Blogging’s Dirty Little Secrets – Affiliate links

Bloggers have a dirty little secret that some don’t want you to know about: they make money off their websites with something called affiliate links.

Are you surprised?  I hope not because we’ve mentioned it more than a few times here on Green Bay Consumer.

When I first started using the internet in my quest to find the best deals around, I followed a lot of different blogs and websites.  Then I figured out that some were actually making money doing it.  It made sense that if they had ads on their site they were making money.   However, I didn’t completely understand how.

If you look at almost ANY website, profit or non-profit, there will be a Disclosure policy.  There’s one here on Green Bay Consumer, too and has been since the beginning.  It simply states that the owners of the site and Kristin and I may or may not be compensated for certain posts.  We also have ads on the right hand side of the site that help generate money.  We’ve always tried to be upfront about that.

If the owners of the site and Kristin and I really wanted to, we could monetize the snot out of this site and do a bunch of different things to make more money.    However, it’s not the main reason we do this.
