    say there's a wikipedia article in your niche and you want to add your site to the list of links at the bottom. I've done that before, but is it bad to do it if you're linking to a site that is designed for adsense revenue? I mean obviously the site provides some good info with articles, but it's really designed to make money.

    Can you get in trouble for doing that?

    Penalized and banned by who? Google? I don't think that will happen.

    By Wikipedia? Highly likely that your link will be removed but will you be IP banned? Maybe.

    no definitely you will not be banned for Adsense, but If you try to spam Wikipedia (got be very careful with the link placement, so that the link cannot be removed and seen as a resource) then definitely they will ban your site on Wiki.

    I just added it to the "External Links" section at the bottom. That should be ok, right? There were like 8 other sites there already so I added mine to the bottom.

    that's the kinda thing bots don't catch, so if somebody finds/reports it, then the site itself might get blacklisted, but your ip probably won't. safe thing to do is find proxies that aren't already banned and use those.
