Could we put affiliate links on selected non-review posts?
Hey there WA team! Got an idea I'm unsure of, so asking for your insight on this!
I know the starter courses by Kyle teach you to avoid the overuse of affiliate links and the focus should be putting them on product reviews, as well as linking other posts to those particular reviews, instead of putting affiliate links everywhere.
But given the context of my website, I'm starting to think it could be beneficial to put certain affiliate links of several "best of" posts for example.
What's your take on this? Do you guys put links exclusively on reviews or you've been adding links to other posts and never had trouble with Google?
Most of my "best of" posts/lists are pretty comprehensive and have plenty of information to at least point the visitor in the right direction.
An example would be this one: https://shoesforhire.com/best-nike-basketball-shoes-optimal-...
I break down the 9 best basketball shoes from Nike, detailing their strong points, possible drawbacks, and also additional notes people should know before buying.
This alone could be enough for some people to make a decision, so perhaps it might be a good idea to put links for the top shoes mentioned in the list? I feel like I might be missing out on potential sales as not everyone tends to care about the full review.
Of course, I'm mostly concerned by Google, as I don't want to stuff links everywhere, but I'm interested to know what you do in situations like these?
