Whitehouse.gov Backlink?

I'm using SEO Spyglass and interestingly enough, today a backlink popped up in my analysis from whitehouse.gov. The site has a PR10 and SEO Spyglass says it's giving me link juice. However, it says No(Link Missing) so I'm not sure what to make of this.

Obviously a backlink from a PR10 .gov would be huge but it seems too good to be true and I'm 99.9% sure this won't end up helping me. Any benefit from this?

    Sometimes it will show because you might posted a comment on some other blog that is related to whitehouse official site..
    Don't worry about that.These missing links are still showing in your backlinks list but dont harm you.

      Hilariously incorrect.

    I wonder if you get the benefits from it though? This would shoot my particular site up if so.

    Maybe SEO Spyglass is just **** in determining backlinks?

    This seems to happen to me A LOT when using SEO Spyglass.
    It's a great tool when it works, but I ALWAYS ignore any that No(Link Missing), because i've found that it's how it says it is... There is no link, the link is missing.

    Just a fault with SEOSpyglass i think.

    You may have a valid point there. Although, SEO Spyglass definitely returns extremely valid results when I check for backlinks from Yahoo.

    I gave up on SEO spyglass for the reason that it seems to be very temprimental and give these random results sometimes. When it works it is good though.

    I'm guessing its a glitch as whitehouse.gov does not accept comments and the posts there are quite official so I couldn't see the editor writing a post and linking to all of your random websites.

      Hehe, IMO it is the recent update if so many ppl have encountered this.

      I did some research on a competitor and he had this damn PR 10 .gov whitehouse backlink. I thought - damn, I want one too. How the ... did he do that.

      It appears that is just a bug in spyglass.

      Are you guys using the free version?

    I'm using the paid version & apparently I saw this bug today itself.

    It seems Obama is really busy taking care of internet marketers

    It's from Blekko, it isn't spyglass's fault.

        I already suspected that there was something buggy with this Blekko backlink.

        But makes me wondering, is it possible to get a real backlink from the whitehouse website ?

            I saw there was a page where you could send in a youtube video with the subject "what can you do with 40 dollars".

            So I thought maybe there is are forum or something somewhere on the site as well...

    Yup, this is happening in both the free and paid versions. I've been noticing it for about the past week on EVERY website whose backlinks I have checked - some of which were my sites, but mostly competitors sites. So it's gotta just be a glitch of some sort.

    If the link is missing, it might have been removed, and you would be right, no link juice would be flowing your way
