    I know there is a concern of having too many spammy links on a single page but I dont think this is the case here. I am building web 2.0 sites to link to my money site and I am using their web building platforms so my question is. Would it be ok to have menu items on my web 2.0 site to link to my money site? For example if they clicked "About us" on my tripod or wordpress site and it linked to the about us page on my money site, would that be ok?

    You could do that but a contextual link is better.

    Ok thanks, are images considered links too? Like if I hyperlinked the picture to my homepage and then used a contexual link to the same page, I suppose that would not be good? I am sorry for the questions. I am a little new but am learning from this great site. :)

    I guess it would be "ok" if you dont do it aggressively, just 1-2 I mean it, anyway, contextual is always the best, so dont forget you can leave a paragraph like : if you want to read more info, please visit my main site about us page" bla bla bla bla, both should be work, just "I thinkā€

    Good luck.

    Yes image links are links but not as good as a contextual link.

    It's not the worst thing you can do, but you need to think how many pages does this "site" have and how many times is the link going to show. Not many people use these links, there is a reason for it. Just make sure you don't put your link in the "footer" section. A lot of sites got penalized for that. Webmasters were doing it on sites they created hoping for the link juice.

    Just imagine looking at WMT and seeing 100's of links from the same site and it's because of that damn footer. If your going to put it on the menu id make sure it was "no follow" to not come across as your trying to spam links. This is why people create articles and drop links where appropriate. It's the normal way to do it.
