    So I checked my WMT today and it's only showing me 86 links to my site. Last week it was at 3600, a few days back it was 1200. Now 86.
    What the actual fuck?

    I also checked ahrefs and it's showing me that I have approx 9000 links and that hasn't really changed.

    What should I believe?

    Also all my backlinks are highquality niche related guest posts, forum posts, blog comments facebook shares, tumblr backlinks and some bookmark and directory sites. All done manually by me so I know that none of my links are bad.

    It has been reported that WMT has a bug related to backlinks removal recently.

    I also see wrong numbers in WMT. So you donĀ“t have to trust on WMT.

    WMT is fine and you can use it for alot of useful stuff like checking CTR% and splittesting CTR%.

    Its confirmed theres a WMT bug atm, which shows you wrong numbers according to Backlinks. Instead you should ALWAYS use Bing to check your backlinks - Much better imo!
