    Hello, I am new to WordPress and have a question about Affiliate links. I have found the support page “Affiliate Links” and read it but still was unclear on a few things. I was trying to hyperlink a word that leads back to another blog that I have and it did not work. Is it because it is not acceptable or is it because I copied info from that blog to this blog and the content needs to be rewritten?

    If the answer is no, the link will not work, do I need to go to wordpress.org and get hosting in order for this to work?

    HELP!!!

    Thanks,
    Leandra

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

    Affiliate marketing blogs are not allowed here. The only affiliate link exceptions are found here in italics:

    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.
