Google Finally Updates Webmaster Tools External Link Data: February 2008 Update

google-webmaster-central-lo.gifWe reported several days ago that Google hasn't updated their external link counts and data in Google Webmaster Tools since early January. Webmasters and SEOs began to complain so Googlers began looking into it.

We now have reports via Google Groups that webmasters are seeing an update to their link counts in Webmaster Tools.

I would share our most popular pages according to Google but in early February Google removed the download table option and we now just have "download all external links." Of course, I can get to this data but I am at SMX and have limited time to mess around in Excel right now.

It would save me a lot of time and I am sure other SEOs and Webmasters a lot of time if Google put that option back.

Forum discussion at Google Groups.
