Hi,
I am starting a new affiliate website and would like to know if adding the website to my google analytics account could affect the other two sites rankings negatively?


Thank you!

    Why would it? Google has nothing against gambling sites.

      Thank you! So the fact that my websites are related (on the same analytics account) to a new site will not affect their rankings?

      But if for example, I link from my "legitimate" website to a gambling site my website will get hurt. receiving a link from a gambling site is bad if your site isn't about gambling. It's bad to be related to a gambling site.

        A sports site is not a gambling site, but you think it would be bad if a gambling site decided to link to them? Of course not.

        It is not bad to be related to a gambling site.

          I understand but my other websites aren't connected to this niche in any way (completely different niches) and I don't want them to be even slightly related to this niche site.

          So my question is: Does adding the site to my other websites' analytics account make them related to that site in the eyes of google?

            If you are not linking between them Google could care less.

            In one of my analytics accounts right now I have an SEO site, a site about addiction, a site about home improvement, a forum, a site about finance, two gambling related sites, and a site about anxiety.

            Google does not care.

              Thank you very much! I understand. No matter what sites I have on my analytics account they don't affect each other and Google analytics doesn't affect rankings.

    The only way it might become a problem is if you started cross-linking the sites.

      Thank you! So as long as the sites are not linked, having a gambling site on my analytics account will not affect my other sites rankings?
      Google doesn't relate sites based on Google analytics accounts only based on links.

        You can link to them. If they are related and it makes sense to link between them, why wouldn't you?

          Well, I assumed from the OP's question that they weren't because he said "I have a google analytics account with two affiliate websites in normal 'legitimate' niches. "

          The other sites are not related in any way to gambling and I don't want google to think that they are related.

    There will be no issue if you add your affiliated website to Google Analytics. GA will consider it as separate property. So it wont hamper rankings of other websites. But on the safer side, be sure not to exchange links from those websites to the new one as they are not related to the niche.

    I saw some peoples are using multiple websites in single account and they are maintaining the ranking also. i think it wont affect the website ranking.
