We did some work for a couple of firms,and they put a link in their Useful Suppliers page recommending us.Our SEO agency disavowed these a few months back,as their business is not related to ours.But is there any harm in putting it back, as it’s natural?

JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

If this is essentially a trolling, where people are recommending your services, I would not worry about that. Because it doesn’t have to be a completely full link. Sometimes that’s helpful for other people that are looking at those sites as well. On the other hand, if that link is only there because of a business relationship that’s taking place, where you say, I’ll give you, I don’t know, 10% discount, and in exchange you put me on this linked list here, then that’s something that would fall into the category of unnatural link. So that’s something where you probably know best what the background is there. And this is just a link where people are saying, well, they did a great job, I’d recommend them for other people, then I would just leave that link there. I think that’s a normal, natural link.
