    2 questions:

    Are we allowed to add affiliate links in BHW posts ?


    Why doesn't BHW use viglink to add affiliate links ? I see other forums based on vBulletin use this tactic to get additional income. I guess the IM space is ripe for affiliate marketing and what better place than a forum where people create content and you get free money from it !-

    I think one of the reasons why BHW is so popular is because you're not going to find bullshit affiliate links every two sentences.

    4. AFFILIATE LINKS.

    Affiliate links are permitted only in the "Affiliate Programs" section of the forum, or in your signature. Affiliate links include links to your websites or blogs which redirect to an affiliate link. If you wish to let people know about a new website or program, create ONE thread in the Affiliate Programs forum and provide detailed information about the program, and include two links: one affiliate link and one non-affiliate link. You MUST give others the choice to sign up through your link. Also, do not try to circumvent the Terms by posting about an affiliate program, and requesting others to "PM" you for additional information. Such conduct is no different than affiliate link spam. Black Hat World reserves the right, but is not obligated, to remove your affiliate link, and to issue an infraction or implement a ban, upon notification of any violation of this Section 4.

    Yeah but that doesnt answer the second question..
    Is it purely a UX thing ? That you dont use viglinks to monetize this mammoth site ?

    DD makes more money than those viglinks offers and yeah it would be very bad when we will have links and links everywhere.

    That is an admin Q as that goes to the revenue aspect of BHW and the Mods are not involved in that.

    We just try to keep the ship steered in the right direction.
