    Can Link Sharing Programs = a Penalty?

    Can link sharing sites like this get you a PR penalty from Google?

    http://www.linkbuildingdirect.com/

    I doubt you'd get much PR from them anyway since any PR the page might have will be divided by all the sites on the page anyway.

    Does Google frown on this sort of thing?

    I don't know that site, but best thing with any progarm is avoid links to web spammers or "bad neighborhoods", as that is the common reason you get penalty/ban from Google.

    Whether or not you get banned, it will definitely hurt you.

    Would a link from a geocities or tripod website be considered a "bad neighborhood"?

    Any kind of linking scheme should be avoided. If the links on those p[ages aren't alrady devalued they will be. And if it is after you get a boost in the rankings you can kiss that traffic you were depending on goodbye.
