I run a website that is for a non-profit organization and the site is mainly information for the consumer. A page on this site list stores that are a certain type of business. I am planning on adding websites to the information provided to the end user.

My question is this:

Should I nofollow the links to the external website? We are talking about 100+ links (and growing) on this one page. I do not want to negativity affect the SEO on my site nor on the other sites.

If you are going to add more external links (100+) in a single page, you should use nofollow attributes which is more safe for your website. If you have a page with bunch of external links targetting different business means it might look odd for bot. So my opinion is using nofollow in this case is highly recommendated.

Thank you for the information. I will play it safe and add the nofollow. – L84 Apr 27 '14 at 3:15
