Yahoo! Search Link Update

Very early reports via WebmasterWorld about a possible Yahoo! Search link update. Funny that Google seems to be doing a link update today as well.

Anyone notice a charp reduction in backlinks? Mine have dropped from almost 6,000 to about 2500.

No idea why. I really hope 3500 sites didn't suddenly decide to stop linking to me :)

I've seen a sharp increase in backlinks today. I wonder if it will stick?

To check your back links in Yahoo!:

  1. Go to
  2. Enter in the domain name and click Explore URL
  3. Click on the "Inlinks" link
  4. Select from the drop down, "Except from this domain" and "Entire site"

I definitely see an increase for this site. On February 6, 2007 I documented I had 197,153 external links (except from my domain to entire site) and now I see I have 259,217 external links (except from my domain to entire site).

I have seen some activity but none really big!

I saw a drop from around 11,000 links to 6,000 a couple of weeks ago and now it's back up to 12,000.

It seems to me like there could be a major shift in Google's results.
