    Lately, it's been about every 2 weeks...

    (see attached screenshot... it shows the dates they were updated since September)...

    Thanks Shawn,

    Got a backlink from a high 8 the other day. Finally back in the serps too. Number 30 but I'll make it to one again...around the tenth of March apparently

    Thanks again!

    Be careful what a "backlink update" means. It really means when does Google change the number of sites and links in the sample of backlinks it returns that are publically available.

    Internally, it runs on a differnet schedule to the publically avaliable ones (ie search results do not change when the publically available sample is changed).

    hi cbp .... we do quite often see the individual sites rankings change in the serps sometimes just before or just after google updates their specific backlink totals ...

    but yes ... i am NOT speaking of a general serp update ... just showing the new site specific results fopr their links into them ....

    right chp - very true. i should have said i did not see a public change to my backlinks on the 20th - though certainly google might have updated them internally before that. nevertheless, i have seen no publicly viewable change on the 20th. in fact, i assume a public viewing of the new backlinks should happen soon - i've been guessing this coming week for a while now.

    It's just the way the charting works... since it was generated on the 20th, it shoes it being a certain number of back links as of the date it was generated.
