    i have 2 sitewide links on my blog in the sidebar. One to wikipedia, other to related site in my niche. Do you think it might be bad for my site ?

    1. Wiki pedia link is fine.
    2. If the site is yours ( the other one ) , its fine. But if the other site is not yours...you are passing free link juice to it (if the blog is do follow)

    so i can't put a sitewide ad in the sidebar? I don't think so.. G might be penalizing certain linking schemas, but not all sitewide links..

    Here is are some evidences that sitewide links is not bad:

    1. cnn.com look at the footer, there is a link to other websites like cnnchile.com
    As Cnn is a news website, i guess cnnchile.com receives tons of incoming links in webmaster tools.

    2. Lots of websites have sitewide links to facebook and twitter. I didn't impact facebook or twitter pagerank.

    3. reuters.com have also sitewide links in the footer. For instance, they have their support team website called zendesk.com or their corporate website which is thomsonreuters.com Both of those URLs appears on every reuters article that are posted everyday. Since reuters is a news agency i think there are lots of new pages everyday.
