Hello all,

I am wondering if someone can help please.

I am building a website that sells posters and wall art. I have recently been advised about incorporating external links on my website I was just wondering what type of external links people use (as I thought it would be a bit dangerous leading potential customers away).

Any advise would be much appreciated.

Nothing wrong with external links which are authoratative and aid the customer in someway, but doing it for the sake of doing it doesnt make sense. What's the reason you've been advised to do this? do the links in question help the customer? if there is a slightest chance of the links taking focus of the customer away, then simply don't do it and create your own resource to aid the customers decision.
