Affiliate & Earnings Disclosure
We like to be fully transparent with our website visitors.
Growing and maintaining a website costs time and money. In order to be able to create awesome content for our website, we have to monetize our traffic in a way or another.
At this time, we monetize our website via two methods:
1. By promoting products sold by other companies as affiliates
One way we earn money with our website is via affiliate marketing.
Many big and small companies have affiliate programs (eg. Amazon, eBay, Adidas, Booking, Walmart, and many more).
An affiliate program is a way by which these companies enable other companies or individuals to promote their products in exchange for a commission from each qualified sale.
Therefore, since we are affiliates for a few of these companies, some of our pages include affiliate links. This fact is highlighted at the top of every page through a short disclosure before the page content.
An affiliate link is a link that contains a tracking id that uniquely identifies us as the website that has referred a potential customer to one of the companies that we are an affiliate for.
When we send someone to a particular product through an affiliate link, we may earn a commission if the referred person makes a purchase.
The price will NOT increase in any way for the customer.
Even though we may earn a commission every time someone buys a product through one of our affiliate links, we do not promote any product just for the sake of earning money. We try to recommend only high-quality products and items with good reviews that we think we'll help our website visitors.
We hope that now it's clear what affiliate links are and how we use them on our website.
2. By display ads
Another way we monetize our website is via display ads.
Display ads represent the banners, videos, or other types of paid content you see on our website.
Advertisers pay us a fee in order to display these ads on PetBlog.org or when someone clicks on these ads.
