In 2015, the Federal Trade Commission released their new rules for Disclosure Compliance. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, Youtube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed, or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link or product.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines and Amazon.com guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site: Any/all of the links on carpetcleaning.vip are affiliate links from which I receive a small compensation from sales of certain items.
What are affiliate links?
Purchases are made on external affiliate company websites: When a reader clicks on an affiliate link located on carpetcleaning.vip or carpetcleaning.vip/blog to purchase an item, the reader buys the item from the seller directly (not from VIP Carpet Cleaning ). Amazon and/or other companies pay VIP Carpet Cleaning a small commission or other compensation for promoting their website or products through their affiliate program.
Prices are exactly the same for you if your purchase is through an affiliate link or a non-affiliate link. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link.
I use two main types of affiliate programs:
1. Amazon affiliate links. (VIP Carpet Cleaning)
VIP Carpet Cleaning is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon properties including, but not limited to, amazon.com, Google Adsense, Viglinks, , or amazonwireless.com. Amazon offers a small commission on products sold through their affiliate links. Each of your purchases via our Amazon affiliation links supports VIP Carpet Cleaning at no additional cost to you.
Amazon and the Amazon logo are trademarks of Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates.
If a blogger links to an Amazon product (with a special code for affiliates embedded in the link), and a reader places an item in their “shopping cart” or goes to the Amazon.com checkout page through that link within 24 hours of clicking the link, the blogger gets a small percentage of the sale. Amazon links are not “pay per click.” If you click on the product link and stay around Amazon and purchase something else, however, I will get commission on that sale.
Anytime you see a link that looks like http://amazon.com/…… or amazonwireless.com/…. or adclick.g.doubleclick.net… or www.googleadservices.com/…
it is an Amazon affiliate link or Adsense or something similar I am making money off of to support this website. In fact, ANY link that leaves this site is probably an affiliate link. As we say here in the south: ” I’m just sayin’…”
2. Product affiliate links.
These affiliate links work the same way: if you click the link and buy the product, then the blogger gets a percentage of the sale or some other type of compensation. Things like e-book bundles, e-courses, and online summit packages are usually affiliate links, also. Again, prices are not different if you use these affiliate links. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. These links are not “pay per click.”
I do not write sponsored posts. I want to bring you real, un-biased information. However, if a post is sponsored by a company, I will disclose this clearly in the beginning of the post. As for my social media pages where I speak or post blog links to Amazon & other affiliate links which are posted on my site for product recommendations, I usually don’t specify it is an affiliate link simply because , as far as I know, posting links outside my website or sending them in an email is against the Amazon affiliate rules and they will remove my account.
Your purchase helps support my work in bringing you real information about the coolest home cleaning supplies, home services and news
