[resolved] Sponsored Links?? (8 posts)

    Hi. I have been reading a bit about sponsored links with regard to this plugin and I'm concerned about taking visitors off my website as I don't condone any type of advertising. I have not yet come across this problem as I'm still developing my site in my local host. Is there a way to turn this feature off for the future? I have grown to love this plugin and would be disappointed if this was not possible. I would much prefer to pay $10 for this plugin and not have to worry about this.

    Thank you very much for reading.

    I think I found the solution..
    Using your other plugin (the one with over 700k downloads) will not include sponsored links, right?

    Thanks

    After doing more reading I found this is not the case.
    You still offer "related links" to other sites in your network, right?
    I only want MY own posts showing up or otherwise I am going to choose another plugin. Can you clarify this for me please?
    I understand your in it to make money, but I think I speaks for many people when I say I would rather do a one off payment on codecanyon or something as opposed to getting it free and displaying your external "related links" within your network.

    Hey, sorry for the lack of responsiveness during the weekend!

    No, our plugin does absolutely not include any promoted links in your related posts (or anywhere on your blog, for that matter). This option is only reserved for big publishers & bloggers whose websites reach high click-through rates and whose page-views are higher than usual.

    It goes without saying that we compensate their clicks in cash, as well as that we always inform them before we are going to turn on their promoted content. The option of turning off the traffic exchange program (for good) is available to the user at all times in his Z-Dashboard.

    Also — the promoted content is always relevant to the blog post where it is appearing, since it's most important to us that we keep relevancy at the highest level with our service.

    Again — sorry for the late response and please do let me know if there's anything that is not absolutely clear. I'm here to help!

    Take care & have a nice day!

    Best,
    Silvo

    I am uninstalling this plugin as this inserts 3rd party text link to my website. They try to be smart by only showing the link to guest and bots only.
    Here are some proofs: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/534/bcoi.jpg/

    Hey @sadek409, thanks for reaching out with this and please accept our sincerest apologies for not responding any sooner on this matter, since it is also of great concern for us as well!

    The thing is, those links are in no way inserted by our plugin. I can assure you this! Even if you look closely at those screenshots, you can clearly see that those "RELATED ITEMS" below that "happy wheels" text is not a part of your related posts.

    I am more than happy to help you out to get to the bottom of this, since we really cannot stand these accusations. Would you please be so kind and provide us with the link to the blog in question, so that we could have a closer look? Also — has this link disappeared after you uninstalled our plugin?

    Let me know what's up & I'll gladly help you out! Take care & I'm looking forward to your reply!

    Best,
    Silvo
