PPC Affiliate Guidelines
Below is a list of guidelines regarding the PPC University affiliate program:
1. Websites approved for use in the PPC University affiliate program
Most websites qualify to participate in the PPC affiliate programs. However, we reserve the right to refuse or revoke membership at any time if we determine that your website contains objectionable material. Your site must also be fully functional, with original content. Spam or scraper sites will not be approved. If your site is still in its development stage, please email us with additional information about your planned site, or please apply after it’s completed.
2. Discount and deal-type websites
We are not offering public discount codes at this time. Should you operate a coupon or deal-type website, please be clear in the “Description” section of the as to how you intend to promote PPC University.
3. Promoting PPC University without a website
Although promotion through websites is the most popular way our affiliates promote PPC University, we recognize that different markets have different needs. If you do not include a website to review, please make sure to include details regarding how you plan to market PPC University in the “Description” section of the
4. Using the PPC University name in a domain name
Affiliates are not authorized to use the brand name “PPC University”, its variations and misspellings in a top-level domain (eg. www.ppc-university.com), a sub-domain, social media profile, social media page and social media group URLs. This is to prevent the dilution of our brand in SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages), on social media and through PPC advertising campaigns.
5. Promoting affiliate links on Twitter with the hashtag #PPCUniversity
While we encourage our affiliates to engage and participate in PPC University-related discussions using the Twitter hashtag #PPCUniversity, #MyPPCsillyFace spam links that include an obscured affiliate link are prohibited.
6. Using affiliate links on Pinterest
While we encourage you to pin our content to your boards, undisclosed affiliate links on PPC University-related Pinterest pins are strictly prohibited.
7. Buying PPC University services using your own affiliate link
As a general rule, affiliates are not eligible for commissions on purchases made through your own affiliate link. However, we recognize there may be situations where your business makes sales in such a way that this process is preferable. Since we monitor transactions for self-sales, we ask that you get in touch with us before you begin using your own links for sales so we can set up an arrangement that meets your processing needs.
8. Violation of PPC affiliate guidelines
If you have a concern that you may be violating any of our guidelines, please contact us. Chances are, we can find a way to work through this without any issue. That said, affiliates found to be in violation of the affiliate program guidelines will forfeit commissions relating to either the specific transaction in violation or all commissions assigned. Excessive violations will result in termination of the violating party’s affiliate account. We’d really prefer not to go there, so please get in touch with us if you have any questions whatsoever. We’re happy to help however we can.
