Generally accepted info around is that the two are not tied. Rankings apparently are updated on a continuous basis, not a discrete '9:00 Tuesday' type of schedule anymore.
As for links taking effect, again it's generally accepted that links gain more traction the older they are. So get 100 links and expect little to no change for some indefinite period of time.
I could be wrong though :).

So your saying that you can move up from page 3 to 1 without having your site re-cached...(assuming u have the link juice) by re-cached I mean when you click to see the cached result and it gives you a date.
I usually only see movement when the cache date is updated, otherwise my rankings are stagnant aside from when sites around me are being cached before mine then obviously my position moves up or down depending on how they are moving in the results.
It shows that the two are connected, at least from my experience, but I would definitely like to know if I am wrong on this.

I'm just going through the process of obtaining links for a relatively new site and am monitoring the site's progress on a regular basis... it seems as if its position is fairly consistent throughout any particular day, but small incremental steps are made from one day to the next.

Well, I don't follow this so I don't speak authoritatively. But I believe Google has already said that they do updates on an ongoing basis now.

That's my understanding, also. New data is continuously/periodically being fed into the system.

What i believe is that Crawling a website and detecting a link are both different procedures.
As you get a link back, Google updates its data and changes the ranking if a site deserves it, according to its algo.

I'd say the cache date of the site(s) linking to the original site would be of more significance. Google isn't going to know about inbound links until they crawl/cache the sites providing those inbounds.
Sites having more "juice" will probably be crawled on a more frequent basis which means the inbound links will be found and considered in the ranking process sooner. Sites without as much presence won't get crawled as frequently, thus their links won't have immediate impact.
That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
