Whenever I want to audit a site's traffic I use alexa.com/siteinfo/domain.com
In the end of the page, Alexa also shows number of backlinks and 5 backlink sources.
It usually happens with me that Alexa shows very less number of backlinks and does not update that data.
My personal website has more than 100 backlinks (seen in SEMrush and Ahre) but Alexa is showing only 7 since last six months.
Has Alexa stopped updating the backlink data for free users?

Of course not. If you build new powerful Do-Follow backlinks, then Alexa will update the backlinks data.

The more Do-Follow backlinks you'll build, the more sites linking Alexa will exhibit.

But unlike other backlinks checker tools,  Alex doesn't show all No-Follow and Do-Follow links.
