My local business seo site had roughly ~ 3K backlinks from about 300-350 referring domains. Today, my ranking for 1 specific keyword plummeted to page 3 but the rest remained the same. Here's the weird part. I check search console today and I see only 153(!) total backlinks to my site! How could this be when it was thousands a few days before? They were not from the same domain, I had web 2.0's, pbn's, comments, and dozens of local citations all on different sites - now they're all gone in my backlinks section of webmaster tools. I almost feel like this is a glitch in their system. Has this ever happened to you? All of the pages are still indexed in google, both on my site and the backlinks. My ranking dropped only for 1 specific keyword, but only to page 3. Very curious to see if Google will show these links again on the next index.
