Official Posting Rules at Wealthy Affiliate

Last Update: Jul 13, 2021

Hey Everyone,

I just want to offer people a clear and concise "posting" rule list here at WA. Obviously, we are a "spam free" community, so any form of spam or blatant promotions are not allowed within Wealthy Affiliate. If your intended purpose of being here and to engage is solely based on your underlying promotions, please refrain from doing this.

The reason we are firm on our stance on self promotion here at Wealthy Affiliate is we are and want to continue to be a safe haven for people. One that is free of all promotions and focuses on people helping each other! :)

If you want to offer help or training or tell a story, do so within the mediums provided here (create training, create a blog post, engage within comments or chat with others).

Here are the rules for spam within WA. If you go against any of these, you may lose all posting privileges within WA and depending on or may be completely removed from WA without the ability to ever join again (yes, we do take this stuff seriously).

  1. No unsolicited messages promoting products, services, or outside communication to be sent through private messaging. This will lead to immediate removal of your ability to post anywhere within WA.
  2. No copied content allowed to be posted here at Wealthy Affiliate. This content will be immediately removed and you will lose posting privileges.
  3. Do not copy content from WA and post it somewhere else on the Internet. This includes copying your own blog content and putting it on your website.
  4. No promotions with comments or chat. Although these may seem like subtle ways to promote, if you are caught doing this, you will likely lose privileges. If a link is posted out of an act to help someone, not sell something, that is OK.
  5. No training should be focused around a promotion of a product or service or give half information. If it does, then it will be immediately removed from the training at WA and you may lose all privileges to post training in the future.
  6. No blog posts that are created for the pure purpose of promoting a product. This does include product reviews. Rants are OK.
  7. No adding affiliate links to any blog, training, discussion or private message. We do not allow any form of affiliate links here within your posts, reserve those links for your website.
  8. Do not post anything that is "niche" content. If you have a dieting website or a website that offers people recipes, these types of posts should be reserved for your own website and not within Wealthy Affiliate.
  9. No incomplete content. Do not post content where your readers are required to go to an external website to "read more" or "watch". All the content must be self-contained within the post itself.
  10. No soliciting phone numbers. Do not share your phone number, or asking for others phone numbers.
  11. Asking for personal contact information. Do not ask for personal details, such as email addresses, addresses, or first and last name.
  12. Any inappropriate/adult content. This includes adult content, website URL's or related images.
  13. Click bait headlines. Do not use incorrect or misleading headlines within your discussions or blog posts.
  14. No faith or religion based posts. We all have different beliefs and values, please do not use Wealthy Affiliate as a medium to discuss faith or religion. To avoid any form of conflict, we are a religion neutral platform.
  15. No signatures. Do not conlcude your posts with your website URL, image, etc. Do know that all of your posts will include your name and a link to your profile here at WA where you will be able to include your websites within the "websites" section on your profile.
  16. No politically driven posts. Politics are for Facebook, Twitter and other mediums. These discussions never end well and always end up in flame wars. Please avoid them.
  17. Promoting ANY product whatsoever. Again, we don't allow any promotions here within the community. These are reserved for website.
  18. No charity or GoFundMe posts. We do not allow any form of fundraising or charity including that campaigning for members here within WA. Please keep all fundraising campaigns external of WA.
  19. No "click bait" titles. The title of your post must represent the content you write. Do not create titles that are confusing and that have the purpose of attracting the most clicks as possible.

We are all here with the ultimate goal of success, if you try some "sneaky sneak" spam attempts within WA, you will be caught and you may be in for an "account explosion"! We are flexible on every other aspect of WA other than spam. No exceptions. Just don't do it!

We truly are a community of help and if you see any form of spam going on, please do let us know and we will handle accordingly. :)

i am new to the platform but find it very user friendly so far. and all the community people are truly golden. ifni post anything that im not supposed to pleased do not hesitate to inform me of it and i will kindly remove it, i have read and familiarized myself with the rules to the best of my understanding, which in no ways mean that i got it all down pat yet. so help me to stay within the guidelines set forth by the arbitrators at all times. thanks in advance

No problem but you still need to edit your last blog post as the affiliate link is still there, kindly and thank you :)

Now you know the rules you still need to take those links off your posts here that is important to do.

Well, I hope I don't get in trouble, I am definitely a sharer, and my post was to ONLY say how I got here, and that I excited the WA may play a dope ass role in this new chapter of my life. But, now that I've read this, I'm feeling like ... hand on forehead ... My apologies if my introduction post was too much... I'll do better

Hi - I had a quick glance at your Live Chat conversation, and you mentioned the name of your company and your Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Self-promotion is not permitted here, hence why you were directed to the rules.

But sharing your story is fine!

Hi Viola!

I wrote my message above, before reading the comments and then spotted that you'd made the same mistake I did! :) It's actually a relief to know that I'm not the only one this has happened to. I too wrote a blog that included lots of links to my blog/ebook/ etc.

I didn't spot the rules until they were pointed out to me.

It definitely needs to be made more prominent! I hope your endeavors pay off and you achieve all you wish for! :)

Best wishes, Alex

These rules should be posted/linked within the getting started training. If they are, then I missed them. If I missed them, then others will miss them. With that being said, hopefully there is a warning system of some sort to people that may unknowingly violate these rules before privileges start getting revoked.

Agree with you on the rules as for the warning they are reliant on members to advise on the rules and give the rules to them.
The owners may actually see the comments or posts and make a decision themselves or worst case scenario hitting the spam button but only if they are really spammers and not because someone doesn't like a member which has happened many times in the past.

So kind of a "self policing" situation? That actually makes a lot of sense to me.

Yes it is

Thanks Kyle,

I must show awareness here, but I did not see these Rules in the Entrepreneur training for WA. I only recently seen this from @TheAbie Showing it

Am I clear that we can not use a signature with our niche business name in the WA blogs!

Thanks and kind regards

Yes, you are clear :)
