    Can site-wide links hurt your ranking?


    It's old news but I just caught this article: http://seoblackhat.com/category/googlebowling/ which suggests that having site-wide links pointing to your domain can hurt your rankings.

    Is this confirmed?

    Site-wide links wont hurt your rankings and in the same time they wont help you. The general opinion is that site-wide links are getting devalued by google; but it wont lead to a ban.
