When I look at the "Top Linking Sites" tab on the new Google Search Console I see I have 1800 plus linking sites. I immediately thought that was great because everyone says back links are great....right.
However - when I try to find these sites they are non-existent, examples;-
When you check to see what is being linked, this shows.
All linking to genuine pages but the source is not genuine.
What the hell is going on. More importantly - what is the effect on my Google position??
What can be done about it?
