    Site Wide Links Hurt Google Ranking?


    I've heard that site wide links can hurt Google ranking. What exactly are site wide links, can someone please explain?

    Definitions can vary from one webmaster to another, but for me those are the links on your footers, which are the same in all pages. But those links are pointing to sites not related to yours and will look like a paid link.

    The reason to avoid this is that, those links will not help a visitor in the first place, and Google is taking action to reduce the value of those links.

    One link from one c-class IP is the best way to build links...sitewide links are useless and cost more money.
