What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing where businesses reward affiliates for each visitor or customer brought in by the affiliate's marketing efforts. In simpler terms, when you click on a link on our site and make a purchase, we may receive a commission from the company whose product or service you bought. This commission comes at no additional cost to you.
How We Earn From Affiliate Marketing Programs
As you navigate our website, you may find links leading to products or services we recommend. These are often affiliate links. If you're not familiar with the term, it might sound complex, but it's really quite simple.
This section explains how we incorporate affiliate marketing into our operations, our rigorous process for recommending products, and how this model supports the free, high-quality content we provide for you.
Our process of recommending products or services begins with thorough research and testing. We provide honest, unbiased reviews and guides and only recommend products or services we believe are of high quality and value to our readers. If we wouldn’t use it ourselves, we won’t recommend it.
Once we recommend a product, we check if the company offers an affiliate program. If they do, we sign up. If they don't, we will still recommend the product if we believe it's the best option. The potential to earn a commission does not impact our review process or our decision to recommend a product.
You will be taken to the product or service provider's website when you click on an affiliate link on our site. If you make a purchase, we may receive a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you, and in some cases, our affiliate relationships allow us to offer you discounts.
We do our best to clarify when a link is an affiliate. However, it's safe to assume that any links leading you to products or services are affiliate links, that we may receive compensation from.
How Affiliate Marketing Supports Us
The revenue we generate from affiliate marketing helps us keep our content free and accessible. It allows us to invest in high-quality research and testing, maintain our website, and pay our dedicated team of writers, researchers, and website developers.
Our Commitment to Unbiased Content
Our primary goal at HideMyTraffic is to help our readers make informed digital security and privacy decisions. We understand the trust you place in us, and we never take it for granted.
Our editorial team does not operate independently of our business team. However, business decisions cannot override editorial decisions under any circumstances. Our writers cannot accept affiliate partners' monetary contributions directly. They prioritize providing honest, unbiased, and thorough content that primarily benefits our readers.
Our Promise to Our Readers
We only recommend products or services that we believe will add value to our readers. We thoroughly test and research each product we recommend and provide honest and detailed reviews to help you make informed decisions.
We promise to always prioritize the interests of our readers over our potential to earn commissions. We will never recommend a product solely because it offers us an affiliate commission, and we will never compromise the integrity of our content for financial gain.
