I bought 15 BTC but after 2 days I see nothing. What is wrong?
This is the transaction. http://blockexplorer.com/a/4CkCXPJxFa

Also, I went to freebitcoins.appspot.com, since they claim thay they give for free 0.005 bitcoins per visitor. I did everything correct and the site said that I could see the transaction at freebitcoins.appspot.com/recent_sends.

But when I clicked on my transaction, it said: No such transaction

Please guys tell me what is wrong?

You bought 15 bitcoins where? Who sold you? And the first link you posted is an address, not a transaction.

Sorry, not 15 but 1.25 bitcoins. I bought them from a site.
I was reading that you can see the transactions at blockexplorer.com.
So, I went there and searched for my Bitcoin address.
And this is what I got. http://blockexplorer.com/a/4CkCXPJxFa

Is this the transaction?
http://blockexplorer.com/t/66iZ76kSxv

So, is something wrong or I have to wait?
If I have to wait, how much? Days, weeks...?

The transaction is included in a block, so 1.25 BTC was already received by address 18hqjRTMqACUhmTRtjNuGpg4B7J2VgU9s7. Are you sure:

1. that this is indeed your address ?
2. that your Bitcoin client completed the download of all the blocks (154755 as I write this) ?

Finally I got them. I had to wait to download all the blocks.
