Another Dumb Question

Okay, I should know this by now, but I'm still confused. All of the other sites I have written for didn't allow us to promote products. Google did that for us. So here goes:

What's the purpose of eBay? To promote the items we sell on there?

Zazzle -- the same thing?

How does VigLink work. I registered with them, but don't see their link anywhere. Do I have to do anything to get them on my page?

Thank you Katie. So I'm assuming that if we write an article about one of VigLink's products, it will show up on our page and when clicked, we get paid.

Is that correct?

Brenda - on Ebay and Zazzle you can link to anything you want and you will get a commission if somebody buys.

Have you seen our Viglink tutorial?

Got it. I had read that before, but I was having an ADD moment at the time and couldn't focus.

Hi Brenda,

If your using a crowdsourcing site like, Squidoo, HubPages, Wizzley, Inforbarrel and similar sites. It is usually as easy as applying the appropriate module or widget (for eBay, Amazon, Vidlink, Zazzle, etc) into your article with the related 'product' and most often Google Adsense is as easy as putting your USERID into the appropriate section of your user based account on that site.

On your own sites, its a little trickier as you will most often have to put in your affiliate code with your affiliation ID into your webpage you want to display an 'ad' or link for commission on.

Please also bear in mind there are never, ever any dumb questions. Please don't ever feel you are naive for not knowing something. You will quickly discover, especially a site like here, where there are experts in one field, they also will not be aware or skilled in other areas.

This is why I like forums and collaboration. Anyone can ask a question and get an answer.

But that answer may put you on a path of self discovery Smile
