KC also instructs to 'ping' these links with ping-o-matic.com, which I have done.
When I check to see if the links are in place by returning to the URL at which they appear, they are still there. These are 'member home page' urls within forums.
However I see no signs of these new backlinks when I look for them with Market Samurai's backlink tool or Yahoo's link:http://www.examplesite.com tool.
By contrast, when I have created backlinks by standard blog commenting, it has not taken long for the results to show up on the MS tool.
I contacted KC about this and he told me to be patient, which I am trying to be, but I would like to know if anyone else has tried this approach to backlink creation and what their results have been. What PR links did you obtain and how long did it take before they appeared?
