    Is Sitewide linking Beneficial? Will it get a site banned?.

    Please open toyotanation.com and scroll down to see the footer links .toyotanation is a part of gigantic automotive forums .. each page on all sites on the network are interlinked with other sites on the network ... resulting each sites in the network to have >32 million backlinks just from interlinking.

    Why don't Google penalize such massive site interlinking?

    Is sitewide linking have great effect on rankings? All sites in the network rank extremely well

    While you will not receive a penalty for site wide links the benefit from having a huge number of links coming from one site are minimal. Each link you get from a site is going to be progressively worth less than the one before it so having having hundreds of links from one site is really not much different than having just a few links from a site.

    Not sure why you think Google should penalize the forums. Linking a bunch of auto related forums together makes sense.

    I got in trouble for this on one of my sites. I would suggest that no more than 10% of your links should be from site-wide or homepage sources.

    Agreed. Problem is all links (32 M of them) only have 1 anchor text variation ........... shouldnt it be diversified?
