Hey BHW, I've been link building for quite a while, and have really no trouble getting backlinks to either of the websites in question, however, I would like to know what your opinions are on the topic. I have a Hentai website (Japanese animated pornography - Google it), receiving around 40,000-60,000 unique views per day, and an Anime website (Japanese animated cartoons), receiving around 18,000-20,000 unique views per day. They both have sites they're affiliated with, both have a pretty good link profile, and they're both over a year old. In your opinion, would it be safe to link the 2 together? They're hosted on completely different hosts, so the 2 websites having the same IP isn't a problem; the problem is just whether or not the backlinks from either site would damage the other. They would be site-wide links, placed in the navigation menu of the site. If it would damage the site, then what would you suggest to link the 2? I was thinking about N0F0ll0wing the links, however I have other websites that are linked that way, and the links are still counted in Google WMT. Would a URL shortener do the trick? Regards, ~ver.
