    You don't want sitewides any more. That ship has sailed.

    It really comes down to the circumstances of the links.

    Website designers often include a link to their own website in the footer of their clients websites. These are site-wide links and many large and highly ranked web design companies still do this, and still rank well.

    If the linking website is spammy then I would suggest staying away from having your links placed here. But if it is an honest website which is not set up just for affiliate sales or heavy advertising you should be pretty safe.

    Don't quote me on this.. but I think one of the updates during the spring or early summer frowned upon doing this. I am not sure if I ever heard anyone that was hit by it though.

    If you have keyword anchor text links site-wide, probably not a good thing for the both the linking and linked sites.

    Sitewide links aren't the problem. Over-optimized anchor text is.

    Take a look at WebMD and EverydayHealth. Alot of their links are sitewide from sites they own as well as others. What they have in common is that they don't have targeted keywords in these links. It's all Branded Terms or Image Links.

    and with's case, they had tons on sitewide links with the anchor text: "Wordpress MU" from their Edublogs domain and from themes they distributed. Google didn't interpret "Wordpress MU" as a branded term for them, and so removing those played the biggest part in their recovery.
