I try to be as forthright as possible about affiliate links and so forth. But I haven’t felt it necessary to point out that every Amazon link is an affiliate link because I figure people already know. However, after reading Brandchannel‘s post, it appears that failure to do so may violate the FTC’s new blogger guidelines. I think the easiest thing for me to do is create a tag for “Affiliate & Sponsored Links.” I will continue to disclose such links in the posts themselves, but this will give me an added safety net where the FTC is concerned in case I forget.
