I was wondering if someone can please tell me how it is possible to go from 60 backlinks for a new site to 0 overnight? At least according to Yahoo Site Explorer and the backlink checking sites I visited and Market Samurai. Oddly though, Google Webmasters has shown an increase from 3 to 9 links overnight.
The only thing I did was a comment on 2 high ranking relevant blogs (pr4 and 5) and once the comments were approved, I pinged them using Pingler.
Was this a mistake? What's the deal or perhaps yahoo is updating?
Backlinking is annoying with the lack of consistent information from the sources that are suposed to tell you what backlinks you have.
On a related not, does Blogger auto ping? I noticed I pinged my blogger feeder site for the first time last night and google webmaster finally shows the links today. Should I ping my articles as well on ezine, goarticles, hubpages, worpdress.com(although they auto ping I think as my self hosted wordpress blog does)etc or will google know it is me due to my ip address?
Is that info passed on through pinging?
