Unrelated or off-topic niche backlinks can damage your sites reputation unless they can be associated with one another through a brand or trading name.

For example:

  • Stack Exchange

    • Stack Overflow
    • Pro Webmasters
  • Dixons Retail

    • PC World
    • Currys
    • Knowhow
    • Dixons travel
    • DSGi Business

One or two off topic links isn't going to do a great deal in terms of being punished by Google or Bing but they are unlikely going to help either. You should only want to link in and from such websites if they are directly associated with one another because it helps promote the brand.

If ever in doubt... always use rel="nofollow" on your links.
