Google Back Link Update? Google Blog Search Link Command Slow?

Nov 1, 2007 • 6:58 am | comments (6) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google PageRank & Algorithm Updates

A DigitalPoint Forums thread reports that Google has also done a backlink update recently.

Now, I think most people in this forum thread are talking about the command when searched at That backlink command is known to just show a sampling on one's backlinks and no the full set of backlinks.

If that is the case and people are noticing a change (or increase) in the number of backlinks reported, then there is not much to those numbers. I personally would ignore such an update. What you do want to look at are your backlinks reported in Google Webmaster Tools and Yahoo Site Explorer.

There have been additional reports of Google Blog Search not return recent backlink counts for specific URL checks. For example, an article I wrote yesterday, shows 0 backlinks in Google Blog Search, click here to see. This appears to be a small, temporary issue in Google. I suspect it will be fixed shortly.

The reason that one should analyze the backlinks using the LINK command is because there MAY be a possibility that those backlinks have more influence. One has to wonder HOW & WHY * THOSE * links are filtered out to be displayed. The only two realistic assumptions would be that they are done randomly or that they represent some prioritization. There has indeed been a recent change in backlinks credited as of the past couple of days -a s well as a slight algo update.

ooh thanks a lot for the tips? thank's for the good post?!!! yes cemlouis i just notice the notification there..either i missed that part when i upload the theme or they just recently updated their site and also make it more clear about their theme submit policy. but still is there anyway they can prevent anyone uploading someone else theme..that’s still the biggest question need to be solved. I know if i release a standalone theme with my own footer link without sponsor links..i would be glad to submit the theme there and they can add the extra links in the theme since the they got a very potential click download rate and that’s without a doubt since i did feature their site for great theme place but there’s still sponsors issue that need to explained if the sponsors suddenly asked about the extra link..what should i tell them?
