Does bunching you URL's together in signatures create a footprint?

Let's say I have 3 sites to promote.

Would putting all three in my signature create a footprink red flag for Google?

Would it be like hosting on the same server or interlinking my properties?

For example, let's say website A is hit by Penguin but B is intact, might bunching them up send in a signature set a flag and get Google to sink site B also?

I don't think signature links have a lot of value in 2012. If it looks unnatural (and to me, it would look unnatural) I would say you could have a problem.

There are things that do not have positive value which are still reputed to have disbenefits if abused. I have no knowledge about signature links but the "look" would depend on circumstances. Working in the music business I know plenty of people who perform in several line ups so multiple links would be perfectly natural. On the other hand if you have a travel site, a mail order business and a computer repair business those would not look natural together.

I'ts not exactly a "red flag" but as far as I know it can be a way to recognize to relation between the three websites.

Yes that's what I'm worried about. Some of my sites have tanked because of Penguin and some haven't.

No spam, all same SEO strategies, just Google being all over the place.

What I'm afraid of is that G will punish the sites doing well by association with the penguin affected sites...

And all sites are related industry.
