Having gone through these links, it seems as though many blogs are pointing
at that site. I haven't descended to these blogs and ensured there was no
mistake, but it sure seems like good accumulation of IBL's from genuine
blogrolls (not only blogs nonetheless).
Be aware that public display of backlinks in Google gets updated once in
about 40-50 days, so the overnight changes is not out of the blue. 0 -> 8000
hump, however, would raise some red alarms at the Google headquarters. I
would not worry...
I hope this post was not an obscure type of self-promotion...
