    Couple days ago a large portion of my backlinks across multiple sites on the same IP address ... just disappeared from yahoo site explorer. My impressions in google webmaster tool decreased to a relatively small percentage of what they used to be and I was extremely scared that i somehow upset the powers that be.I checked analytics and my traffic was relatively the same so i decided to wait it out and see what happens.

    Today most of the backlinks have returned and even in the webmaster tool the impressions have been corrected. All as if it never happened.

    Im not sure what to think of this and since my whole SEO method is learning to avoid things that have an obvious bad effect on your sites, I am trying to make sense of this.

    Any help or experiences with this would be great.

    First post :D

    Hi same thing happened to me, it seems that yahoo were doing some maintenance to their site explorer over the weekend. A load of my links disappeared but they came back in 2 big chunks after another bit of maintenance so i wouldn't take it personally

    Just a glitch. I don't even check my earnings now to the end of each month - I have better things to do!
