According to my own experience non-themed incoming links with high pagerank DO HELP a website a lot without doing any harm. I have several websites that their PR is based mainly on this kind of incoming links and they all enjoy high positions in search engines.
Just my 2 cents.
All the incoming links are 100% themed to my content. Having same phrase for all incoming links will be of any help?
Should i keep changing these phrases for newer incoming links?
Text of the link (it is oftenly called "anchor text") increases the possibility of finding your site for "anchor text" search phrase. So, you should decide whether it is necessary to change the text in your link-building campaign or keep it the same accordingly to searchphrase targeting of your site.
Regarding Link development, you won't get any one way links, unless you are offering them something in return.
The best thing for link development is either go for reciprocal link exchange or pay more to get quality links back (no bulk link services please)
I am asking this because those websites have more than 800 pages combined and yahoo shows that in their count while google doesnot. Maybe becuase their servers are not updated yet. The links were placed just last month.
I am seeing on thing though, Yahoo is fast in indexing the content while google takes some time.
That would be rediculous... since they certainly aren't going to write alot of copy about how great your products are and then link to you too..
Of course not. Marissa Mayer said, two or three years ago at an SES session, that they were discounting the value of the PR passed by irrelevant context. She didn't say they were penalizing the receiver of the PR, only that it wasn't passing as much as it otherwise would.
This went over a lot of people's heads as no one asked her about it in the Q & A. So I asked her about it, giving her the example of a web design company link on a university department website. She challenged what relevance a university department had to a web design business, and said that it was entirely fair to devalue the power of that link.
I reported that on WebmasterWorld a few days later. You can take it or leave it- I have no inside knowledge of what goes on inside the plex in this regard (although if I did I probably would have had to sign an NDA :P)

If you focus on cultivating links that make good sense to human users (and that can cover a lot of ground), relevance for the search engines will take care of itself.
That said, if there's a link to be had on the cheap, I'm interested. I just follow a simple rule. The more money/work something is, the more relevant it needs to be.
I think the worst that will happen one day is Google and others will make non-relevant links count for little or nothing. I doubt they will ever penalize, because it will be too easy to bring down competitive sites that way.
If someone in Japan links to you because he thinks your site is cool, how are the engines going to know what is relevant and not in Japanese
Get a bunch of categories and assign a website one or more categories. They have travel, web design, insurance, ... in Japan as well, I guess.
Now compare the categories you assigned the two websites (or even single pages) - and you're done. No big deal, I'd say.
