    hello,

    just wondering,

    my link is currently on a site with links to pregnancy links. My link is not relevant to pregnancy niche at all.

    Is this bad for SEO?

    If the links are not spammed then it will carry weight.

    Relevance is not important in my experience, I've ranked lots of sites and never try to target my link building to match the theme of my site.

    No shit?? What experience? Never had a single problem with this type of links...what matters most is link velocity not link vicinity.

    Same with almost all of my 15 websites (each on completely different niches.)

    and just like somebody else had mentioned in this thread, if you're backlinking on a page that was spammed with backlinks, it either will only count very little, or not at all. It will not negatively effect you. If it did negatively effect you, it would be EXTREMELY abused and sabotaged.

    The more links there are on a page where your link is, the less it carries weight. Also, if there's 100's of links on the page, it is seen as a spammy page, no juice for you then

    Higher OBL's on a page, carry lesser weight. Relevance sometimes is important but won't hurt.
