March 7th we reported Google Link Update Within Webmaster Central's Link Tool. But Vanessa Fox informed us the update was not fully complete, that we saw the link count update only and not the actual links update.
Meaning, Google showed you has X links. But when you download the details, it did not have all the links in the file that were reported.
I logged in this AM to check two sites and both sites had the new links in the export file. One site was slightly off, but I suspect that is possible.
So I figured I do a compare and contrast of which articles are the most popular (in terms of links reported via Google) from the last time I documented it. And there is a difference, a big one, why? Google said they were not fully done gathering the data for these reports when they launched, so things will change.
What I find very unusual is that the pages with the most amount of links are all from February 2007 and even more unusual is that a bulk of them are from February 20th. Something just seems wrong with that.
