At TeachYouWP, we believe in honesty, transparency and following the rules of the open web. That’s why we believe it’s important to let you know exactly what you get when you use this site.
As all the other sites out there, we need certain resources like servers, network, bandwidth and other stuff to keep serving you and get you great content. And as you realize, these resources require money to keep the lights on.
As one of the sources to generate income for this site, we use affiliate links. We’ll explain better how it works in the following section.
Sometimes when we recommend a product, we’ll link to the company’s website using what’s known as an affiliate or referral link. What it means is that we get s small commission if you end up buying recommended service or product.
Sometimes that commission is just a few dollars; sometimes it’s a little more. Sometimes it’s a one-time commission; sometimes it’s a rolling commission — so if you sign up for a monthly subscription service we might get a percentage of what you paid.
But here’s the important thing — that referral doesn’t cost you a penny. The entire commission comes out of the vendor’s pocket not yours.
Most important thing to note is that we would never recommend a product which we don’t like or use ourselves. All the products we recommend are tried and tested, or we actively use them ourselves.
So that you can easily tell when we’re using an affiliate link, we’ll put (affiliate link) after it.
For instance, this is what an affiliate link to our recommend web hosting service Blushost looks like:
Bluehost (affiliate link)
Although we try our best to mark all affiliate links, it is possible that we missed some. So, you should probably assume that every time we link to third-party service or product, we get a commission from them.
