Drop in backlinks

    After checking my backlinks in google webmaster tools tonight there was a 85% drop compared to my previous backlink total which I checked around 1 - 2 weeks ago. I was wondering if any other hubbers experienced this or is it just me?

      Do you mean backlinks from other sites? How could that happen?

    No...I see it too.
    My blogs are okay, but the HP links are pretty much gone.

    We haven't made any major changes on our site as of late, so I am not sure what could have caused a sudden drop, though it should be natural to see fewer backlinks from HubPages than before with Hubs that are no longer Featured (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Featured-Hubs).

    Do you think that might be the cause?

      Ok i have found the problem its a google data refresh of webmaster tools basically. But the data in webmaster tool is only informational tools meaning that what we see there will not affect our ranking.

    Google changed their algorithm that is why it is happened.
