Did you know that some plugins installed on your website can automatically add affiliate links to your blog post?
There are affiliate networks out there that allow you to automatically monetize links. This is a convenient way to generate revenues from blog posts without actually adding your affiliate links, since the software does it for you. However, this technology can be used by third party plugins to take organic links on your site and convert them to affiliate links.
There are a few things to watch out for:
- You might not be getting the affiliate revenue. Yes, it’s possible that this is the price for getting that “free” plugin. The plugin generates affiliate revenues from your blog.
- If you published a sponsored blog post and the brand specifically requests that you do not generate affiliate revenue from the post, or they want to track the visits coming from your blog post.
