    Just a quick question about this rule because I see some people doing otherwise

    Affiliate links are only allowed in the Affiliate Programs section of  the forum, or in your signature. This includes 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 info about the program and include 2  links: one affiliate link and one non-affiliate link. You MUST give  them the choice to sign up under you or not. Also, do not try to avoid  our rules by making a post about an affiliate program you found, where  you ask people to PM you for the info. This is no different than  affiliate link spam. If we are notified of any violation of these rules,  your affiliate link may be removed and an infraction or ban will be  given at our discretion.
    What i've seen is people talking about a method they have used to make money/increase SEO and mentioned something they've used and provided a link to the product (with AFF link) and also said heres one without aff link, however this is not in the affiliate part of the forum.

    Is that an ok thing to do in a thread?
