    Does outbound link profile affect seo


    Its an affiliate site and the page contains description of multiple products,
    each with an outbound link to the sale page.

    So how does the outbound link profile affect the seo ? Since we are linking to a particular
    domain most of the time.

    Good outbound links are good for your SEO, as citations, sources, etc.
    As far as you are linking to a sale page, I would recommend you use the rel nofollow tag.

    yes, i am doing rel="nofollow" to sales page links, and also thinking of adding links to some resource pages to add value and make the outbound link profile look natural.

    For me the most important in your case is to add real value to your content (description) for 2 reasons the first to rank high, If you have similar descriptions to other website that already rank for your keywords life is going to be hard for you, the second is that once a visitor is on your page you need to give him the envy to purchase your good or service.

    It's harder for you to have credibility in the eyes of a visitor if your an affiliate than if you are the actual reseller.
