Hello,

It is something I remarked the last couple of days:
People but their affiliate link in their Blogs or Questions when they create a link to another Blog or Question....

Is there a reason for this?
I mean internally on the WA site is they're a benefit doing this?

I can imagine when the Blog shows in Google and people check that link and then again they click on the link with the affiliate link, there I see a benefit.

With affiliate link I mean the extension ?a_aid=37a03aed.

But are there others?

Is it a good idea to do this also?

Grtz,
Bert

I'm not sure why people do this Bert, it's a mystery to me also.

Sometimes, when a person has written a useful blog full of information detailing A LOT OF THE INFORMATION - I write it like this to emphasize the point since I saw someone do this - and refer to an external link to their website - and I challenged Kyle about it, and he said as long as the blog contains 99% of the majority of the information that's contained in the link, and the link is therefore only a reference to the information, it is legitimate according to Kyle.

But don't do a blog of two lines and put a link in to a page, this blog will automatically be deleted!

But for someone to put their link in their blog that relates to WA Affiliate Link - I can only think this person is using the WA Platform to attract visitors through their blog ranking in Google!

Ah! But I stand to be corrected if I err on the human side! :-)

Thks for the reply...
Yes indeed for Google I can understand, but now that I saw the answer of Moritz, there is no use doing it actually...

You mean when we share a blog on WA from WA?
Sharing blogs is adding points to your ranking on WA

Thanks for the reply Loes!

But I did not say share a blog but linking to a blog internally...
And apparently there is not an advantage because it already contains your affiliate link, see the answer of Moritz...

What do you actually mean with share a blog?
Probably we talk about the same thing.

But then my question is: when you link/share another blog within WA it delivers points for the ranking, but that is also without adding your affiliate link to the blog-link I would think?

Grtz,
Bert

No, there is no benefit to putting your internal affiliate links on content within WA.

Not sure which affiliate link you noticed. but it is against WA rules to use external affiliate links. As for benefits, all blogs appear on Google, they are ranked...
