I just set up an account to link to (about a 1000) other site. It is mostly irrelevant content. Some people say it is a problem linking to irrelevant content some people say it doesn't matter and that it is just a moral/ethical/fairness issue. Kinda like, you are a cheater, I hope you can live with yourself.

But anyways, I am wondering how long it will take before the linking takes effect? Should I set myself up with another linking company? If so which ones would you guys recommend?

Anyone have good success stories with linking? Anyone have some negative feedback on linking?

Linking to them is not really going to help you a whole lot. You need to have other sites with high PR that are relevant to your business to link to you.

To answer your question - it normally take a few months to see the changes or whenever the next google update is.

Jess has a page set up for placing bets on when this is happening:

I believe that currently a link is a link is a link, but in the future relevant links will have the most importance and irrelevant link's importance will be greatly reduced.

With my clients, I try to only find relevant links with a decent Pagerank and or a DMOZ listing.

As for the backlink/Pagerank update, you'll just have to wait as the next update will most likely be near the end of the year.

Thanks for the response.

I have tons of irrelevant links, but I will try to focus on more relevant ones. But I am going to wait till after the next google update.

in the meantime, I am going to post links and set up affiliates when ever possible!

And it looks like I have to move fast to catch the next update :)

I did see the betting today., I am thinking of a more obsucre date for the google update like Jan 3, 7, 21st ...hell I'll go and post my bet now :)

No reason to wait till after the next update for getting relevant links. If your looking for a few quick relevant links, try link partners, most of them are pretty poor, but you can find related sites and once in awhile you find a really good one.
