(I had initially guessed that the contra dance shoe link was the same sort of situation, but it's actually mostly meetup.com links from events created by one organizer who puts a "Choosing Contra Dance Shoes" link on every contra-related meetup event they post. So far they've created over 400, which is pretty impressive!)
