We have always believed in transparency on the web and so we are disclosing that we have included certain products and links to those products on this site and we will earn an affiliate commission for any purchases you make.
Our goal with the blog is to help educate you but please understand that we are doing this for profit and, frankly, so should you with your site unless you have some charitable endeavor in mind.
The site has grown so big at this point that it is nearly impossible to go back through and list each and every program that we have an affiliate agreement with. Given this, you should assume that any links leading you to products or services are affiliate links that we will receive compensation from just to be safe.
Having said that, there are millions of products and services but we only promote those products or services that we have investigated and truly feel deliver value to you.
