this happens every now and then with site explorer.nothing to worry about at all as it will all become normal in a couple of days for sure.

Happened to me too, backlinks have fallen from ~70k to ~30k. Not that it matters to me, site explorer can show any number it likes but as long as my rankings are fine that's all that matters :)

YES!!! 99% of my websites have the "old" backlinks back. The drop also effected my traffic, so i think my traffic will go up as it was.

Ok guys, here's the deal.

You built thousands of backlinks linking to your site. But here's the problem... what's linking to that backlink to create its relevance and linkjuice?

What I always do is create a mini linkwheel among the backlinks.
Yes, it is troublesome and takes time... thank god my backlink software automates that.

For instance, you have 500 backlinks. Split them into 25 and link to each other.

did a little snooping around to find out what was going on.

Heres the deal:

Quoted from: xxxxxxxx (I can't seem to post links yet.)

There are reports at WebmasterWorld and DigitalPoint Forums that Yahoo Site Explorer has lost a huge chunk of the links reported in the tool.

Honestly, I am not sure why people are surprised. Yahoo no longer runs their own index and the links would be dropping out sooner than later. Yes, Yahoo told us the data will be migrating from Bing Webmaster Tools but it hasn't. As Yahoo's search index becomes stale, so does Site Explorer.

So what is going on?


Hemant Minocha, Product Manager, Yahoo Site Explorer said yesterday in a Yahoo Suggestion Board thread that they are working with Microsoft to bring back all the data. He said:

We are working with the Microsoft team to ensure that webmasters can continue to use Yahoo! Site Explorer to view inlinks (a.k.a backlinks) to a given webpage or a website and to further be able to export them as CSV if desired.

Please note that this functionality will be available only through the Site Explorer UI and not through the Webservices API.

So according to this, Site Explorer will exist on Yahoo, but be using Microsoft link data. But the API for Site explorer will die.
