I have two websites. My #1 website has a forum. The forum cannot be put on with that website because the server does not allow MYSQL, the database needed to run this forum.
I placed the forum on my #2 website server. There is no links from the actual #2 website to the forum. There is only links going from the #1 website to the forum on #2.
1. Am I breaking any unwritten Google laws that is going to cause me heartburn later?
2. Is there any problem having the forum on #2's server, without a link to it from the #2 website?
I am not trying to get extra google points for this forum, and don't care that I am losing counted hits. I just want to make sure I'm not crossing over into the "it's banning time" crowd. Thanks for your advice.
unwritten Google laws
The written Google laws [google.com] might be helpful. I really wouldn't believe that you've crossed the line into the dark side of anything, but I would think about switching the sites over to opposite servers. Seems like life would be easier and then you could move on to worrying about other things ;>
