GooMurmurs on several forum threads suggest that Google is updating its Backlink count and index at the moment.
According to a string on DigitalForum, several website owners have seen significant drops in their backlinks, while others have lost web pages from the Google index.
While nothing has yet been officially announced regarding the update (I am sure Matt Cutts will post something in due course if it is official), evidence suggests something is happening in the Google data centers.
While many skeptics suggest that watching Google’s Backlink count is a waste of time, as the search giant only appears to count a subset of a website’s total backlinks and then only updates its published counts sporadically, it’s hard to ignore these Backlink count movements.
It’s even harder to ignore when it’s a well known fact that relevant backlinks are critical to your ranking success in Google. What’s worse is when webmasters start seeing their pages disappear from the index also – that’s a double whammy.
Anyway, if you’ve noticed changes in your Google Backlink counts or have had some of your pages removed from the Google Index, share it with our other readers, as your probably not alone.
