Would you consider this a safe (white hat) link-building strategy?
Our company has built 3D interactive models of some ecommerce products.
We want to allow other sites to use these models in their own ecommerce stores, at no cost, so long as they provide a backlink to us.
Reasons I think it's okay:
The 3D models are quality content, these were expensive to create, they're unique, and they get high engagement from website visitors.
They'll only be used on sites that are relevant to our industry
We will manually approve which sites can use these 3D models
Reasons I question if it's okay:
- There is an "exchange" happening. We provide the 3D model for them, they link back to us.
