I am considering starting a blog for gift ideas and reviews, and upon reading the Terms of Service, this bullet point stood out:
By making Content available, you represent and warrant that: …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)…
Obviously, as I will be offering gift ideas and reviews, I will be adding links of products to third party sites. Would this in any way affect my account on WordPress or lead to its suspension? I’ve also discovered that some of these websites offer affiliate programs; would signing up to these programs cause any issues?
Many thanks in advance for your help.
