About Affiliate Content/Links

    Hi, I need your help please ! :)
    Since I usually find my answers into this forum, I think you will be able to give me details here..

    I received a notice that my blog was promoting affiliate content.
    I did have the same link into all my blogs for months until I did my new blog this morning and I receive the “warning/notice” message.

    This is what WordPress says about affiliate marketing blogs

    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). To be clear, examples like people writing original book or movie reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category.

    First, my blog is not about any money-making related products..
    If there is no affiliate links in my blog, only a link to a .com website, and it’s a review site that gives detailed descriptions of different products, would that be considered affiliate content ?

    I consider my website very similar to one that writes movie reviews and sends to amazon..
    But I review different products, and instead of sending people to Amazon (which can be used by affiliate marketers..) I send people to the product’s website.

    They specify that sending to amazon and etsy DOES NOT fall into this category.
    But Amazon can be used as affiliate program too..

    I would like some clear explanations on why I am not allowed to send people somewhere else to get good information before purchasing a product ?!

    Thanks a lot for your time :)



    You will need to contact staff directly about this. Nobody in the forums can help you. Contact staff via your dashboard as you’ve been instructed. And no, you can’t link to exactly the same website in every post; blogs which in staff’s opinion exist primarily to drive traffic to third-party sites will be deleted as in conflict with the terms of service.
