Tradedoubler

  1. Hi,

    I just got feedback from a partner on the following: I'd received some stuff from a online shoe store in return for linking directly to them in a blog post. I did, but then I got an e-mail claming that I'd linked through Tradedoubler instead of directly, and thus they weren't able to trace traffic generated through my blog. The clicks generated through my blog then won't increase Google-rating etc, i.e. making me worthless as a partner.

    Now the problem is that I have no idea about how this has happened; I've never enabled TradeDoubler (as I haven't gone pro, I can't even enable plugins or edit the head of the blog) and so I wonder how to disable it (and event why this has happened in the first place).

    I hope somebody might be able to help me, as I guess this will be a problem for other potential partners as well!

    The blog I need help with is lunchprat.wordpress.com.

  2. Check the TOS! Such links can get your blog suspended!!

    http://en.wordpress.com/tos/#!/fresh/
    the Content is not spam, is not machine- or randomly-generated, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);

    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category. Here is a thread in the support forums that talks more about which affiliate links are OK or not OK.

  3. Thanks, I just realized that now. Obviously, I won't do this again. Thanks for your feedback!

  4. You are welcome. Happy blogging!
