Incoming Links reset - anyone else?

    All of my incoming links in the stats section are now showing only one incoming link. Previously, some showed 5 links. Has anyone else noticed a loss of links?

    If by "incoming links" you mean "traffic sources," mine are looking  like the usual full page of variations.

    Hi relache,

    More specifically, when you go to one of your hubs and you click the little "stats" tab, at the top of the hub page, it opens up to other tabs including "hub metrics" when you click on that tab it gives you the word count, revenue potential, incoming links and view duration. Are your incoming links showing only one star or square, while your view duration may be showing 5 stars or boxes? Previously I had 5 boxes for incoming links and 5 boxes for view duration, all for the same hub, now it shows just 1 box, meaning I don't have many incoming links to my hubs.

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed the same thing or is it just happening on my hubs.

    Thanks!

    All of mine are on one too, and I know that some of them have quite a few incoming links - because I built them myself on my websites.

    Where are you building your links?  Are they still there?  Have they been marked as 'no follow' by wherever you put them?

    Have you ever considered that in the face of others building more backlinks that now your Hubs don't have that many?

    HubPage metrics are only a very rough and imprecise indication of data.  And admin has never indicated what sort of numbers are indicated by 1-5 stars.

      Some of my hubs have dofollow links from at least 6 of my own sites up to PR4, either blogroll / sidebar links or links in actual posts of blogs, as well as links from squidoo lenses of mine and at least some other links that I haven't built myself but which i have noticed in the traffic sources stats. If that is supposed to be still classified the same as a hub with no incoming links at all then that seems very strange to me.
