Hi. Jake Goss-Kuehn of Web Strategy Viking here.
I’ve always believed in transparency on the web and so I am disclosing that I’ve included certain products and links to those products on this site that I will earn an affiliate commission for any purchases you make. Not all links are affiliate links, but if you make a purchase on these you won’t pay a penny more than what it usually costs. It just helps us earn a commission to keep the website running. My goal with the blog and website is to help educate you on the possibilities that exist for a business, blog, freelancer in practically any field, but please understand I am doing this as a for-profit business and, frankly, so should you with your site unless you have some charitable endeavor in mind.
The site has grown so big at this point that it is nearly impossible to go back through and list each and every program that I have an affiliate agreement with. Given this, you should assume that any links leading you to products or services are affiliate links that I will receive compensation from just to be safe. Having said that, there are millions of products and services on the web that relate to SEO, blogging, and making money online. I only promote those products or services that I have investigated and truly feel deliver value to you. Examples would include the banners for Namecheap, Flywheel and other hosting providers. I’m also a direct reseller of team based products as a service such as SEO Reseller and Signpost, that may benefit from having me direct and lead those as well.
WebStrategyViking.com is also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. Any links to Amazon, might be direct commission links too.
Please note that I have not been given any free products, services or anything else by these companies in exchange for mentioning them on the site. This is bad for SEO, so I avoid it. The only consideration is in the form of affiliate commissions or compensation of an exchange of services. Sometimes I do talk about trusted local companies or freelancers that do deserve a shout out.
An affiliate link usually looks like a URL that doesn’t end in a .com – it looks like a bunch of tracking code.
