Missing Link Data in Google Webmaster Tools

Late last night I noticed that the link data for my sites was missing in Google Webmaster Tools.  I assumed this was the result of some routine maintenance on Google's end and thought nothing of it.  Apparantly this may not be the case, as I came in to work this morning and discovered the the link data was still missing, and was also missing for every single one of our client's sites (both external links and internal links).

I'm not going to throw out wild theories about what Google is up to, but it will certainly be interesting to see if anything comes of this latest development.  If I had to hazard a guess, I would say the most likely explanation is an update of the link database.  However, when it comes to Google, as we all know, the only people that really know what's happening are the people at Google.

    Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
