    I havent been building links for at least 4 months because I didnt want anything to happen to my site. So when I looked at ahrefs it show like zero links being built for months. Then in the last month there is alot of links being shown being built with exact match anchors on really bad websites. The dates on the blog say 2 years ago but my link is put under the article at the bottom with a bunch of other links. Is it possible that someone is putting these links in way after the article was posted? Why is ahrefs only finding them now? Am I being neg seo'd? Someone please help!

    some times i think ahrefs feeds off of google the domain count is too close some times to be independent services sifting threw the net... old googs obviously got more resources and pipe then that.. could be maybe you made those links back in the day and just now they are being indexed or perhaps those sites got tanked back in the day and bounced back and reindexed and hence the new links. did you check if there is last edited times maybe that will give you some insight. are these contextual links or comment links?

    They are neither. It has the article then at the end of it it has like 5 links stacked on each other. I just dont understand why all these links are showing up now? Is it possible someone just put them on now. They are really crappy sites.

    Yes its possible someone went into the article and added the link. In AHREFS you can see between which dates it was possible for the link to be placed.

    1st verify those backlinks, when backlinks posted. If the backlinks done 2 years ago and ahrefs is showing now that means that website blocked ahrefs spiders from accessing their website and now those block removed.
