Last but not least, Pagely recently wrote an article about WordPress hosting reviews, which was against the use of affiliate links in reviews. While we’ve certainly seen affiliate links in content without value or in skewed reviews, we wanted to take the opportunity to iterate our affiliate policy. We only promote products we find useful (or use ourselves) as affiliates, and usually don’t sign up for affiliate programs until after using a product. Our guarantee is that our articles are unbiased and honest, and we disclose affiliate links if included. If you want to check out our own hosting recommendations, you can see this article.
Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend!
