i run ten web sites. the sites are not cross linked.

site (A) which is a large site links to all ten sites on all of its pages, about 500 pages. i do this because they are all designed by my web design company, which i state. I use the same footer and header to make it easyier to update the site.

now i have designed a large site (B) with about 5000 pages which links to the other 8 sites, but not to site (A).

the other 8 sites do not link back to site (A) or (B).

So (A) links to all.
(B) links to 8 sites, but not (A)
8 sites that don't link back to (A) or (B)

sound confusing.. :)

Do you think i will get a penalty for this?

thanks

It seems slightly odd to link to ten domains from each of the 500 pages on site A, but your description doesn't sound to me like the famous heavy cross-linking penalty.

None of us can be sure that you'll be safe, though. Who knows what penalties Google will introduce next month, or the month after.
