I have two websites hosted on the same server (same IP), say www.example1.com and www.example2.com.

Google Webmaster Tools has been set for both the websites years back and everything was fine till the beginning of this year. Upon checking the backlinks for www.example2.com in Google Webmaster Tools, thousands of links were listed as backlinks from my other website www.example1.com. But not even a single page at www.example1.com has a link referred to by www.example2.com. I have rechecked it.

I cannot understand why in my Google Webmaster Tools it is like this. SEO is perfect and clean for my sites, Can somebody please provide a solution to resolve this issue?

  • These links had to have existed at one point even if not now. It takes a long time for links to drop from the index. You may be looking at 6 months or more. – closetnoc Mar 9 '16 at 14:47
  • Since you control abc.com too, you can ask google to reindex it, which might fix the backlinks issue. – barrycarter Mar 9 '16 at 18:41
