I created a blog for a friend of mine and decided to stick in a backlink to my website at the footer.
The issue is that there's about 15 pages over the past 2 weeks and I checked on majestic seo and it's telling me I've received over 20,000 backlinks in this time?
I'm wondering if it's an infected website generating spam somehow.
I had a search to see if anyone has this issue before I posted. I have since removed the backlink and awaiting to see a reduction but I'm just curious as to why it could be doing this?
I know people have positive and negative comments regarding footer backlinks but I'm just curious at this first of all.
