Disclosure Regarding Affiliate Programs

[*note] Links thus marked are to sites for which WebsiteTips.com has signed up for an affiliate program - such as Trellian's Keyword Discovery, Wordtracker, and Aaron Wall's SEO Book.

Since WebsiteTips.com already had links to their sites anyway and because they have strong reputations for being good, worthwhile products, WebsiteTips.com's owner, editor went ahead and signed up for their affiliate programs late summer of 2007.

  • WebsiteTips.com had links to these sites prior to signing up for these affiliate programs.
  • WebsiteTips.com and its owner don't get paid anything for:
    • including any of the affiliate program links at WebsiteTips.com.
    • listing these sites at WebsiteTips.com.
    • anyone clicking on the affiliate program links.
  • WebsiteTips.com and its owner do get an affiliate payment if and only if someone signs up for the affiliate product within a short time period after visiting those sites from the links on this page.
  • WebsiteTips.com continues to add ONLY quality resources, regardless of the above affiliate programs that comprise only a handful of links out of our 2,500+ resources.
  • Like any other helpful resources, Websitetips.com continues to add new annotated resources discovered that we feel would be helpful to visitors, whether or not they are related to our very short list of affiliate programs.
  • Affiliate text links anywhere at WebsiteTips.com that aren't otherwise clearly noted as an ad or a sponsor are duly noted with the above [*note] link.
  • In addition, effective 04 November, 2007 all affiliate links now permanently include rel="nofollow" tags, a recently added requirement to Google's Webmaster Guidelines for “paid links.”

For more information on “paid links” and the use of rel="nofollow", see Potential Penalties or Banning by Search Engines and Directories here at WebsiteTips.com.
