Affiliate Blogging In An Ethical Manner

I have had discussion with fellow bloggers many times on the topic of affiliate marketing via our blogs, paid posting, and paid reviews. Many times the question of ethics comes up and whether or not a blogger promoting products and services can be done in an ethical manner. As an affiliate marketer and a blogger I regularly post about products and services with which I have a relationship. I also do paid posting and reviews. I do have a disclosure policy in place and link to it from my main page.

I came across an article today on this very topic and so as not to duplicate I will link over to the article and let you read it. It is on Blogging Tips and the article is Ethics of Affiliate Blogging. The only thing I might have a small issue with from this article is linking to the disclosure policy in each post. Many of the paid posting opps want site wide disclosure only and this in post disclosure would eliminate some very lucrative offers. Another recent article on this topic, Can You Make Money Online Without Lying?, can be found over at Entrepreneurs-Journey.com Anyway let me know what your thoughts are on the topic in general and as it relates to this blog.

later all and have a profitable and productive blogging day
