“Links to Your Site” count increased in Google Webmaster Tools on 12 February 2013 !!
On 12th February while checking up the GWT account we noticed that Google Webmaster Tools displayed a hike in the number of links to your site Section.
After a series of updates so far now I guess Google is trying to resolve the possible bug because of which, a huge number of links got disappeared and many of webmasters including me started worrying about the drastic fall in number of links.
But now it seems like they are on the track to resolve the issue. But on the other part the “Links to Your Site” section is still not showing up the actual results as the number of links that already removed by webmasters are also there in the list. So can we assume that the bug still exists ??
Looking at the list the links to Main Domain are also listed so I guess this was surely a bug and we had started to assume that the domains now onwards will not be considered for links and just for Branding. I hope that was a wrong assumption. thank god we didn’t started to work on the new strategy and decided to wait and watch for sometime.
At then end we hope that the actual count will be updated and we will get results of all of the efforts applied so far before the bug encountered. Keeping Fingers Crossed !!
