I've followed Annie Pot's advice, not to put an resource box that links anywhere, because these were those 10 articles to get me to the Platinum status, but I completely forgot to put any resource box.
The site claims to have between 15-25 million readers each month, so that's a lot. But the downside is that this a magazine, which focuses on more than just my niche, but that's ok too.
Anyway, here are my problems:
a) Since I've never had a resource box with a link to my page, they only linked me to my profile.
b) At the end of the article, they inserted a paragraph that leads them to their own product promotion. So if I had my resource box with a link to my website, would they still syndicate my article? Because I believe they would check my website, see "Oh my god, another marketer, damn, I have to find another article." (see what I just did? I put the period inside the quotation marks, like the EZA guidelines require, but that looks strange, doesn't it? )
c) If I change my resource box after I reach platinum level, will it be displayed beneath the articles that were already published, or just from there on?
d) If c) turns out in my favor, will it be ethical to request the outlet that syndicated my article to add my resource box?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
LATER EDIT: I just realized that this website, just "pulls" articles from across the web. The article was taken from a place that syndicated my article in the first place, they just "borrowed" it in the way that I don't think you can find it on their website, but they have a section that goes something like "From other places on the web".
