Are You Allowed To Use Affiliate links In Your WF Blog?

by Chri5123 8 replies
Hi Guys,

Just a quick question to double check whether oyu are allowed affiliate links in your WF Blog?

I am guessing not as i put one in mine and had it removed, but thought that I would check anyway.

What about if you offer both?

1 normal link and 1 affiliate?

Thanks for your help in advance.

All the best

Chris

    It's probably not a good idea.

    Just saying...

    Every day I check the obituaries. If I don't see my name there, then I know it's going to be a good day!

      According to Allen Says in the post below it's okay but there is a big caveat. Don't go crazy plastering affiliate links all over the place!

      I don't say affiliate links can't be used in the blogs, but when they go overboard and every post
      is nothing but affiliate links it becomes obvious what they are doing and we delete them all.
      Hopefully folks respect that if not it will change and will be banned. Just use common sense. It's a blog not a billboard.

        Thanks for the help.

        The reason i ask is because i was using my blog to tell fellow warrior members how to make money online and yes, i did put an affiliate link through to a helpful product that was inline with the post.

        So I don't think I was spamming and it got removed.

        Not sure why :confused:

        All the best

    Why not do it the smart way and create a landing page?

    Build a list before sending people to an affiliate link...

    That way you don't even need to worry about the issue, and you get yourself some repeat traffic and customers...

    i think there are rooms here that allow to post affiliate links, not sure... but here its not a good idea as the forum might suspect you for a spam or something, better check the rules to make sure

    Allen is just trying to keep the forum from becoming a spamfest. There is so much pressure on the people here just trying to keep it clean. Even my blog which has much MUCH less traffic gets spammed constantly by porn spammers.

      It probably has to do with HOW the blogpost is written.

      If it is written in a way where someone could even POSSIBLY think that you wrote it to sell that product, it's probably going to disappear.

        Hi Allen,

        Yes I suspect this is the case!

        I honestly did not create it to spam, but more for a helpful resource that provides value.

        I will continue to update it though and maybe after I have a few more entries I will try again.

        Thanks for all your help!
