Google Fixed The Search Console Links Report

Google Link Chain Welding

The Google Search Console link report now seems to be fixed. As we reported last week, we saw a decline in links being reported by the tool, followed by a huge decline a few days later. The tool now seems to be showing the previous link count before the tool had that bug.

As a reminder, Google told us it was a bug and the team was working on fixing it. I still do not see a message in the Google help document about the bug, but when I do see it, I will add it to the story here.

Here is what I see now – where I am back over 288,000 links (which is still a lot less than I had years and years ago):
