    Hello, I have social media sites and health sites. I wonder if I have a backlink in an adult site. What will be the effect in SEO? Moreover, what if my competitor is the one building links in an adult site? Will this cause trouble?

    Having your website on PR N/A overall doesn't help much so I'm guessing that page wouldn't help much either unless it had some PR.

    Google pretty much ignores these backlinks...

    I've run a number of tests of spamming the living crap out of the test site with adult/pharma and similar keywords... The results... The site moved up in ranking for all of it's keywords!

    I thought this was weird. I ran the test on several other domains and the same thing happened!!!

    I did however find that this mainly applies to authority sites, small sites it tends to negatively effect.

    Well, do you think if someone backlink my site (competitor) in adult site, will have a negative impact on my SERPS?

    No it will boost your overall ranking, any oneway backlink is better than no link.

    so basically, G will just ignore the niche of the site as long as you're building a link?

    we don't know how Google works 100%, but after seeing how bad the "Spam Gone Wild" service has been going, I think low quality is on its way out if it's done on epic proportions. One link shouldn't have much effect.
