    Hi.

    Bit of a beginner with webmaster tools.

    I built a few links a couple of weeks back and they are now showing in Google Webmaster Tools.

    My question is : When the links are showing in Tools, should serp movement have already taken place, or is it just letting you know the links have been found and movement (if any) will happen soon? :)

    Cheers

    It's just telling you the number of links you have and have nothing to do with showing your present ranking.

    Use tools like Rank Tracker to check your ranking though it's not 100% accurate.
