    It depends on each backlink, the site authority, is the link do-follow or no-follow, is it indexable, Google crawl rate for the site backlink is on, relevancy, site age, etc.

    Relevant backlinks from high DA sites take several weeks to make an impact. If your website is new, then you won't see improvements in SERP's for many months.

    Somewhere between right away and never. It depends on the quality of the link and when Google discovers it.

    This is wrong. DA has absolutely nothing to do with Google or how long it would take a link to have an impact. No search engine on the planet looks at DA.

    This is an approximate indicator. I didn't say search engines look at it.
    The user looks at DA to estimate the potential strength of the backlink.

    Using DA to estimate the potential strength of a link is an absolutely terrible idea. It has nothing to do with the strength of a link.

    Besides the fact that Moz's metrics are horribly inaccurate, DA tells you nothing about the page where your link is on. If you wanted to estimate the strength of a link and you are going to use Moz's garbage metrics to do it, PA is the one you should be looking at. Still a stupid idea, but that is the one you should be concerned with.

    I agreed with @msulcs, It depends on each backlink, the site authority. Sometimes Google index webpage or link very quickly & sometimes it takes long time to index and as a webpage or link get indexed it give effect.

    Agreed.

    It is right that DA has absolutely nothing to do with Google ranking, But I experienced these things are considered in ranking factor from backlinks.

    In my practice 1 month is a best period to see real effect from built links.

    You can not fix this because it depends on how long Google will crawl a web page and update links or backlinks on it.

    It totally depends upon on you. It also depends which method do you create your backlinks and how much impact on it by google.

    Link building is one big waiting game, but the quality of your content or services is what will sustain you in the long run.Focus on quality, and the links will come more easily.
    And there is no exact answer how long it will take to get a result,as for every SEO campaign the results are different.There is sometimes an effect within a couple of days or a week, or no effect at all - especially for the more competitive keywords.
    It also depends on your link building strategy and the type of links,that you are building.
    Yes, I have several backlinks.
    And If Google believes that the information on that website is fresh and up to date and is important to people then it will be crawling that website pretty fast.

    Depends on the back links, if they are cheap automated spam links, then likely never.
    If the back links have been “earned” via content promotion or guest blogging then I would hazard a guess at around 7–10 days.
    The rate at which back links are indexed also depends on your own website, if it’s an old established site, then links can get indexed quicker otherwise wait it out.

    Your own site has absolutely nothing to do with how fast links pointing at it get indexed.

    As per my experience, it depends on those backlinking sites. If a site is so much familiar or popular on the web, and if you get a backlink from that site, then Google will update your backlink profile quickly with that new link. Like if you get a backlink from medium or scoop.it or quora then your backlink will add to your website backlink profile asap. If you get a backlink from a directory or social bookmark site that rarely get hits, then there's less or no possibility to update by Google.

    Might be 1-2 months or much more. If it carry quality then may be less time and obviously follow google terms.

    It depends on each back-link, the site authority, is the link do-follow or no-follow, is it index-able, Google crawl rate for the site back-link is on, relevancy, site age, etc. Try popular site for back-linking you earn good back-link.

    Firstly it depends upon whether the link you have generated is DO Follow or NO Follow, if it is a No follow link then it hardly gonna matter but if it is a Do follow link, then other metrics will come into play, which is- how often thus the website gets crawled by Google itself, if it is crawled on almost regular basis, then within a few days, backlink will start showing its effect or else it will vary on the basis of how often Google crawl that particular website.

    It really depends on the type of link. If it is highly relevant and has tremendous authority it can be quick. Google crawl discussion websites more frequently for example due to regular contents update. Therefore, if you place a link to your website in one of your replies it will be registered during that crawl.

    One thing is site's authority. Good authority site's links are make impact in a short time. More than that if your content is well & good, it will reach users. If users like the content & will get crawled easily.
