Yahoo Site Explorer has big backlink update
In a move thats probably going to send the BlogStorm tracker haywire Yahoo has had a big update on the way they measure backlinks this week.
BlogStorm.co.uk used to have 50,000 links from external pages to the entire domain, this number has dropped to 3,549.
SEOmoz used to have over 1.35 million links but 1 million have been wiped out.
Assuming Yahoo are reporting links more accurately this is good news although it might take a bit of getting used to for some webmasters.
Previously Yahoo used to report links weeks after they disappeared resulting in large spikes when posts hit the front page of Digg.
How has your inlink count fared this week?
