deanril, Google doesn't take links into account within the database that fast. Freshbot and link credits are a part of different processes that occur at different time intervals. There is no connection between the two,
I tried explaining this to a client today in an un-Florida related matter. The work I had provided for her last year provided unexpectedly quik results which were accented by Yahoo's simultaneous switch to Google. She expected the same thing regardless of prior consultations explaining thats not how it works.
Of course I also had to explain to her why her wedding business (not one I had worked on), as well as 90% of the rest of the local wedding businesses were removed from the results because they weren't relevant any more for local wedding business searches. The last thing she said was "This can't be good for the searcher can it?" I said "Noo, that's why i think it will change"
