I have 2 different affiliate links in a post.
Banners are used that demo products as links, with the first banner (link) I added affiliate disclosure near it.
For the second link I use 2 banners, so should I add 2 affiliate disclosures, or is 1 sufficient for both of them?
Otherwise, I am thinking is it too much to have 3 affiliate disclosures, as banners are quite close to each other and its too much of the same thing.
Hope it makes sense.

You only need one affiliate disclosure however having said that if you are promoting Amazon they have specific wording you need to use just for them as they are super strict and fussy.

Otherwise aside from Amazon, just one affiliate disclosure is needed when you have affiliate links.

just so you know.

I normally have an affiliate disclaimer on each post regardless who they are.
However to please fussy Amazon in my sidebar I have an separate affiliate disclosure with their required wording for Amazon which everyone can see regardless of what post they read.

That way I am covered with fussy Amazon and include my normal affiliate disclosure for everyone else.

Hope that helps

I am not sure; but I can say here; I think you only need your one affiliate Disclosure document on your website; and that is it. That is all you need. If still concerned? Please ask again? Or wait for Other Members to answer? And Other Members please do feel free to comment?

Typically you are good with just one affiliate disclosure document, however, there are more strict affiliate programs like Amazon that want uncloaked links and affiliate disclaimer on each page with amazon affiliate links on them.

I'm on the Compliance Council of the Performance Marketing Association, the US association for affiliate marketing. We provide input directly to the FTC on Compliance Best Practices.

You only need one disclosure on any page. You aren't required to include that disclosure for something like a banner ad, as the FTC believes that the public already understands that the banner is an ad. The disclosure is required to precede any affiliate links, so top of post is best.

So far everything has fallen into place:-)

It should be clearly visible in the primary menu. Disclosure is typically a page.

You also need a shorter disclosure as close as possible to the first affiliate link in a post, either above or below the link.

For Amazon, it has to say "as an Amazon Associate I may earn from qualified purchases" and this has to be directly above your first Amazon link in post.

With your ad disclosure you just need to make sure the disclosure is visible on your site. This could be a clickable menu item in your main menu at the top of your site that leads to the full affiliate disclosure, it could be a brief mention at the top of a post... You don’t have to explain the disclosure for every single affiliate link.
