If you can't find yourself being linked to from your articles, my first tip is... wait. It's possible that your article HAS been picked up, but the sites using it haven't been spidered yet. Similar deal with watching your PR. Google only updates PR about four times per year, which means you might be waiting three months or so.
I'm assuming you've already been spidered by Google... if you haven't, try submitting a press release to PRWeb. If you write a good one it'll be picked up by Yahoo News and other sites that get spidered daily, so you should be picked up within 7 days.
And remember, PR isn't everything! And it's certainly nothing to get disheartened about. Affilorama has a PR of 1, and you don't see us crying into our chocolate milk :)
ps If you are not already indexed in google, you can also get spidered quickly by using ineedhits.com g-boost, only $19.95 and you get indexed within 7 days.
