Today, I was cleaning my linking profile and noticed in Google Webmaster Tools that it was showing yellowpages had 1568 backlinks to my site. What in the world ? Can this be right ? This can't be good correct?

yellowpages.com generates a ton of their own search results for Google to index. So your business is showing up for that many search results. They're not unique links, they're just links from your profile being shown in search results.

Hope that helps!
