Problem using rsync for backups: link-dest


I'm trying to learn to use rsync to make incremental backups.
I tried to do this in a practice and have problems:

I have a couple of files in a directory: prac.
I ran the following commands:
Code:
cp -ar prac prac2.
rsync -avh --link-dest=prac2 prac/ prac3/
I then made changes to the files in prac2, but the changes weren't applied
to the files in prac3.
From what I've studied --link-dest should hard link the files in prac2 and prac3 together.
All these files are in my home directory.

Thanks.
