Penalty For Linking To Unrelated Sites?

People who buy dresses also buy cars, so they are not completely unrelated since the target audience might have some crossover.
However, how do you plan to integrate the link into the site so that it will make sense to the site visitors? If you have a way of doing that, then it's fine because that's all that matters.
But if you're just sticking the link at the bottom of the page, or worse, hiding it, then it's not going to provide you with any value either from the search engines nor from clickthroughs by interested users.
Hope this helps. It's really all common sense. Just think that way and you'll make the right decisions.

If you always make sure what you're planning to do makes sense for real people you'll always be okay with the engines. No matter what some expert may say.

Basically, if a search engine has designated a group of Web sites to be a "bad neighborhood", and if all or most of your outbound links appear to point to one or more bad neighborhoods, you are literally associating your content with bad neighborhoods.
So what would you expect the search engines to assume, except that your site is unworthy as well?

There most certainly is not.

Yes, you are definitely off on that.
