    I never really considered bad neighbourhoods before, other than not having dozens of adult links on a none adult website.
    I tried the tool at bad-neighborhood.com on my directory just as a matter of interest and it spewed out a bunch of links which it claimed as questionable.

    My question is how serious should i take this?

    Here's 1 example this is an internal link.

    Questionable:
    Found on: AllSkyTV Directory
    URL: http://www.allskytv.com/Games/Gambling/
    Anchor text: Gambling & Betting

    I assume gambling is considered as bad neighbourhood because its banned in america? So the rest of the world should consider it as unfriendly and immoral too.

    This actually effects pr??? I think thats a bit nuts...

    I don't know too much about bad neighbourhoods so i would appreciate any information that would be enlightening.

    Thanks!

    Thanks OWG had a good read...

    I already check my links before i add them (links, pr, indexed pages).

    I won't add a gambling site unless it is pr 4+ (or a very impressive page) simply because theres too damn many of them, this helps cut the ammount down a bit and i only have the quality ruputable ones.

    I found this paragraph the most useful:

    I think its amazing the number of webmasters who fail to realize some of these points. They seem to think that all risque or other adult natured sites are bad links. So in my summary its safe to add what links you want as long as they are good links and fit into the topic. Correct me if i'm wrong of course. :)
