I have a website: www.example.com
In this site I have a page: www.example.com/page.html
I get a backlink from another site to page.html. Let's call the "another site" www.linking-partner.com.
Assume no hanky pankies, no link farms, no bad neighborhoods.
In your experience, how long before the following query in Google shows linking-partner.com in the SERPs?
Question is specifically for Google and not Yahoo.
Generally speaking, how long does it take for Google to recognize a backlink to a specific page? I'm assuming that as soon as the back link is "noted" somehow in Google, it appears in the "link:" query. This assumption could be false.
