Hi Guys & Girls,

I'm taking the plunge and making my first post to the group after being an
avid reader for a few months.

I need some info/feedback on PR and backlinks. I've been doing some SEO for
the site and I have submitted to some
guestbooks and got some recipricol links happening however none of them
appear in google when you do ""

Doing search using "" pulls up a heap of link though.

Its seems weird that the page has no backlinks or pagerank but still is #2
for the term "tax free cigs" , even though no work has been done to optimize
the site for this.

Has anyone got any pearls of wisdom that could help? The main terms I'm
working on are "cigarettes" and "discount cigarettes"


PS: The site is relatively new and has only been alive for about 3 months,
the last 6 weeks of which have been spent doing SEO on it. Maybe its just a
time thing ;)

Re: PR & Backlinks @ google

You are correct.  It takes some time for google to update their
backlinks database.  If both sites are indexed in google, your links
should show soon.  If you have been reading, I have said this a few
times; for new site owners, it is critical to focus on your customers,
who are they? what they like? what they don't like? how quick and easy
can they get to your information and can they understand it once they
find it?

Good Luck!!

I haven't seen a link update since the beginning of January.

Google appears to have put this on hold while they get their ALGO straight.
