Default Anyone Help With Webmaster Tools Issue?

Hi all,

I know this isn't the norm question for this forum, but I wonder if anyone would be kind enough to advise me?

I consistently check Google Webmaster for my external links and I have
noticed that mine seem to be stuck on 297. I initially thought that
Google had just not updated the info for some time. However, on
investigation I noticed that the listed links change, but still they
are stuck on 297.

Can anyone provide me with a reason for this? I know I have far more
than this number of links to my site, but it seems really strange that
the number of links never goes past 297.

Have you tried contacting Google support? Last time I sent them a question, they were very responsive.

They don't have a specific contact section for Webmaster (that I can find). However, I did post on their forum about this and the only response I got was from a guy telling me that you don't get all the listings when you search via google using link:www.etc.

I kind of new that already and it didn't answer my question.

Got this response on the Google Webmaster forum.

'It will update when it updates, Google does not comment on these types of things here.'

I appreciate why they wouldn't inform you when it is going to update, but this is not quite the same. Not very helpful really!

One question would be whether they really have changed or whether they're just displaying in a different order for you, as 297 seems to be a strange number to stick on.

Yes, I did consider this. However, on checking there are articles that I have only just posted recently that are appearing in the list, so it must have updated recently. It really is strange!

For what it's worth, I sort of think that other search engines seem to update their backlink counts more frequently and that increased frequency means they're more useful to me for monitoring my link counts.
