1. What is Affiliate Link?
Affiliate links are general links, like your blog post link. But when somebody clicks on it. It will redirect the clicker to somewhere else.Where if the person buys something. the commission of that product will go to the account of the person who posted the affiliate link.There are a lot of ways to get the commission amount.We will cover that in some other post.
2. What did an Affiliate link do for our Website?
An affiliate link on your site will generate a handsome commission for you. It actually depends on your website niche, you affiliate product type, and most especially traffic on your site.There are some websites which are getting a lot of money from affiliate marketing only For Example – One of top India’s blogger Harsh Agrawal (ShoutMeLoud). He is making up to 5-10 Lakh only by Affiliate marketing.
Actually, It is a bonus Income from your site.But keep in mind Google also tracks your affiliate income from your website.So Now the real question.
3. Does Website Affiliate Links Affect Google Adsense Approval Process?
Yes, somehow it affects the Google Adsense Approval Process.The specific reason behind this is “google think you already have a source of income”. As you know Adsense approval is not a robotic task. It is done manually by the appointed people in google.So, It actually depends on them.They will approve your site for monetization or not.
Ideally, affiliate Marketing links will not affect your Google Adsense application approval. Adsense ads are content-based (According to the niche of your website) while affiliates are specific ads. You should not have a problem for as long as you don’t mistakenly add another content-based ad.
4. Can we use affiliate links with Google Adsense Ads on our website?
Yes, Of course, you can, But don’t do it before the Adsense approval if you really need an Adsense approval. If you don’t need then it’s up to you. Once you got your Adsense approval then you can use affiliate links to it. Google has no problem with this.But, Google will always keep tracks of your Affiliate purchases and Income form that.
