    If you look at the following example you will see that it is part of a catalogue site or library site with multiple pages , one for each set of products with a unique URL /extension.

    Sure I know that each product should have a good URL but if you look bottom right of each page there is some very small KW anchors.

    What this means is that there are more than 1000 BLs pointing from this site to the money site - the money site results in 1st position.

    What they have done is in inadvertently or deliberately got more than 1500 BL just buy adding in association with (LINK) at the very bottom.

    Lets assume you or I have a multi page site with various products on each seperate page... is it then wise to put some anchor links to sites on each footer?

    1 - In association with "money site" but its the same site

    2 - In association with "another money" site.

    Make sense?

    Thoughts? See bottom right.. all links are same company.

    Here are the example links.

    It seems a powerful on page trick no?

    Sitewide footer links on busy Wordpress (or similar) blogs resulting in a backlink for every page/post that's published methinks.

    Made sense to me.

    @OP, it is common belief that the number of links from one site stop having importance after a certain number, however I haven't seen a case study showing the omptimum number.

    I have seen two websites from two different competitors of mine use this technique. One on a web 2.0 type site having the link in blogroll, however the site being ranked was so easy I have no way of telling if this was a factor or not.

    Another for a much harder keyword has done it by popping their image on a new site, and calling that image to the footer of several of their clients ecommerce sites (clients are probably not even aware of it). These links do show up in YSE, and the site is ranked number 1, but again there is no way to prove how relevant that is, apart from a case study.

    All I have learned so far is that there clearly wasn't much of a penatly going on, so I do intent to try this myself.

    I have a powerful PR5 site - each person that sells something on it. like ebay... has a page. I was thinking of adding "in association with" and then :

    1. A partner site

    2. Links to our own home page with KW anchors

    To me it looks very very very naughty, almost misleading. But thought I would check in to see if you thought it was ok.

    I suppose for a partner domain it can't hurt.... but i don't want to undo all my safe BH work to now and end up in a worse place. We currently own first page results for 60 KW and more than 12 top 3 positions.

    Certainly in the example of the OP - these people are top of their field and are not doing much else!!!!

    I wouldn't suggest doing this, if one of your competitors reports you or if your site gets flagged, you've just created a footprint for a google rep to follow.

    Yes I was about to say... that having 400 links on 400 pages does seem a bit dubious....

    But then what if an advertiser wanted to buy that service from us and say... we will pay X for you to put a referal link to our site on every page of yours???

    ]And do you mean " a reason to dig about you"
