Same outbound link from every page

Will this hurt PR or banned from SE?

Hi everyone,

Forgive me if there is a similar thread somewhere in this forum, point me there, thank you.

The software that I use for building my website automatically add a text link (pointed to the software provider website), this same link appeared on every page, so there must be 100's of this link in my site now, will this hurting my PR or even banned from SE?

I can't say for sure but logic would dictate that it can't be bad. Almost every site has links on EVERY page that are the same (i.e. "Contact Us", "Home Page").

If anything, the algorithm probably begins to heavily discount the second and third and fourth link until you get almost no additional PR value from getting, say, your 1,000th link from a site.

Not that this will be very helpful, but there is a possibility it could have a positive or negative effect on your PR. i don't claim to know everything yet, so that is all I can say. Generally speaking, you don't want outbound links on every page of your site because it reduces the likelihood of someone following an inbound link (theoretically).

On the other hand, if it is a link to a site of relevance, it coculd have a positive effect. I don't know if that makes sense. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will clarify if I am correct.

It won't hurt you to have these links. It probably won't help the target software company's site to have hundreds of links to them from PR0 pages. But, if one of your links gets them a sale, the links have done their job.

Thanks everyone. So these links seems not really do much of damage then, I'm more relax now.

Yep, I agree with you SEOMike, pr0 won't help them much, but most of my pages with such link are PR4, some PR3 and few PR5, will these figures change your mind?

From my observations site wide links (at least over 100 pages) will almost certainly trigger the sandbox/quarantine penalty. However if they are going to exist for a long period of time, they will eventually emerge.
