    Hi ... about one year age, February 2012, my web site had just under 4 million links to its 1500 pages. As of yesterday, the same web site has 890 links to about 100 pages. Perhaps it's a mistake or a fluke, as my web site shows on page one of SERP, mostly, for 36 key terms. I wonder what happened? Am I stuck with 890 links after almost seven years of WH link building? Good grief. What do you think? Thanks. dgp

    If the backlinks drop you see is in google webmaster tools, you have to be aware that they admit its a bug on their system. So, you don't have to worry until they fix the bug.

    The 4 million "white hat" backlinks statement is a bit hard to swallow, but if true then the backlink checking tool(s) you're using is inaccurately reporting your backlinks.

    If your site is still ranking, then I wouldn't lose sleep over it.
