    Losing backlinks in google

    I checked the number of backlinks I have for my site in google and I noticed that since last week the number has declined my 10? Do links get removed by google and if so what could be the reason for this?

    It could be that Google isn't reporting all the links they know about (the site: command shows a small sample, whereas Google Webmaster Tools shows a larger sample - though still a sample). Or maybe Google thinks the missing links just aren't 'good' enough to count.

    It's also possible the links no longer exist or are on pages no longer in Google's index for one reason or another.

    It could be some natural fluctuation, just continue to build links and the problems will be solved.
