    How long do you see the effect of the links on SERP?

    I would like to know how long you see SERP changes after you put a quality link, ie a link from PR2, PR3 or higher.

    I'm seeing changes in about 2 weeks. You?

    I do not keep track of such stuff.
    I keep track of my posts on my blogs.
    To see where they show up.

    Again, why obsess about what a page rank site will do for your site?

    Would certainly their internal links ...

    Leaves a page without updating and without building links and their positions will fall or at best will be kept in the same position, but did not increase.

    I'm interested to not continue to build links to keywords that are already occupied the first position.

    Quality isn't based on the PR in the toolbar. Besides, PR - the PR value that is exported to the toolbar, hasn't been updated to the toolbar since last April 1, 2010. You really can't base quality on that!

    I haven't timed it. But it's taking a matter of hours.

    I did some link building last night and the site moved from #14 to #12 within an hour from 5 blog posts and a post on a free blog that was bookmarked to 10 social sites.

    Last google page rank update was April 2nd. 2010.

    When the next one comes?
    Only google knows if there will be an update and the exact date.

    Now, like bogart said, if you continue posting and putting some decent content on, you will for some keywords and keyword phrases start to rank up there.

    I do know that just because you have x amount of links from x amount of pr sites does not mean you will move up in serp's.

    Just look sometimes at the search results and you will see more sites with little to no page rank outdo high page rank sites in the search results.
    Same with backlinks, you will see a lot of sites with few backlinks compared to other sites and ranking higher than those sites.

    Hard for a lot of webmasters to grasp, but page rank is a whole different ball game from ranking in search results.

    I would rather rank high in search results than have page rank or links from page ranked sites.

    I don't know, but often I feel like it's either forever or never.
    I'm sure it depends on many factors, like how competitive the term is, and how trusted the domain that it is linking to is, and what type of link it is...
    Probably for some terms it would be immediate, and for some terms it might be months or years...

    There's other factors in addition to links that effect the rankings. Also consider that the sites with the most stable rankings usually have quality backlinks that are harder to come by.

    I don't tend to search on my own search terms much since I fear about alerting SE's to me being concerned with SEO. But I think the effects are quick unless you have strong competition or did something wrong.

    Spiders visit very regularly, so why would they do that if the SE is going to take ages to update positions?
