I've been doing link development for a site. I managed to get a number of link backs (PR2/3) however when i go link:http://www.domain.com nothing comes out! And the site still has PR0 after the recent update.
What might be the reason for this?
I would really appreciatŐ if someone shed some light on this.

From my experience Google will only show the backlink on a search If that page your link is on has a page Rank of at least 4. It sometimes take a few weeks / months for you to get a decent page rank, depending on your content etc....
Best to wait two months before they show up in Yahoo, Google, or anywhere else. As long as someone is linking to you, move on and cultivate the next crop of links. It can drive you crazy checking the backlink counts. Myself, I never do. There's too much work to do to spend my time worrying about backlink counts.
And if that weren't enough to drive you nuts, Google has just changed the way they display backlinks. See this thread: [webmasterworld.com...]
