Over the past week, many site owners have encountered a reporting glitch in Google Search Console affecting the ‘links to your site’ data. For a period of time the data had gone completely missing, even Search Engine Journal was affected by the glitch, which you can see below:
Google was made aware of the glitch and stated it was being looked into. According to what we’re seeing in our own Search Console account, as well as what we’re hearing from others, the data appears to be been restored.
Besides not having the data to work with for a few days, the glitch had no other negative effects to website. The data certainly hasn’t been lost permanently, which should come as a relief to those who were affected.
If the data is still missing from your account, it shouldn’t be long before the valuable ‘links to your site’ data is restored for you as well.
