    How often do the SERPs update


    For many months I have been building good links back to my site (currently about 300 links in although google are showing many internal links so they have me at 1100). I have seen a slow increase in the SERP for a particular keyword from about 60th to 25th. My question is regarding a more dramatic change. I have checked out my competition and I now have more links in that most of the top 10 and was wondering why my site is still lower than those with fewer links in.

    Also, before the florida update, I was receiving thousands of visitors from many of the thousands of internal pages which I believe I got because at that time google was couting internal links. If I do manage to get to the top again will my internal pages increase again, or do you think that google now required links in for each page to count.

    I believe google updates their public backlink info every month. Although i'm sure they place it into the actual rank before that.

    Is a backward link update supposed to show an immediate difference on the SERP? The reason I say this is because when the last BL update happened (the one before this one) my BLs were only about 25, on this update they are 300 however I see no dramatic change and show most competitors in the same positions also.

    SERP update more frequently, almost changes are daily, back link less frequently, PR (toolbar) more less frequently.

    I guess my question is What affect does the BL update have on the SERPs and when does that show, immediately, or is there a more major update of the SERPs that happens to the this.

    Pros - correct me if I am wrong. Higher amount of BL - higher is your SERP. Now if you have too many BL from ridiculous sites then you might have a problem, could be considered as spam. I have bought only 2 BL and my SERP got a little boost. I will be buying a lot more soon but waiting for the PR to happen, want to know what PR I get and then will buy BLs accordingly.
