    Hi guys
    I know this is so stupid but I bought a domain and all its backlinks no longer exist?

    I was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol when buying the domain. I checked its backlink profile and it had 60 unique referring domains. I manually checked a few of them and they seemed natural.

    I paid for it a few days ago and now I checked again and it has zero backlinks. none.

    just a warning, there could be a scam going on, domain owner will add backlinks to make a domain more valuable, then remove them once you pay? or maybe I was checking the wrong domain, maybe I copied and pasted the wrong shit into ahrefs. I cannot know for sure.
