You need to look at the situation from Google's perspective. They have been taking advantage of by those who were trying to artificially improve rankings from 1 strong link.
You will see a benefit from this, but it may take some time. Google may place a certain time factor on new links. They look at the entire link picture and not just 1 link. It is the link portfolio that Google cares about.
I agree with maximillianos that you need to look at the entire picture.
So there will be benefits from this, but they may take some time to be realized. So keep looking for high quality links and you will see good things happen.
