I'm working like crazy adding links and just wanted to know when I should se some impact from the work done?

I know that theoreticaly the update is now rolling, so should I expect to see small increases as each link is crawled

More Traffic Please

It's been my experience that Google will adjust a sites PageRank very soon after finding a new link to it. Also IMO they do a rough estimate of the additional PR transfered to your page by the new link and then once every 4-6 weeks will do a more accurate adjustment of PR once they go through the complicated iteration process of figuring exact PageRank. This is when we get to see the new backlinks and Toolbar PR. As far as anchor text gores, I don't really know if they take that into account on the fly or if that is figured in when they update PR and backlinks. One clue may be that when Google does start showing new PR and backlinks, the serps don't seem to change much (at least over the last couple of months this has been the case). That might indicate that anchor text is being taken into account on the fly.

Updates in the serps happen about 72 hours after a change is implemented. But this does not show in the toolbar or in the backlinks, until a the major chnages happen.

That depends on the PR of the page.

I've heard lots of talk about fresh tags but can't seem to find them. It would be good to see if particular links have been crawled by Google.

The only other way I can see of doing this is to look at the cache of a page that I've got a link to.

To the original poster, my guess is at minimum a few weeks, and at max a few months.

Bring back the monthly update! At least you knew where you were up to then :-)

This particular update (or lack thereof), is S-L-O-W. I wouldn't worry about your work not yielding results (yet). But, I do certainly expect to see something happen soon. Like watching paint dry right now.

This is a very complex question. It depends on how often the linking pages are crawled, then on how long Google takes to "think" about the new link and then on when the new "thinking" is reflected in the SERPs.

If you're dealing with low PR sites (5 or lower in average) I would estimate at least 4 weeks, otherwise you could become very unhappy, symptoms could be high blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision), headache, tremor, nervousness, or anxiety.

It looks like I'm in for a painful time then, the majority are 5,4 or 3 although there are a few 7's

Let the sleepness nights and continuous visits to WW continue then

None for me (on any datacenter)
What movement did you see?

SERPs, backlinks, PR?

In the meantime, you can always get some more links, preferrably from locations that also send traffic, not only PR :) Just to make sure that Googlebot WILL see you eventually.

As read in another forum, it also might help to sacrifice a virgin...

There doesn't seem be any movement for me, so I'd better look for a virgin. Do they still auction them at ebay?

I thought getting a link from a PR10 to a site selling stuff for making certain body parts longer would be easier than to find a virgin :)
