Personally, I do not do reciprocal linking. Just wanted to get that off my chest. I just think one way links are the gold standard so why go for anything less.

Or are just having difficulty getting free one way links. [Although I really do not understand why when there is article marketing, but never mind]
So if you feel you absolutely must engage in some reciprocal links, be sensible about it

I mean who is supposed to be befitting from who?
