I generally make money when you get a product through my site when you click on certain links, but I don’t let that cloud my opinion of that product or service. Because I receive compensation from certain third-party advertisers it has no affect on my decision to include a link or to state my opinion about it. When I come across a product or service that I like or have found to be helpful I include a link to it and then I search out if that product or service offers an affiliate program. If it does, fine. If it does not, then that is fine also. My marketing partners don’t review, approve or endorse my content or opinions. It’s accurate to the best of my knowledge when it’s posted.
In a nutshell, if I find a product or service useful I include it, with or without compensation.
