I always thought if you open multiple stores, it’s good SEO to link one to another. The more links you have to valid, well-maintained sites, the better off you are as far as placement on Google, right? The other day I interviewed Joel Lederhause of DiscountRamps.com, who said it’s not a good idea to link his 25 niche sites to one another. he says Google doesn’t like this. He puts his SEO efforts into maintaining unique product listings on each site–with 11,000 products he has lots of content to maintain. Is that true about Google links–when you have multiple sites that sell similar or related products, Google doesn’t like it if you link one to another, and might even ban you from doing so?
