Google Link Tool & Anchor Text Tool At Webmaster Central Goes Down

Apr 19, 2007 • 7:41 am | comments (3) by | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

Various sporadic reports from both DigitalPoint Forums and WebmasterWorld that Google's Webmaster Central Link Tool is temporarily offline.

I tried it myself, just now and it seems to be offline for me as well. I am told "Our system is currently busy. Please try again in a few minutes." Here is a screen capture:

Google Links Tool Down

I believe Google is doing an update of your links in that tool. When I logged in yesterday, it was up, even though some reported it as down. And I noticed my link count went up about 70,000 links or so. But I have yet to analyze the data and bring it to you. I will.

As of right now, the tool is still down.

Forum discussion at DigitalPoint Forums and WebmasterWorld.

Update 8:15am: Now it is back up but shows me zero links.
