, and POOF, i went down 10 pages in google...could that forum links have been THAT important...kinda surprising to think that it is that important to Google...sig links from just 1 forum...wow!
