Reciprocal link exchanges aren't just bad SEO, they're also bad branding. When people search throug your site via google, they'll come up with listings for viagra, adult toys and cheap cigarettes. Is that the kind of image you want for your family-oriented business?"
It should also be kept in mind that consulting and outsourcing has changed the nature of emplyment itself. Also, the definition of "unemployed" has changed a lot over the years... and that can sometimes fudge up surveys depending on who's collecting the data."
