At SES in San Francisco this morning, Matt Cutts, of Google announced that since last night, Google Webmaster Tools is now showing more back links and a better diversity of links that are available to download. Previously, he said that links were sorted A-Z and the first 100,000 links were given. This has been a very frustrating point for many SEOs and webmasters trying to dig themselves out of a Google Penalty. This is great news for many webmasters who have larger amounts of back links and are unable to rid themselves of toxic or poor quality links. For a example, at VerticalResponse, the 100,000 links would only be around 10-15% of the total links pointing to our site, according to Google.
Matt said an official Google blog post will be up within the hour and we will keep you updated with that. Here is a tweet from SES San Francisco, right after Matt’s announcement.
