    Hey,

    Looking for a straight up answer here (If possible)

    My main money site is ranking slowly but surely but I need sales to come in as I am paying storage costs for my stock.

    Now my idea was to setup another site with a little content but at the top have a big banner with "click here to purchase the product". Now the plan would be to use black hat methods to rank that site to the top with the outlook that the site will 100% get a penalty within 1-2 months but generate me enough sales to get the business going. Now the question is by having that banner/link pointing to my money site, would my main money site also get that penalty passed onto it?

    3-4 years ago I did this for a site and passed on 20-30k visitors per month through a banner but obviously times have changed now in regards to google algo. If someone can answer this I would appreciate it!

    Thanks

    Add a no-follow link if you are concerned and also link to other sites, may be on the lower end of the pages so that you do not lose any sales to those sites but they are still there.

    There's little to no chance of incurring a penalty through a banner link, so go ahead and add the banner to your site. Adding the nofollow attribute to the link is optional.
