    Hello BHW,

    There is something that happened last day with my website's backlinks as I can see today in ahrefs.com tool please check below.

    links.jpg

    There is one website where I posted link as comment. I only did one backlinks per domain. But As I can see in that tool there are 1000 backlinks from same domain on 25 April 2013 and nearly 700 backlinks from that same domain on 26 April still counting...

    Does this cause my current ranking? how to prevent this in future?

    Please help me here.

    Typical example of someone blasting your site. This is what most competitors are reverting to nowadays. Iv seen it on my own sites and to counter it i have to keep diluting my backlinks because of all the jealous people out in Internet land. What comes around goes around i always say. Good luck with this.

    I can understand if someone is doing it how can he do from one website he should have created on various websites. Also I dont think that because of someone doing this to me. Don't know about the exact reason still searching for.

    You do realize that what your showing is a rise of 8k in backlinks in one day. It doesnt show me if its coming from 1 website. It simply shows a classic example of somone blasting your site. I doubt one sites backlinks is resulting in 8k in backlinks. Iv seen afew hundred but not 8k.

    That specific website have almost About 22,700 results in Google. Is it possible when I do posted backlink in comment it shows on with other post in same domain. Such as in side bar, recent comment. I am saying this because I can see only one backlink where I posted comment.
    But, simple I just don't understand its kind of new for me.

    I'm sure that it's not an attack, just some ahrefs update. I manage 25 websites and almost all of them had these spikes.

    IMHO, they got better at finding links.

    I think that we see those spikes only because Ahrefs got better at finding links.

    They found a lot of old links and added to their index.

    Its not an attack. I heard some blogs use plugins of some kind where if you post 1 comment you get links from all pages. Don't worry about that. Google will discount that link and it won't have much effect.

    Just to confirm have a look at your anchor text if its the same as the one you used for your original comment then its probably not an attack

    Yes you are right all 1000 links with one anchor text.
    I also check the other website who have their backlink on this website aaronwinborn.com/blogs, they all having 1000 backlinks per day. So, its not only me as you said this must be some kind of plug in.

    Here is the thing, I have tried same with my different sub-domains and getting the same results from that domain. But the main problem is because of this my anchor text diversification is changed. The one keyword I posted in that domain now have most percentage in backlink profile in just one day. I hope this will not cause my current ranking.

    You think without having sitemap on website, keyword will rank?

    Ahrefs is a tool to provide indications and some information. It is not reliable to analyze number of new and old links in my opinion and Google does not care about it at all. If you have 1000 links from one domain Google will treat it as 1 link, basically.

    Yes, now I can see difference in ahrefs and majesticseo. On other hand ahrefs says that they Updated their data in every 15 minutes and majesticseo 7 to 9 hours. But in majesticSEO I can see their some important backliniks which ahrefs is not showing.

    You aren't being attacked. You posted a comment on a website, and the website almost certainly has a sidebar module to display recent comments on all of its pages. Every link on a different page is counted separately, hence the large amount of links. It's happened to me many times, and it will correct itself when the site gets new comments.

    Its not an attack or anything dont worry. Its a sideroll link which will be displayed throughout the website . If you want to be safe just go post a few more comments on that website and your link from across the website will drop.

    So the ahrefs tool will show those extra backlinks as deleted?

    Love how people state it as an attack when it clearly shows its from 1 domain ^^ Just get your comment off from the recent comments, and you wont have thousands of links from the same domain. So I would spam some comments until my own comment is gone.

    I never say it is some kind of "attack" if you read question carefully.
    Thanks anyway.
