Is this an effective way to promote Commission Junction advertisers?

Commission Junction breaks up advertisers by category. For example, one of the categories is "Handbags." If you put "handbags" in Google's Keyword Tool, it'll tell you that one of the sub-niches is "brown handbags." Now -- what if I setup a page on my website talking about the different online outlets that sell brown handbags, and review each outlet (not review the handbags).

For example, I compare three different outlets, talk about the selection of brown handbags they have, talk about their return policy, customer service, the types of brown handbags they carry, etc.

Then in the end, recommend one of the outlets.

Hopefully, searchers would land on my page to learn more about where to buy brown handbags and then I'd redirect them to appropriate sellers and get credit.

Would this be a viable way to promote Commission Junction advertisers?

I'm planning to invest a lot on this...but before I do that, I'd like to hear a second opinion...

That sounds like as effective a way as any. You might then create a sub page that goes into greater detail about each of those outlets. That way you might come up for their name as well.

It would be cool if you could set up some sort of social tool where people could rate these outlets and talk about their experience with them.

People LOVE user generated reviews. You could become a major authority on these stores and their products.

Make sure you put any applicable coupons related to the product or merchant. This will help you retain bargain savvy lookers.
