This week Rand looks at a frequent concern we hear about: Will links from bad sites hurt my rankings?

The answer is generally 'no' but there are some qualifications. Everyone has some bad links pointing to them through no fault of their own. What can make a difference is the percentage of your total links that are "bad" and how they point to you.

Ask yourself this: Does your inbound link profile look like it was manipulated, overly-optimized, and illicitly acquired? If it looks that way to you, it'll look that way to the engines.
