    Try using the Yahoo site explorer rather than Google to check your backlinks. It has better reporting.

    Dude he's talking about indexed pages not backlinks.

    Anyway back to topic, I also experienced that but in my case my blog is sandboxed so I don't bother at all getting my pages de indexed. In just 2 or 3 days it gets all dexindexed pages indexed again. I use
    Code:
    http://websitegrader.com
    since it's consistent but the pagerank checker of that sucks

    Yes, I'm experiencing the same for all my sites for a quite long time...
    Basicly the smaller number is number of "relevant" indexed pages, the true one..
    I assume that bigger number represents all pages (and variations of pages) from domain and smaller number is the number that google thinks that are quality enough to be served for somone who is searching some term which is connected to that pages in some way.

    That is quite a variance you are having with your site. Do you mean when you hit "show all results from Example.com" the indexed number changes drastically? The first # would include backlinks, the second would be pages specifically from your website. It often changes again when you click on "included all similiar pages that were omitted"

    Hope that makes sense.

    Honestly it sounds like you must be making a mistake somehow or something. Especially if it's reporting more pages than you even have on your site. Are you scrolling to the last page in the results and using that number or are you going off the first page? You have to scroll through to get the "true index" number at the end.

    You should check for webmaster tools for accurate page indexed. site: never reveals the truth for me.
