    The website was offline at the time of the last majestic crawl

    OR

    They blocked the crawlers meanwhile :D

    There is a majestic write up about this I read on their blog. There are many reasons for this. One reason say if you put a threat in a forum. If the thread gets bumped to the second page its deleted, if Majestic goes back and crawls the first page, but not the second. That is one of the most common reasons.

    The main reason is, that the crawlers are unreliable. Site could have loaded slowly or there was some bug in the time of crawl etc, so yeh, very often the deleted links are still there. This is one of the reasons why TF fluctuates so much. One day the crawler sees the link, the other it doesn't and the TF drops. Then it finds it again and TF gets back to its previous place. Ahrefs has a tad better crawlers, but still nothing amazing. It's normal and there isn't much you or Majestic can do about it.
