Very safe interlinking

Site interlinking for the paranoid - is this OK?

7 sites.
Different content on 6 (2 are similar).

Would like to give 2 a little boost by linking to them from some of the others, without getting into trouble.

Here is what I propose:

- An 'about us' page on some of the sites which links to the 2 sites.

Want to avoid a network interlinking penalty. Is there any safe way to do this? Most sites are on the same account.

Hi tigertom,

Since most sites are on the same account, your risk is higher.

It also depends on the number of the other backlinks that your 2 sites currently have. If they are enough and high-quality, providing one link from the aboutus page of the other sites will probably not cause any problems.

i would question the existence of a network interlinking penalty.

i would have thought that you just loose link juice.

and if over used would cause the lose of all the link juice form those links.

*i would question the existence of a network interlinking penalty.*

I'd agree there doesn't seem to be a "stand-alone" crosslinking penalty, however I'm pretty sure it's used as a strong indicator when evaluating the linkage pattern.

Thank you for your replies.

What I'm after is a 'couldn't-possibly-offend-Google-even-if-they-went-into exterminator-mode' method of site interlinking.

I have read that 'external' good quality links can help negate possible 'networking' penalties, so thanks Aris for that.

If the sites are on different IPs and as long as the links are one way from the high powered site to the two you want to boost you will be ok.

I would think most of us give our new sites a boost by spotting them a link from our established sites.
