    As the title says,
    Is it risky putting all my sites in webmaster tools on the same account? I would think it would be but im not sure and figure I should ask here. Some of these sites are linking among each other would those links not count because of this?

    thanks.

    You are setting a footprint to Google If you are adding multiple sites that link with each other.

    Good idea is to stay out of webmaster tools since you are risking getting penalties or other consequences.

    No harm done. I have at least 6 sites in the same Webmaster tools and nothing was ever the matter with me.

    was mostly worried if interlinking would be devalued

    I'd have seperate accounts for each site. It doesn't take long to set up and it doesn't leave a footprint as such.

    It's better to be safe then sorry.

    I suggest you to not use webmaster tools (or any other google tool like analytics) on any blackhat site. Why helping google to catch us?

    I prefer to not add my sites to the google webmaster tool unless i absolutely have to. No point letting them know your entire network and how you interlink between the sites.

    for the same reasons that youre concerned about, i use

    Code:
    http://getclicky.com

    which has excellent analytics and is FREE for upto 3k impressions PER DAY - i.e for 90k visitors per month. if you need to upgrade from there, the costs are very reasonable and easily affordable.

    stops google in its tracks and provides you with everything you need as an alternative.

    I have all of my sites under the same analytics/webmaster account.

    They're all independent of each other though, not interlinked. I have never witnessed anything that spread over all of the accounts. That being said, I think it'd be a careless error to keep interlinked sites in the same G webmaster account. Better safe than sorry, especially if you're doing anything risky to rank.
