Link Building Outside Your Niche
I know what you’re going to say: in the face of Penguin, link building outside of your own niche isn’t exactly safe anymore. That may or may not be true. It all depends on how you go about it, and exactly where outside of your niche you’re going. You might want to start by defining [...]

That's one massive paragraph! ...and hard to read.
It does not matter what niche you're in or how far away you start or stop... the problem with "link exchanges" for everyone isn't getting the links... it's where to hide the feedback loop(sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssss) because a single exchange will not help much nor will it get you into trouble with PENGUIN... but the reoccurring pattern of the feedback loop(sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss ssssssss) is the part that harms you whether you are inside your niche or outside your niche.
No offense to Nick Stamoulis of Search Engine Guide but his theory is full of crap!
Also no offense to SEO Chat but I wouldn't want to be associated with the BS without genuine evidence in support that shows "that may or may not be true," statement is completely above board.
Google's reference: Link schemes - Webmaster Tools Help
If you are exchanging something to get something in return... you are manipulating in order to game Google's quality guidelines... you can "get away with it" (I'll concede that)... but the gist of the article does not suggest this is a blackhat tactic... which it is no matter how much sugarcoating to apply.
The following are examples of link schemes which can negatively impact a site's ranking in search results:
•Buying or selling links that pass PageRank. This includes exchanging money for links, or posts that contain links; exchanging goods or services for links; or sending someone a “free” product in exchange for them writing about it and including a link
•Excessive link exchanging ("Link to me and I'll link to you
It's also interesting to note Google's hint of "exchanging goods or services for links" is a link scheme... so
Google suggests "this is a scheme"
You focus on the home gardener. These are people who enjoy gardening and making things grow as their hobby. If they have a good season, maybe they like to give away the proceeds of their garden as gifts to friends. Some of them might even be ambitious enough to make a little money on the side from the fruits (and vegetables and other plants) of their labors. So you can link to other nurseries.
Nothing wrong with Paid Advertisements but all links in association with this must be rel="nofollow".
You specialize in plants; what else do people who garden need? Gardening tools? Bricks to build borders? Outdoor water fountains and statuary? You probably don’t carry some of the things that your customers want need for their gardens, but that doesn’t mean that you’re losing business if someone buys that item from someone else. A customer who buys a wheel barrow from someone else isn’t going to NOT buy plants from you. “A great link building opportunity is to partner with relevant companies and pool your combined resources to help both companies succeed,” Stamoulis points out. So you can talk with a company in a related business about both of you being listed on each other’s websites as preferred partners. Or maybe you can take out ads in each other’s newsletters, or contribute to each other’s blogs. Get creative and think beyond a simple link.
The point I am making ... this article implies How to Game the Search Engine with Link Development.
Surely SEO Chat can do be
