    lets say I have 2 sites, site 1 and site 2.

    I SEO site 1 and get 100 backlinks from 100 different domains. they are all blog comments, I spend a lot of time manually commenting on 1000 blogs and I find 100 blogs where the admins approve the comment. the other 900 dont approve.

    at this point, it would be very easy to seo site 2. all I have to do is scrape those 100 blogs for other pages, and comment again.

    except site 1 and site 2 would have the exact same backlink profile. the exact same domains that link to site 1 link to site 2.

    is this ok or is it going to raise red flags?
    what percentage of 2 sites having the same backlinks is ok?

    Hmm, interesting question. Don't know if anyone has actually looked into this, but my thoughts would be that while it's not ideal, I don't think it would matter. As long as the two sites aren't interlinked (site 1 and 2), you SHOULD be ok. If Google decided to penalise sites that did this, the SERPS would be all over the place. Make an effort to make your back link profiles a bit different if you're overly concerned.

    If the two sites have the same backlink profile, both of them can still rank well. I believe this cannot get your site penalised because it's not common. Yeah, many sites have backlinks from the same sources, but you will scarcely find two sites whose backlink profiles are the same.

    I cant see to there being any issue. If you really must diversify, you could add unique links to each.
