GG says the number of backlinks in this index is more accurate and larger than the previous update. GG admits that some people may not understand his apples and oranges analogy - here's my take on it: Dominic (previous update) implemented a change in the way backlinks were reported. Esmerelda (new index) uses that same method of reporting backlinks, so, comparing your backlinks between Dominic and Esmerelda is a relevant comparison (apples to apples). Link to quote

markus007, it's nice that the reported number of backlinks are both more accurate and for most folks should be larger than Dominic. The reported number of backlinks for now vs. 2-3 months ago were apples and oranges (that's why I counseled patience when people thought that their number of backlinks had dropped in Dominic), but now vs. Dominic is apples to apples. I'm just putting that out there for the experts who are really hard-core backlink watchers.

If you don't understand any of what I just said, erm, then you don't really need to worry about it. You can just rest easier knowing that our backlink reporting is more accurate now. :)
