Do links only count for Page Rank after a link Update?
When will Page Rank go up?

Say if you increased your receiprocal link after google update , will that effect immediately or we need to wait upto next google update?

You would need to wait until the next PR update. It just updated (over the weekend as far as I know) so you may be waiting 3-6 weeks until the next one. Or it may be tomorrow, you never know with Google.

Yep, edit_g's right. You'll have to play the waiting game for you PR to update. But in the meantime, don't forget the traffic that should be coming through those links you've gotten :) Lots of people overlook this important source of traffic in their hunt for PR.

The PR in the toolbar yes. Don't worry about the toolbar it really is meaningless. If you have a link with anchor text in it you may see results as early as 2 days. What you watch is your ranking not the toolbar. You can get 100 links from PR2's and if they all have good anchor text you will see a big difference real quick.

Just of interest

A few test sites with only one backlink, and steady PR for 6 months. Have added a load more non reciprocal backlinks, that now show, and PR has gone down in the last 24 hours.

Links before/links now/PR before/PR after


Am not a follower of PR, but am a trifle surprised.

More Traffic Please

As has been mentioned, the Toolbar PR could update in a week or two, or it could be six weeks.

I have seen strong evidence in the past of many sites getting a link from a high PR page and then within a matter of days moving up dramatically in the SERP's. The link contained no keyword text, the only difference was a link from a PR7 page to a page that had maybe a PR 2-3. When the toolbar PR updated, the previous PR 2-3 pages moved up to PR 5, but their position in the SERP's stayed where they were after the initial jump up.

I'm not sure if this is still the case today.

I have to say SERPs is updated all the time regardless of the update of PR on toolbar, so if you have increased your PR it affects the SERPs almost immdediately. The updates or backlinks/PR on toolbar has nothing to do with the SERPs which is updating continously.

Internal PR and SERPs is updating daily while visible toolbar PR is updated within 2 weeks or 3 months.

We have had a few link updates and pr udpates. I can't remember the last time we had major difference in serps.

One of my site got kicked out of google and then re-included again, i have been waiting at least 3 months for it to be in google again with good placements but nothing has happened. Still the site is nowhere. The site has had a pr5 for the past 2 months

My other site just floats from 9 and 10 in the serps, if i'm lucky i get to 8. But no major difference. Is google sticking with this algo for the long future. I think the last update was brandy (i think).

Is it conituing updates from now one, if it is i can't really see any changes. I have heard somewhere that google will do updates on a 3month basis. I hope this is incorrect.

Could anyone shed some light in this matter

The usual:

Page with your link is indexed, after 2-3 days you'll get whatever benefit you're going to get as far as SERPs are concerned. If the data used for the next PR update is taken from this day forward then you'll see the PR from this link at that update.

If the site isn't high PR don't expect much jump either way (SERPs or PR) unless your term is obscure or your not listed at all previously.

I have another question related to this. Is this reciprocal link logic is applied to the entire domain or page by page cases.
