Hi everyone. I am looking to develop a top 50 list of ecommerce sites in a particular country. The list will also contain grading on interface usability, overall value of products, reputation and traffic.
On top of hoping that this piece of content will attract natural links, I also plan to approach each the 50 sites listed for a backlink. My concern is whether google will see this as a link exchange program?
If so, should I "no follow" the links on my content? or should I simply not include the links to the sites on the content? (not very user friendly) Or, should I include the links as per normal as there shouldn't be any concern for such an issue? Or, is there any other way to get maximum benefit from the content?
