Affiliate Blog Crackdown on WordPress.com
WordPress is cracking down on Affiliate Marketing Blogs.
This is news to me. But that’s the nature of the Internet – it’s constantly changing and evolving.
I have included links to the terms of service at WordPress.com and what you can do about it below…
Terms of Service:
“…content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites.”
Types of Unacceptable Blogs:
“Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs.”
What can you do?
Tell WordPress support you are creating an honest and unbiased affiliate review site. Ask what you need to do to comply with their terms.
As an alternative, you can use Blogger.com. There is nothing in their terms about affiliate blogs.
Blogger.com Content Policy:
Make sure you comply with the ever changes of the internet to stay ahead of the game.
Good luck and to your continual success.
