    So i was just wondering.. does google penalize sites with high number of backlinks and less referring domains? my current numbers are 76 backlinks to 20 Referring domains.. is that ok or will it get google on alert?

    Never, unless you use some software or buy fiverr links.

    If you build links correctly you will be ok.

    People get multiple links from the same domain all the time but do they get 100 links from one domain? Most of the time no. Just make everything look natural.

    I can't give you a set number tho.

    You are okay now. But if you want to get rid of penalties from Google for unnatural backlinks. Then you should keep a natural ration between the number of backlinks and referring domain.

    I have had sites ranking long time with a RD/BL ratio of 1/50. Look at bestproducts.com, it has that of 1/100 . SO yeah you are good to go.

    Your domain is fine.

    .03 and above is my ideal ratio for RD/External Backlinks. Like for example on your domain, 20 / 76 = 0.26

    The ratio is absolutely fine if not very good. Unless it is a sitewide link, the ratio would be a small multiple of the no. of referring domains. Again, I have had websites with thousands of sidebar links but never had any penalty in those too. If there is a penalty, there is anyways a penalty from what I have noticed. Sidebar links are regarded as less effective but are hardly regarded as links which might result in a penalty. Otherwise, a lot of the top websites from top companies would have been penalized as they mention and link out to their complete portfolio of websites either from the sidebar or the footer.
