In episode 140 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if having a resources page is a good idea from an SEO perspective.
The exact question was:
On the same site (real estate agent), my client is asking about a resources page, which would mostly be links to companies that home buyers are recommended to call for things like property maintenance, home cleaning, insurance, etc. Is this a good idea from an SEO perspective? I already nofollow all external links, if that's relevant.
