Good or bad practice?

Should I cross links in every page of my site with my other site?

If they are related then i would see no problem, but others can say if its a lot of links it could push you into the sandbox if it happened all at once.

I thought the same thing last year and cross linked 5 sites. A year later they have not returned.

If you have enough incoming links to both, then you can chance it. I like to promote all sites independently now.

Any others?
Cross links or avoid it?

I've done this with 4 related sites. I've seen little to no improvement as far as SERPs are concerned, at least not for the big money keyword. In fact, it seems like I've helped them more than they've helped me.

I don't think you will get penalized. Do it for your users and the sake of advertising, not for Google. If the sites you want to link with are your own, make sure they all have different content and different ip ranges.

I cross links between my sites in footer but I don't see any help due to that so I'm considering the removal of that footer...

If sites are on same C-class IP address I would avoid it like the plague.

Reciprocal links are also not worth as much as one-way links.

They are hosted by the same hosting firm shared ip I guess... a .com and a com.ar

Silverbytes - What does that mean C class ip...

IP - AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD
If the C range is the same Google assumes that the sites are all owned by the same person and may penalize you for it.

It doesn't get you much anymore and it may get you buried.
