FTC Disclosure Compliance Rules
The Federal Trade Commission updated their new rules for Disclosure Compliance in 2015. This rule has been established to assure that readers or viewers of web media are conscious if the publisher or blogger is sponsored, approved or partnered with a different company. The readers need to be aware of the content publisher is generating money by sharing a product or link. In consent with the FTC protocols, please consider the following about links and posts on this site: Most of the links on 10rankers.com are affiliate links from which I receive a small compensation from the sale of various products.
What are affiliate links?
When a reader clicks on an affiliate link placed on 10rankers.com to purchase a product, the reader purchases the product from the seller directly( Not from 10rankers.com) i.e. the purchases are made on external affiliate company websites.
Some Companies, Mainly Amazon pay 10rankers a small commission or other compensation for
assisting to pull the customers to their website.
The costs or prices are precisely same for the readers whether they buy through an affiliate link or not-
affiliate link. The purchase of the product via affiliate or non-affiliate is independent of the actual cost of the product and does not affect its cost for the reader or visitor.
10Rankers uses two fundamental types of affiliate programs;
1. Amazon affiliate links
10Rankers.com is a competitor in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising
a program designed to contribute a contribute a way for website owners to make money by linking to
Amazon.com and affiliated sites, including other websites that may have been affiliated with Amazon
Service LLC Associates Program.
2. Product affiliate links
When an item affiliate link is clicked and the item is bought by a reader or a visitor, then I will receive a
the fraction of the sale or some other form of compensation.
The prices or costs are completely independent of affiliate links or original links. Affiliate links are not “pay
per click” so I won’t receive the compensation if the same reader buys twice or more.
What about sponsored content?
I don’t publish sponsored contents. I prefer original, unbiased reports. But, if a company requested to
publish sponsored content on 10Rankers.com. I would have revealed it at the beginning of the post.
The reality is that I prefer products I use myself or that I would suggest it to family and friends. The
reader’s purchase helps reinforce my research struggles. Thank you very much! I appreciate you!
