A few test sites with only one backlink, and steady PR for 6 months. Have added a load more non reciprocal backlinks, that now show, and PR has gone down in the last 24 hours.
Links before/links now/PR before/PR after
Am not a follower of PR, but am a trifle surprised.
Say if you increased your receiprocal link after google update , will that effect immediately or we need to wait upto next google update?
As has been mentioned, the Toolbar PR could update in a week or two, or it could be six weeks.
I have seen strong evidence in the past of many sites getting a link from a high PR page and then within a matter of days moving up dramatically in the SERP's. The link contained no keyword text, the only difference was a link from a PR7 page to a page that had maybe a PR 2-3. When the toolbar PR updated, the previous PR 2-3 pages moved up to PR 5, but their position in the SERP's stayed where they were after the initial jump up.
I'm not sure if this is still the case today.
Internal PR and SERPs is updating daily while visible toolbar PR is updated within 2 weeks or 3 months.
One of my site got kicked out of google and then re-included again, i have been waiting at least 3 months for it to be in google again with good placements but nothing has happened. Still the site is nowhere. The site has had a pr5 for the past 2 months
My other site just floats from 9 and 10 in the serps, if i'm lucky i get to 8. But no major difference. Is google sticking with this algo for the long future. I think the last update was brandy (i think).
Is it conituing updates from now one, if it is i can't really see any changes. I have heard somewhere that google will do updates on a 3month basis. I hope this is incorrect.
Could anyone shed some light in this matter
Page with your link is indexed, after 2-3 days you'll get whatever benefit you're going to get as far as SERPs are concerned. If the data used for the next PR update is taken from this day forward then you'll see the PR from this link at that update.
If the site isn't high PR don't expect much jump either way (SERPs or PR) unless your term is obscure or your not listed at all previously.
