Also for conform i checked one more site. this another site's back links too shows more less amount of back links from 22000 to 7500. agriya.com

    Yea, this is just Yahoo purging links in their database. Don't really worry about it.

    Did your rankings drop? I'm sure the answer is no, the links are still there, Yahoo is just displaying less so no worries.

    Do not worry. I have the same thing. It's already the end of this service.
    Check the following pages:
    opensiteexplorer.org
    ahrefs.com
    majesticseo.com
    backlinkwatch.com

    That's true but still gives the correct results, in contrast to yahoo siteexplorer.

    There have been some rumors that Yahoo Site Explorer will be shutting down by the end of this year. If not, perhaps early next year. Maybe that scenario has something to do with it.

    I have seen a huge decrease in my backlinks according to Yahoo...I supposed they are not updating their database anymore in that tool.

    This is known one that Yahoo may or might be considered as a second best SE in web world. So yahoo wont think to lose its customer being as a second man. But the rumor is spreading in air that Yahoo is going to close by this end of the year.

    We can't say exactly that yahoo is not updating its data base or its going to close by this year or any other issues may live with them. Who know exactly about yahoo except yahoo?

    Most of the site's back links may cut down into off but the keyword positions for a website are standing in the same place without any changes. so its not giving any affect for Google keyword position. I think that there is no any deep relation between yahoo back links and Google keyword position. And also the PR is not changing by this reduced back links.

    In total yahoo is using for website back links in SEO.

    I have read somewhere that from sometime yahoo site explorer be unable to provide the accurate result for the user. So my advice is to check the other place for your site backlinks report and then check both the report so this way you will find the perfect result for your site. And for the report of the backlinks and to track the site you can use the google analytics tool as it will provide the accurate result for your site with complete details.

    Spying on us, huh?! Given that the vast majority of links built to Agriya in the past are low quality social bookmarks / directories / article submissions / profiles I'm not surprised that Yahoo is purging out all these links. They probably never added any value in the first place.

    Facing same for my links also, Yahoo is clearing up with data storage, or may be shutting down.

    usually these type of variations will only be seen in Google. But yahoo also started to show some variations. Let me check and see.

    Yahoo Site Explorer is not just the only tool that we can use to check our backlinks. There are so many free backlink checker tools out there that we can use.

    It's already confirmed that Yahoo Site Explorer will be shutting down this coming November 21, 2011 (Monday) according to some news (searchengineland.com). So it has something to do with the information that they are providing recently.

    You can check your backlinks using other backlink checker tools like seocentro and backlinkwatch.

      mosthost, not to worry, you can use:
      SEO Spyglass
      Majestic SEO or
      Open Site Explorer
      instead.

      Well, of course, there are not like Yahoo Site Explorer, but what can one do?

        Thanks for the links.

        I also checked out the link command in "Blekko." Not too bad. I like how it will sort them by date. But it doesn't show many links!

          mosthost, yes blekko has long been considered a handy backlink source, plus its free - and blekko is one of 412 sources in seo spyglass so you are sure to get plenty of links out of it
