    So my Majestic SEO backlink count is going up but my Yahoo site explorer backlink count is going down, like literally at the same time over the past 4-5 days. How is that even possible?

    I've never had them go in opposite directions for so long, so how can I tell which one is remotely accurate?

    Thanks. I'll go with that though, I still can't work out why i've gained 2000 according to Majestic and lost 800 according to YSE, seems wild.

    majestic seo counts a lot of backlinks even from spam and bad neighborhood sites. Which is really not a good thing for my link building strategy.
