What is *Dropped* backlink in Ahrefs?
Ones that the site has lost.
Dropped backlinks are those you had but for some reason now are removed
Basically links that the site deleted or removed, or if an entire site went offline or deleted your URL.
thanks for your replies guys
but as i see all these backlinks are alive, moreover these pages still indexed in google
may be its some Ahrefs mistake?
At times when ahrefs bot is unable to access a webpage, it marks all the outbound links on that page as dropped. Same goes with majestic.
Yeah lost backlinks in both Ahrefs and Majestic is pretty unreliable, I don't pay too much attention to them unless its either a very important link or there is a larger than normal number of lost links. Other than that its mostly just noise.
Thanks for your post. Eased the Nerves!
It's pretty much self explanatory, a link that has been removed or is not live anymore.
Separate names with a comma.
