You know that convenient spot on the WordPress dashboard that shows links leading to your blog? Guess what. As of WordPress 2.3 it doesn’t work anymore. Some genius thought that instead of pulling the list from Technorati, they should use Google Blog Search instead. Now instead of seeing a list of recent incoming links, it seems to be more of a list of your recent posts. What’s with that? I hope they patch it soon.
Here’s an example:
- The new “Incoming Links.”
- The old “Incoming Links.”
What was the reason behind this change (could it be loading speed?), and why didn’t they notice the bug I just discovered?
