    I just had an idea for a full disclosure affiliate marketing blog but I'm wondering if the Affiliate Networks would get upset? Obviously I will ask them tomorrow, but since It's a Sunday and I can't get in touch with my AM I thought maybe I would bounce this idea off of you guys.

    Basically I would setup some sort of routine that would scrape my earnings 4 times a day on various networks I have accounts with and post the earnings to my blog. At the top of the site there would be my Total earnings which would be taken from about 5 different networks and added together. This way everyone that follows the methods on this blog knows that I'm not making up bonus earnings and it will also let them know that the methods I blog are actually making money.

    Do you think this would get me in trouble with the networks or would I be okay? I would appreciate any insight

    The only way I think it would get you in trouble with the affiliate networks is if your methods you post on your blog aren't "legit" and BH.

    If anything you are advertising their affiliate networks and I'm assuming you're encouraging people to join them as well, which in turn will make them more money I'd assume.

    Yeah I would definitely keep it White hat. The only thing I'm not sure about is the network getting mad from me scraping the data off of their site and posting earnings. But I will post back when I get an official answer.

    just ask your am for each network you are on. better safe than sorry. im sure they will allow you because you will be able to bring them more affiliates.
