Just Wondering Here

I am just wondering if anyone knows if we are allowed to write about certain websites that we have enjoyed and we would like to suggest them to our friends here. Sometimes, I find a website that I really enjoy and would love to introduce it to my users here on MyLot. So, if one of you or more than one of you know the actual answer to this question with 100% of certainty, I would love to hear from you. @GoAskAlice And thank you so kindly in advance.

I think we're not allowed to post links to sites that pay, money earning sites. There shouldn't be a problem sharing a friend's website. We post links to videos here all the time. I mention the name of sites without giving the link. If people are really interested they can look them up.

Thanks for answering, but just wonder if by "money earning sites", you mean sites like this one here. It is a website about gardening and foods and it is lovely. The name of the site is " A Garden For The House".

There is nothing in the guidelines about it. As I said, I talking about sites where you earn money. Just go for it @marlina.

I'd ask admin about this. Then you're on the safe side.

There seems to be a fair bit of discussion about other money sites, but no links. Looks as if you write about them, as long as there are no links. Having said Youtube is an obvious exception

II think referral links are not allowed. I saw that somewhere but can't recall exactly where.

@saulgoodman But it is not a referral link at all. It is a site that I enjoy and would like to share it with others.

I do not think there is anything wrong with you doing that.

@carebear29 , it is not a site about writing opps. It is a site about gardening and cooking.

Why not - as long as you don't provide a sign-up link where you would get credit if someone signs up. Many of us talk about other sites. I have written about Swagbucks and CrowdTap and Swmsuitsforall and others.

I am not sure, but it is in the rules not to post links that might lead the reader to other sites. Just ask the admin about this.

You can certainly write about other sites and you can (and preferably should) post a link to the main page of the site. What you must NOT do is to post a referral link, suggest that people enter a referral code or in any way encourage people to ask you to give them your referral link.

In that case, I might go for it. There is no referral link, it is just that sometimes I like some sites and would like to mention them here. Thanks.

I have heard it's not allowed but I think it's for earning sites. Not sure if that's what you want to tell everyone about or not.

I have no certainty, however, I would not do. However this is just a suggestion, you see .. Surely, here they are not accepted the referral-link!

I do not think that it's a violation, only referral links are not allowed. I have seen people adding the link to a website. I suggest to leave a personal message to Alex.

Yes, it is allowed. As per Community Guidelines,"if there is an article you would like others to see and discuss, then post a link to that article along with your own commentary."

Go ahead . . Tell us about those interesting web sites . . Just don't invite anyone to sign up. And don't forget to write/post a disclaimer below your post.

Yes, I will eventually, but right now, I am kind of lazy to write a post. I did a lot of physical stuff today and I just want to veg out, not thinking too much.

As long as there is no referral attached we can certainly recommend sites of interest.

No referral and it is not a "earning site" either.

It seems we are allowed to mentioned other sites. Some of us are writing on BlogBourne now If it is not okay for me to say this-someone will no doubt remove my statement here I think.

I see, but the site I want to mention is not a place to make money for people.
