    Do you think is it bad for website's reputation if I have one link which leads to deindexed website?

    I have few penalized single niche sites and now I have new multi-niche website from where I would make posts for each niche. So is it bad if I add 1 external link per post which leads to deindexed (penalized) site?

    What if I make it "nofollow", or both ways are bad?

    If someone has experience please help. I was searching everywhere but can't find a proper answer.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    What is that mate? You mean URL shortener like bit.ly ? I think it's same as adding normal link since Google follows links to final destination. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Shouldn't be a problem at all. Even huge sites have links to hundreds, if not thousands of penalized sites and it's really no issue. You won't get penalized for that. If you approach this naturally - you are basically linking to some bad bad webmaster who was soooo nasty that he did some black hat SEO (uuuuu) and got hit. You are not in control and with huge sites, not that you can check hundreds of links daily whether or not they lead to penalized websites. No need to be paranoid at all.
