I hardly ever take a look at the hyperlink report in Google Search Console as a result of, properly, I hardly ever take a look at my hyperlinks for this website. However one thing triggered me to examine it and I observed the uncooked depend of hyperlinks reported on this software retains drastically dropping.
I reported in 2019 the Google Search Console hyperlink report had half of what it confirmed the 12 months earlier than. From 2.5 million hyperlinks again in August 2018 and to 1.2 million hyperlinks in October 2019. So I checked the opposite day and now I’m exhibiting 550,000 hyperlinks. That may be a 78% discount within the hyperlinks Google Search Console reported again in 2018.
Here’s a screenshot from now exhibiting 550,000 hyperlinks:
October 2019 at 1.2 million hyperlinks:
August 2018 at 2.5 million hyperlinks:
I do know in 2021, Google mentioned the hyperlink report isn’t a precedence for Google, John Mueller mentioned then “I do not see any have to spend a number of sources on the hyperlinks report – it isn’t one thing we inform individuals to deal with.”
However wow – that may be a large discount.
I do know new websites decide up new hyperlinks in that report pretty shortly.
Did you discover these modifications in your hyperlink experiences in Google Search Console over time? I’m not involved when it comes to rating functions, that is only a report, however nonetheless.
