    Hey,
    I have a question regarding 'hidden' links.
    Which website is penalised for a hidden link, is it the one that is hosting the link or the one that it points too?

    You have to explain what you mean by hidden link.
    Do you mean sql injection
    or by css
    or by color coding
    or etc.

    Oh sorry, well yes either color so that it blends with the background or where the font size is at 10% so a human won't actually spot it.

    LOL those things do not really matter anymore. I do not believe any site will be penalized as long as the page does not have a lot of outbound links. That technique is like 1997.

    the site that is hosting the link: definitely.
    the site that link points to: maybe. probably not.

    I think it depends on the situation: two common situations: 1/ site hosting link and has many hidden outbounds will get penalized 2/ Site link is pointing to has many hidden inbound links gets penalized

    In order to determine the facts, one would have to perform seo experiments .... but i think its really just a numbers game.... too many of any will get you penalized... so this leaves us with the question of, how many is too many?
