    Has something happened to inbound links???!!!


    Hi,

    I have a site which has ranked well for years - white-peak.com, and over the last few years I have built up a number of inbound links.

    About 2 or 3 days ago, I discovered with horrer that the search link:www.white-peak.com now yields no results - not even internal links!!! Has something happened with Google recently that I should know about? The search +www.white-peak.com shows over 3000 inbound links so they are still there.

    Any help/advice gratefully received,

    Ed

    Thanks for your replies. Hey Enginyr - what did you type in order to see 64 links? I'm still getting zilch.

    Another strange thing - why have all my internal links disappeared?

    Any one got any ideas what might be going on?

    The is definately some sort of problem. I have also posted about this and another 5 people replied to my post that they are experiencing the same problem. As of today, I'm still showing 0 backlinks.

    Someone did say this happened to them a while ago and the links did eventually return so I'm hopeful the same will happen with my one site which has the problem.

    My site is also about 4 years old so who knows. It still ranks well, getting increasing traffic every day since it's existance.

    It has happened to us before and we recovered and it has now happened again to us.

    I am just sitting tight and waiting for the backlinks to return.

    I'm sorry but that's about the same as link+domain, i.e your www,domain,com AND the word link.

    I would prefer the "+www......" option, because not everyone puts the word Link on the links-page (I don't).

    Nice tip Enginyr. With the space I see an additional 26 links on my site.

    I'm not kidding people. You may just as well leave the link: part out this way. Then you'd get even more links...

    Try a link:[space]whatever.com, and you'll see the word link in bold somewhere in the serp descriptions, along with the whatever.com somewhere else. Same as putting a [+] instead of a [space].

    Thanks for the advice guys! For those of you who've had this happen to them, approximately how long did it take for the links to return?
