Interesting advice lea - I asked something like that on another forum before and nobody really "agreed" with the technique (nobody disagreed, either, though lol).
Here's what I mean:
If you want to get links to a certain type of e-commerce website, the simple fact that it's an e-commerce website will make it harder to link to (the same content on an e-commerce website will get fewer links than the same content on a non-commercial site as many linkers/webmasters dont like to link out to obviously commerical stuff).
So at the end of the day the question would be: Which way do you lose more link juice: if you miss out on links (because people dont like to link to content on an e-commerce site) or if the link juice reaches your e-com site through a non-commercial site (not directly).
Sounds very much like you've found that using a non-commercial information site is often worth it overall?
