    Hi,

    recently I am building a lot tiers for my moneysite (tier 1, tier2, tier3) and when I took a look on ahrefs.com today I saw that there is a massive drop for my website.
    On February it was about 1k total referring pages and now its about 630.
    Few months ago I ordered a fiver gig for my money site. Is it possible that it has something to do with it?

    I am building many backlinks per day since 2 months, but how is it possible that ahrefs show it is decreasing?
    does it also count tier 2 backlinks? or only tier 1s?

    The only links that count for your site are the ones pointing to...your site. So tier 2 does not count. Also, backlinks being dropped is pretty normal, expecially since you mentioned using fiverr gigs for backlinks. A lot of the time, cheap or low quality backlinks will drop.

    Look at your link loss rate on ahrefs, building backlinks is one thing, and getting them to stick is another altogether.

    Maybe the one I ordered on fiverr were weak and getting deleted/lost now.
    But the ones I have the control (Tier 1s I created manually) are still up.
