When I first started to add affiliate links to my site, I've learned that I need to have an affiliate disclaimer and that it should be easily visible for the user. So I've started to search Wealthy Affiliate for a guide on how to do that. After a short search I've found this training by Trish (Triblu)

Trish uses a plug-in that creates a nice button which you can place on posts where you have affiliate links. But I don't like to use plugins for simple things that I'm able to code. I feel it as a waste of plugin space, so to speak:)

I knew how to add a simple html link but it wasn't good enough because:

  1. simple text link at the top of the content doesn't look very good

  2. this is a big one - text snippet (Description in All in One SEO plugin) that is displayed in google search contained the text from the link

Point 1 was easily fixed by styling the link to look like a button, but the point 2 was still a problem so I had to find a another way.

And in this training I will share with you what I've found. Hope you'll find useful:)

I just created my own, have it saved in a file, copy and paste it when having a post with an ad! I believe from listening to others here, the fewer plug-ins the better!
