Affilaite link on review page or informtion page?
I am planning on adding affiliate links to an app I use.
Is it better to
- write a page on the topic of what I use the app for, including how I use the app to achieve what I am writing about, and put the affiliate links in there
- write a page dedicated to reviewing the app itself without the additonial information more focused on the topic itself
I was just starting to do the second, and then thought of another site which has pure reviews minus any of the helpful other information that drives people to my site and I might be doing it wrong going with the second option if I am trying to make money through affiliate links.
Also, I wonder if it seems less honest to do the second way — as in, provding help on a topic and "slipping in" an affiliate link, as opposed to a review being blatantly there to review a product.
I'm curious to hear your thoughts.
