Q: Did you know we can't link to blogs?

I just got this in my inbox:


I know other users have also been linking to blogs so I wanted to give you all the heads up--you could get your MoneyMakers suspended! From what the MM rules say, I thought it was against the rules to make commissions by linking to websites by a referral link only, but it looks like linking to any other blog could get you in trouble regardless of if you are making money. 

The type of blogs I've linked to are coupon blogs, so don't link to coupon blogs!

Correct - not allowed. You/we can create our own post with the info provided (usually by using the actual coupon's link) but never back to the blog. :)

I have no idea what you are talking about but it's ok because I don't have a blog ;)

What it means is that we are not suppose to link to another site that is offering "deal info" (like another dealsplus-type site). It must be the deal's link (like to amazon or overstock).

It's actually only allowed if a blog is setup to offer a product of some kind - like the "as seen on tv" items. The blog is usually the item's name so it's easy to figure out. :)

I would assume you can't do it because the blogs themselves are usually mere gossip. Not saying the deals they post about aren't good and true but I assume this site requires the actual deal (or news) link be entered -- not a link to people "talking" about a deal. Plus, on those blogs, they often talk about more then one deal. How would you list all those with only one link? You're probably better off listing each deal separately from their deal link.

@gangstabarbie I don't have a blog either. :)
@MHT962Mainly what I have linked to are the free giveaways so everything has its own link. :)
@omegafemale, I like to do that as well, that is, post the deal myself rather than where I found it. hehehe ;) In a few instances I have just posted the link where I found the deal when I only had a couple minutes.
