Does google allow this?

I can not find anything on google disallowing this but,
Lets say I run 5 sites.

In the footer of these 5 sites I place links to the other four (The links
may be a colour that matches the background of the site, so as not to be
seen by the human eye)

Will this get me into trouble with google?

Check out (BIG gainers in Florida, maybe due for a
shafting in Rudolf)

They're using the same technique (but LOTS more links) that you want to in
the footer links... a bit of deception, but probably not worth complaining
about on this issue... after all, Google's given them a 7/10 PR, so they
can't be spamdexer's... or can they?

You also want to be sure that if you are crosslinking sites that yo
have some relevance to the theme. Otherwise doing so is just wastin
your time and hurting your overall theme goals
