So let's say you've been on a link building spree for the past few months and over that time and even including today and yesterday, you've managed to land some really good natural links. It's been almost 3 full months that you've been consistently gaining high quality backlinks from extremely related sources to inner pages.
In my case, I've been in constant contact with industry leaders and official sites of many companies and have been given dozens of backlinks anywhere from PR3 (let's say 15), PR4 (around 10), PR5 (around 10), PR6 (5 of them) and PR7 (3 as of today). Some of these are site-wide links for some reason (so add another handful of PR4-PR5 links). These are almost all exclusively links to inner pages with anchor text either exclusively my brand name or text like "review from brand".*
I know the link selling business loves throwing around the '3 months' term, but in my experience, this isn't really true.
How long does it take for these links to actually become effective on gaining some more authority and thus higher ranking?
* A special thank you to wheel. Your posts on this forum are invaluable in getting my brain working on my own creative ways of doing link building the old fashioned way.
