    I just logged into my admin dashboard as I always do, and all I'm looking at are my comments and recent posts.

    ALL incoming links just went poof!

    Any suggestions? This is freakin me out.

    Patience. That's just technorati being down or slow. It won't break your blog.

    I will take your word on this HandySolo, as you have much more knowledge than I do, but it scared the hell out of me too. Funny thing though, I went to Technoarti and they still show the links, it is just my dasboard that doesn't.

    Hmmm.

    For what it's worth, I'm seeing the same thing on my blogs. In previous versions that would "hang" the dashboard page. Now, fetching that technorati bit is async so if it isn't there right away, no harm.

    Thanks so much, they are indeed still in technorati; phew!

    But I just dont get it. I've had the blog up since Dec. and this is the first time this has happened...why all the links at once and any idea when they will come back?

    I have the same thing too. There's no incoming links on my dashboard. Glad to know that I'm not the only one having this issue.

    I noticed this week that all of mine are gone too - I have 10 blogs and not one of them have it there. And some are with earlier versions of WP.

    Yeah is this not a wordpress thing?
    Can it not be fixed?
    I really liked that information...it was important!

    I'll add to this problem, which I do think is limited to WordPress---My site meter won't work, and I even tried another version--as soon as I install a site meter/counter it messes up my blog.

    and for me this happened after we attempted to upgrade..I say attempted because the upgrade didn't work with one of my sites...but now both are not showing the backlinks....

    Is anyone going to be looking at this and trying to fix it?

    For crying out loud, people. It happened to everybody at the same time because Technorati is not working properly.

    In other words, the links disappeared because the source of those links is unavailable.

    It's not a WordPress thing.
    It's not a bug.
    Nobody can fix it.
    Wait for Technorati to make their systems work again.

    What you see on technorati.com and what you see in the incoming links are served by different parts of technorati. Not seeing those incoming links is not a flaw or a bug, it means that technorati's search mechanism is too busy/overloaded to respond right now.

    Patience.

    Patience indeed. Thanks for the info y'all. I noticed the disappearance of Incoming Links this morning and was wondering what was up.

    Same problem. Uploaded WP 2.3.1 and as it was also the case with 2.2.2 again no any incoming links at all, as well as other things missing. The Dashboard refuses to execute the commands. It has nothing to do with technorati. With the latest versions of WP, the old file index.php under wp-admin is now split into two files: index.php and index-extra.php. It seems that for some users this is not a problem and they get incoming links (google or others). We uploaded the plugin to restore technorati, all seems well but no any incoming links. But looking at the program lines all seems to be OK but it simply does not work on our server.
    Maybe there is a relation with the type of server or other criteria (windows based or unix based?). For us this is anyway a bug in the WP software. Not been able to understand why it does not work.

    On another blog, based on another server and running WP 2.0.3 all is fine - incoming links, technorati etc.

    We dowloaded for a short time the index.php file version 2.0.3 on the other server and technorati came out... Of course we had to restore it back because of other problems.
    Now up to the brains to sort this out.

    Further to the previous entry: continuing tests. Some blogs on different servers do show the incoming links. My one does not. See here how the code looks for the dashboard (only the part where the links should be), you can see it is simply missing. The commands don't work. So again, NOT Technorati but a bug related to different server environments.

      So, no any "specialist" can solve this. It makes me wonder if I should abandon WordPress. The problem is still there but, explain THAT, today the incoming links were there for 10 min and then were gone again when I logged in again after 10 min. My other old blog still works fine...
      Anybody out there who can help?

      As stated several times in the thread, this is not a WordPress issue. All WordPress does is send a request to Technorati or Google blog search for a list of URLs.

      If no list is returned then WordPress can't display it.
