Link History

 5:59 pm on Feb 10, 2010 (gmt 0)

A personal website of mine had received a few really good one-way links from government websites, but only for a short period of time--kind of like seasonal references and when the season was over the links were removed.

The links were so good that rankings for pages the links pointed to went from no where to first page within a couple of days.

Thing is, the links have been removed but the pages still rank super well, not quite as well as before but still darn well.

Makes me think that Google remembers links and gives ongoing credit for them.

On the acquiring side, can take awhile before links are fully acknowledged, aside from the initial boost. Interesting situation you're in. Has it been three months yet?

The links were given to me early December 09 and removed about a month ago, maybe a bit later.

What's three months significant for?

I sometimes see a bit of bouncing around until about the three month point where the rankings tend to settle down into their true position.
