A friend wants to set up a blog with news stories of a particular subject but also carry links to his store which sells related items.
He will not be selling items from the blog, it will simply be some links pointing to his main website amonsgt the new stories he writes.
Is this allowed?
There is a concern about the tag surfing.. say he writes a review for a movie then puts a link at the bottom of the news story so someone can buy the movie DVD from his other website, is that allowed?
I have checked the ToS for him but I cannot see anything much relating to this. All I can see is "Automattic may also from time to time change its policies on offering commercial content or displaying advertising, and it may do this without notice" but I dont think thats the same thing. Maybe I am missing something?
