    Can Backlinks from Adult site really affect a site?

    I have heard many times in DP that if an adult site links to your site can have a bad affect on the site. Is it possible? Few months back I found a thread in DP where a member was saying to OP that he can get his site banned in Google. Don't know what was happened later.. What do you think? Is it possible.

    I think NO. What about you guys?? Did anyone ever tried it on his/her site? Is there anyone who has backlinks from adult site and the site is still good in Google?

    It's possible but not probable. It would also depend on how many backlinks are adult compared to quality backlinks. In other words it would be hard to effect an established site with a large number of backlinks as opposed to a newer site with little of no backlinks.

    i think not. if i wanted to destroy a competitor, i probably will put his link to my porn site. no sweat. google won't probably allow that.

    Probably doesn't hurt you, but also probably doesn't help you with link juice if thats your point - niche mismatch. But if you are worried about advertisement - i wouldn't be.

    It possible that someone can hurt a competitors rankings with adult links. But remember that it's possible to win the lottery.

    Matt Cutts has discussed the topic and he says that Google trys hard not to allow a competitor fo hurt your rankings with spam links.
    The short answer is we try really hard to make sure that one person can't Google bowl another person. You try to include it in your algorithm so much that you don't want those links to count, but you don't necessarily want anyone to be in a position where somebody else could try to hurt you....

    We try to make it so that it doesn't cause a drop in your rankings (if a competitor tries to hurt you). We try to do stuff algorithmically, we use manual means...we've been pretty clear that we do not like paid links and we take action on it, but at the same time, we try very hard to make it so that just because somebody else doesn't like you, they can't submarine your rankings and things like that.

    A site that is strong with a lot of quality backlinks wouldn't be effected. Let's say you start linking into CNN from porn sites. It won't do anything.

    The issue is more that the website that is getting the bad backlinks is very weak.

    When a person is looking for Porn why he will come to your website if it is not a porn site. So it will have no effect instead bad effect by google for not linking in relevant site
