Have you noticed a change in your link count within the Google Search Console Links To Your Site report? One webmaster said he noticed a drop in the more/latest links report by about 50% So he was rightfully concerned.

He messaged John Mueller who said that he should not worry, it might be related to a data update on Google's end. He said "that sounds more like data-changes on our side, I'd ignore it."

Here are the tweets:

We do know that the Google Search Console is undergoing infrastructure updates and the reports may be off in that time frame - so this does make sense.

So no need to panic says Google's John Mueller.
