Take an objective look at your website and see if you are being completely upfront about your affiliate links. If not, it's worth making the necessary changes. It’s a good thing if readers know your reasons for recommending certain services and products. You are also making it clear that you value their trust and do not want to exploit them in any way.

Please note that the law regarding affiliate disclosures in other countries may be different. Even individual companies may have their own requirements when it comes to affiliate disclosures, and they will let you know about these when you become an affiliate.I have deliberately not dealt with disclosures in social media in this tutorial as it would have made it too lengthy.

If you have anything important to add that you feel I have omitted, please leave your comments. Of course, I would also like to hear your comments if you found this tutorial helpful and please click the 'like' button.

I'm not sure why anyone would have a problem with a site owner making money. They worked for it, and it wasn't free to build in most circumstances. I think people just want to know where their money is going. Geoff

I don't think people have a problem with it and we should be able to disclose with confidence.

Hi Josh,
People do seem to take it rather lightly, considering it is the law.

Especially if your affiliate program is harsh as well. Amazon close accounts down all the time for stuff like this. It may take a year, 5 years, 10 years, but they will catch them. Most new people are unaware too.

Hi Erica. Thank you for providing this useful training. I really need to take a look at this. In fact I think a lot of people do! I don't see many websites openly displaying the affiliate disclosure.

Yes, Andrew, I still can't believe how many sites do not seem to openly display a disclosure.
