    Hi guys, I'm starting to learn some SEO for my websites and I'm still very new in this subject. My question is if I decided to have an authority site in a niche (we'll call this the main-niche) and have several sub-niche websites linking both ways between the main niche and sub-niche AND even sub-sub-niche, would that cause a penalization in my rankings?

    I ask this because I came across footprints and I'm seeing that it would be bad for G to see all of these under one account. But I'm also seeing that footprinting is also good if your websites are leading to other contextual websites, but in this case these are still my websites. Let me also add that some of these sub-niches are and would be made with blogger and some under my host and paid domain.

    Thanks

    No penalties in this case. Although Google might not value the links much especially if it is able to figure out all sites belong to one person - same registration details, name servers, hosted on same IP, same Adsense account, same analytics, etc

    Good Content, With Legit feel, for all of your tiered sites- then no it will not hurt. Bad Content (scraped,spun etc) then yes it can hurt on your network.

    This is a simple answer for a complicated question as I dont know full details of how you have everything set up with linking patterns and foot prints. Hope this helps.

    Google dont like the old school 3 way linking or link networks.
    Just try to do the same with websites on diferrent ips .
    With few words make that seems natural .
    Also dont just link no authority sites together.Its logically google not give you the authority you nees.
    Some social and rich media campaigns , could help you a lot!

    No I don't think google will hit you for this at all, it is likely that some of your sites links will not has as much value as others, however your SERP will almost certainly not suffer. (There shouldn't be a problem with all of these belonging to one account!)

    What you are saying looks like building private network links, ofcourse the domains linking to the main domain has to be authority and non promotional, strictly for backlink only. If you are referring to something else then I don't see any need for small sites linking to the main site when everything can go into one site.

    Social bookmarking is very good and help us very much to index our links or increase ranking. If you will work on the low authority websites or non relevant websites then your ranking will be suffer so always choose the high PR website to do the backlinking.

    Yes it works. In many ways your building a private link network of sorts, it's how many of us rank websites ourselves.

    If your gonna create your own domains for link building then it definitely becomes a private network. Things like whois, ip address diversity and even the site design / platform can all cause problems with footprints.

    If this is the way your gonna go you need to search this forum for "blog network" and read, read, READ. There are lots of pitfalls with link networks and ways for Google to discover them but if you build it well and cover all your bases then you should rank for years to come!

    :cool:

    It can go either way. I have seen interlinked networks get hit, so it really depends on the execution and how you go about doing it.

    sure, everything depends on quality, for private networks, as example, quality = no footprints and content.
    But if you realy new in seo - check just on parametr - donor traffic. It would be more expensive, where you rush?)
