I have read many articles with seo advices, and many of them mention "the importance of outbound links" on a web page i want to optimise.
All articles say that outbound links connect my website to other usefull content on the internet, and this makes google to like my website more.
The websites i am promoting are mostly eshops, and it is difficult to host external links on eshop websites, mostly because of the dogma that once a visitor lands on an eshop page he has to buy or die (no outbound links to keep the visitor on our shop).
I want to ask if some member has any experience on this, and if so, i would like to ask if it would be enough to make a "resources" page on my website with external links (hided somewhere so that only google sees it) or if i have to post "sidebar links" or something similar to all my pages or (which i hope is true) are all these articles missinforming (a thing that i cross over often when it comes to seo advices).?
Thank you very much for your time.
