This sounds like a post from your website. If it is be careful posting it here as well, as Google will see it as duplication.

Awesome blog post.

However not entirely agreeable with Mistake #3 - Of course, it would be better review to create if we were able to buy the product, however it is not a must.

Thanks for the share.

Have a question for you, I noticed you are sharing internal links, if a non member is viewing your blog post, and clicks on one of your internal links, they later signed up. Would you get the commission or the author of the other blog post does?

Not sure! I am try to figure this out. If I include the link to this page from my own website. Then the viewer would have my cookie. So does that cookie get covered up when they click on the links within my post? What is your experience?

That would be okay.

But say they showed up form the net, totally organic. What would be the case then?

The links within the blog have the URL my.wealthyaffiliate.com/xxxx which to me means that if they found my blog organically online it would carry my cookie.

What do you think?
I think it depends on the link structure. if the link is https://wealthyaffiliate.com/article name then the article writers cookie would be used.
However if the link is my.wealthyaffailite.com/article name my cookie will be used.
Is what I am thinking really true? What do you think?

Thanks.
