    yes, there has been a major washing of backlinks. all duplicate links have been removed. and i love it. easier to track.

    No, it's happening across the board. Mine dropped in half, and then came back about 25% less than what they were showing originally.

    OP if you haven't seen a jump since they dropped off, you will probably get alot of them back. I did anyway on several of my sites that I was watching.

    Thanks guys.

    Over the last few weeks I have had over half of my pages deindexed (well omitted) and over half my backlinks

    Seems as if Google is doing something major.

    Saying that non of my SERPs have dropped. but my competition for that keyword isnt very strong
