    Is it possible to lose a backlink? I just noticed in my Hub stats that I've lost some incoming links.

      Yes. The link may have been replaced or the post linking to it removed. I think that is normal. I see it all the time on my site. The back-link numbers fluctuate.

    Yes you can lose links, and remmeber that the hub stats tool doesnt count backlinks, it merely gives you an indication on your backlinks in a 5 star ratings system!

    i lost my backlinks too and it is on my hub that has the most traffic. Traffic is still increasing but funny I too noticed last night that it no longer has any back links when last time i looked it had like 4  . .whats up with that?? And all the traffic (well most of it) comes from outside Hubpages.

    hopefully you are checking your backlinks with a more precise tool than hubstats

    site explorer is rather easy and still pretty accepted

    or the link command in google

    link:www.yourUrl.com or link:http://www.yourUrl.com

      Is that true that Hubstats is only a rating system? Kind of the strength of your backlinking efforts. Sunforged, I not familiar with your suggestions, would you be kind enough to elaborate. Thanks smile

    sure:

    yes: hubstats is just a 1-5 star general quick glance type of metric - one star DOES NOT equal one backlink

    Yahoo site explorer checks backlinks - type yahoo site explorer into google and you will see what i mean

    The link command is an operator for google search, you literally type what I posted into the google search with 'youurl" replaced with your own

    the results that google posts will be sites that link to "yoururl"

      Unless your web page has higher PR value backlinks the Google link:www.example.com command won't show any of them.

      I like Yahoo's site explorer much better than using Google's operator. Or Google's Webmaster Tools, but unfortunately we can't use that with hubs.
