“Text links are an important factor in today’s search engine optimization, and exchanging links with other websites is a good way to get them. However, doing a link exchange with a website that is penalized can have some detrimental results”.

That’s right.

Any site that is involved in “black hat” SEO techniques or has already been penalized by Google, will hurt your site if you link to them. As enticing as it may be to exchange links with site X that has “millions of unique visitors every day”, or submit your link to any site for that matter, it is good practice to check it out first.

A “bad neighborhood” or site looked upon unfavorably by Google due to activity outside of the Google SEO guidelines, can harm your page rank and Google presence.

To avoid this, utilize this tool, the bad neighborhood link exchange checker.
