What information do I need on an about page as an Amazon Associate?

3 replies
Hi all,

I'd like to know the essential information I need to put on an "About" page as an amazon associate. I'm not quite sure how to word it...Should I be blunt and say that this website earns money from any referrals it gives?

Any info would be great!

    It doesn't have to be on your about page. You could create a disclaimers page then link to it in the footer and put the disclaimer wording there.

    Directly from amazon:

    You can write about yourself as in what you do and why you created this site.

    At the same time you might also want to reveal that the products you are recommending on the site are from Amazon which you are promoting as affiliate.

    And should the readers be interested to buy, you will be getting a fair share of commissions.
