Google’s Cutts: Be Careful Linking Many Sites Together

Yesterday, Google’s Matt Cutts posted a video answerto the question “If I have 20 domains, should I link them all together?”

The short answer is, most likely no – you should not link them all together.

As I explained at Search Engine Land with my article titles Google’s Matt Cutts: Linking 20 Domains Together Likely A “Cross Linking Scheme” – it may be considered by Google as a cross linking scheme – at least those are the words used by Matt Cutts.

Here is the video:

As you can see, the overall theme and feeling you get from Matt is that it is typically a bad idea.

So the next question I will hear is what about linking 18 sites, or 15 sites, or what about 10 or 5 sites together. I love those questions. Those asking those questions are linking the sites for one purpose, ranking.
