The dark blue line on the bottom is Google, the red line is Yahoo and the huge increase shown on the orange line is Bing. Does anyone else wonder why Google only counts 28 backlinks, Yahoo counts 1,647 and Bing counts 5,090?

Could Bing be counting Social Networking activity? What do YOU think?

MazeCore Monitor certainly looks interesting. The free version allows you to track one Web site and three keyword phrases.
