"No Data Available" In Google's Links To Your Site Bug

Jul 30, 2013 • 8:20 am | comments (15) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

Google Webmaster ToolsIt seems there are many webmasters complaining that the "Links To Your Site" section within Google Webmaster Tools is showing the error message, "No data available."

I personally do not get this and I believe there were no changes to the number of links shown in my report but there are dozens of complaints in the Google Webmaster Help forums with complaints about the issue.

Some even posted screen shots, here is a screen shot that I cropped a bit:

No Data Available Google Links

Google has not yet responded to the complaints in the forums.

Google Webmaster Tools is known to have reporting issues from time to time, so I would not worry if you are affected.

This is the second time that this happens. If this message is appearing, just wait that within a few days back to normal.

I have just received message in my webmaster tools that "No data available" Is it really issue or bug. Is Google launching new algorithm??

3 days ahead I have the links information but now it's missing. Not sure whether this is a bug or what or Google thinking of not showing backlinks information from now on.

Yes, we are having same problem for one of our sites (scootersparts.net). Its been more than TWO months as of Jan 10, 2014. If anyone lost the links (data) this long?

Sometimes this is a canonical issue. We have had clients with Google Webmasters accounts that have the www version of their site added, for example www.chromeseo.co.uk/ but could not see any links to site data. When we added the site as chromeseo.co.uk/ they could see their links. You can have both versions set up in Google Webmasters.
