Affiliate marketing - how to tag links ‘sponsored’ or ‘no follow’ and disclosure statements

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.icecreamandjelly.co.uk

Hello

 

I have a blog which I would like to add some affiliate links in. I have read some of the other posts about this, but I still have some questions:

 

A. I understand I can add the text/code below to create a ‘no follow’ link:

 

<a href="http://affiliatelinkhere.com/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">your link in text</a>

 

  1. Where exactly do I insert this text please?
  2. I assume I have to insert this text for every affiliate link I add?
  3. Do I need to do anything differently if I use Amazon affiliate links?
  4. What’s the difference between adding a ‘no follow’ tag or a ‘sponsored’ tag and which would be best for me to use?
  5. Can I add this text/code to my blog on the personal subscription plan or do I need to upgrade to the business one? 

 

B. I understand I also need to add a disclosure statement to each blog post that I have affiliate links on.  I guess I can add this text manually to each page, but if I want to add it automatically to each page, I believe I can add the text/code below?

 

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

<script>

$(document).ready(function () { 

  $("<p class='disclaimer'> add your own text here.</p>").insertBefore(".blog-item-content");

});

</script>

 

  1. Where exactly do I add this please?
  2. Can I add this on the personal subscription plan?

 

Thanks in advance for the help

Hi,

#1. To add rel="nofollow", if you use a Business Plan or higher, let me know, we will give the code & where to add the code

#2. To add disclosure text, we can use Custom CSS. All Plans support CSS. Which position you want to add text? We can give code easier.

Thanks for your response.

 

1. So to be clear -I can only use ‘no follow’ affiliate links if I upgrade to the business plan?  Or are you saying if I want to do this using code I have to upgrade to the business plan, which would mean there is a manual way I can do this on the personal plan…?

2. For the disclosure text, I’d like it added to the top of each of my blog posts please.

#1. With automatic way, you need to use a jQuery code (require a Business Plan or higher).

With Personal Plan, you need to use manually, eg you can add a Markdown Block & use this syntax

Here is text with <a href="https://amazon.com/p/product-01" rel="nofollow">Affiliate link to Amazon</a>. End.

#2. I don't see blog on your site. Can you share link to a post?
