    Some people believe that its important that your backlinks are related to your niche. I do not believe this. Im ranked number one on a few keywords for google that are fairly competitive and very few if any of my backlinks come from related sites. I personally really don't think it matters but you hear from some people that it does. Its another one of those controversial SEO questions.

    No, the links can be from any niche/industry. It might be difficult to get links from your exact niche (competitors), but non-competing "same industry" links will be better and provide more click-through traffic. And, Anchor Text is very important and almost any links from sites with PR of 3+.

    I would avoid trying for reciprocal links because many times when you put a link on your site to another site and then write to the owner of the site with your "reciprocal link" request, you never get an answer from them nor a link back to your site from theirs.

    There are plenty of lists of sites to get one-way links from right here on BHW.

    So just start getting as many back links as you can.

    You can get links from any place that you like, but it all comes down to the authority of the links (page ranks, their number of backlinks, etc.)

    I would advise you to NOT put any spammy links linking from your site out. This is when you get penalized.
