Sorry to bother everyone, I’m looking for an opinion?
All of my 3 sites ranks dropped in unison and the only connection was the fact that between them I had a link within the footer of one of my sites, I am talking about major drops between all of them, like from first page for very competitive words to page 6. I was of the assumption that having a link within the footer of your sites referring people to your other sites was not a bad,, thing..
Can somebody please take a moment and shed some light?, I have since removed the links, In addition when viewing my links via google webmaster tools is showed one sites links being 542,000 and the other being 2,432,567.
I am hoping that google has now just devalued the links from these sites and not penalized me for some reason.. in otherwards I hoping that all I need to do in order to get up is work hard and not infinitely.
I would appreciate your comments…
