I have a website hosted at wa; there is a free brain exercise on the website. I am giving away one of my own creations to the first person to send the correct answer; can I share the brain exercise offer in a wa blog.

That is not allowed here according to the rules

It may be the rule but what are your thoughts, maybe a way to extend the benefits of wa without downgrading the platform.I am not selling a product.

You can send people over to your profile, and give them the opportunity to go from there to your website

I do not think you can share the brain exercise offer in a WA blog.

However I think you can talk about the brain exercise in a WA blog. And about how it helps people, especially people in the affiliate marketing space.

You can in your WA profile specify your websites, and social media links. Some people do, some don't. That would be your judgement call.

Thanks for sharing, but I am not sure you are correct. I would love to talk about my brain exercises, there are two sets of exercises, one to promote critical thinking and one as cognitive function tests for stroke victims and for primary schools. These websites also promote my art - so I am not sure your observation is correct. I hope admin will way in.

Well, lots of WA members have their websites mentioned in the "follow me on". Lots also do not.

Look at Kyle's WA profile for one. He has a number of websites there.

Look at Carson's WA profile for another. He has a number of websites there.

If you want Kyle or Carson to confirm this for you, I would suggest you send one of them a PM.

My thinking is that if you can not, that "follow me on" section should not be there in the WA profiles. Also both Kyle and Carson should not have websites specified there in their WA profiles...

Nowhere in your text "about me" in your WA profile can you specify your website, only in the "follow me on" section (at the bottom right of your WA profile).

In a WA blog, you can talk about how brain exercises would work for affiliate marketers and maybe provide a brain exercise. It needs to be complete so that a visitor can do a brain exercise without going to an external site. Specifying an external website within a WA blog is against WA rules.

I believe this is not OK.
See Kyles post: Perhaps you can ask for Comments via SiteComment for this post and then WA-members will see it.

The question was asked in classrooms so members are seeing it.Thanks for your comment. What do you think would be the danger if the process was not breaking the rule?

I don't know exactly.
We just may not use WA blogs to gain traffic to our sites. We have the SiteComment-Tool which helps us to get traffic.
If we use WA blogs to promote our sites in any kind, even if the service is for free. then it would get out of control in the end, I think.

But I see some top earners doing affiliate bootcamp create blog posts in their profile blogs here with links to their personal blogs hosted at WA. I wonder why are they being allowed.

Surely that shouldn't be allowed as that is all I have heard since I have been here

Kyle and Carson have made rules about what is not allowed, see this post: Have a great day!

I hesitated to share this link about a blog post of one of the top earners here, as it might upset him, but since you guys have mentioned about that topic "Spam is a NO NO!", then I'd like to drop the link here now: I was about to share my affiliate link for that particular blog post here in WA on Twitter, but after noticing that there are links to writer's personal blogs, I realized there's a risk my traffic might end up in his personal blog and then personal referrals to him.

I share a lot of blog posts on Twitter from here, but this one, I
skipped sharing that link as I might lose some potential referrals.

That is so wrong, why is he allowed to do that?

Like in medicines, if the good effects outweigh the bad effects, people are allowed to take them.

With that blog post, I think, WA sees the motivational benefits members can get from reading the blog. And for me, that helps me a lot in terms of motivation.

That guy is a friend, but I will never share his post on Facebook or Twitter, as I will be filling water to a bucket with holes, which can be just a waste of time. (Traffic ending up signing up with the guy instead of me)

There are other good blog posts here (alternatives), and training as well, that are worth sharing on social media without the fear of leaking traffic to someone else's sign up page.

I'm not sure if the example you showed is allowed or not.

Better not to do any kind of promotion at WA. If you want to know exactly you can always ask Kyle and Carson.

Wish you all the best with your online venture!

No same here, I look up to Eric and he has taught me so much but I don't understand why he wrote a blog about joining WA inside WA.
I know that the blogs here get indexed by Google and I understand in a way why it has been allowed but surely things like that should be kept for your own website? Just my opinion.

That is why I disagreed with David.

links to blog posts and links to websites are two different things.

That does not sound right.

I have always felt there were some grey areas that needs clarification. There was some mention of a suggestion box; Is that in place yet.?

WA should simply not allow people to have links in their WA blogs going to outside sites, so that people do not break the rules, either on purpose or by accident.

But then, if you follow this link, you will see a blog post where there are links to an outside site promoting WA bootcamp. Also, this one: This is not to criticize WA's handling of these blogs, but as an affiliate of WA, I feel uneasy sharing this particular blog posts to social media. I'd rather share the posts of others that do not contain links to their promotional sites.

I agree.

A WA blog should not have links going to outside WA or to an WA Affiliate's sign up page to WA or to WA boot camp via an affiliate's id. That is just wrong.

That is one of the WA rules, so it should be enforced for one and all.
