    I use Goggle Analytics and recently found there is a website that I've gotten " referrals" from links on THEIR site, but when I check out the site, my website link is nowhere to be found?

    Am I missing something? :confused:

    Google is going through some major changes in the way it lists and counts links. Sites that are PR6 may have 5 links listed. On my main site I'm #9 our of 100,000 with 4 links listed. Yet the internals of Google's webmasters tools show I have 1000+.

    Google is also slashing the number of sites they list/count. Searching on some key phrase will show 12,000,000 pages on Bing and Yahoo while Google lists 1,000,000.

    At present I see no alternative but to ride with it until wiser heads have enough data to figure out what Google is doing (and work around it.)

    the only possibility here is that your site has been hacked and most likely sold to russia

    I'm not so concerned with the number of links, but if Google is showing a link to my site from this page, why can't I SEE the link on that page? I wouldn't mind so much, except that it's a competitors website.

    Is there a way I can find the "link" on the site? It doesn't show up when I view the source code.
