Before calling you a spammer again, I will at least say that it’s nice you’ve contributed something to the WP community, but…
This isn’t a directory. This forum already does what your site does–we’re customers. If we’re helpful and someone wants to sign up, at least they can choose from a bunch of promo codes and save money, rather than unknowingly click a masked affiliate link.
Why should someone click away from Dreamhost’s site, just to click back again from your site and give you $97?
It would have been just as easy for you to disclose it as an affiliate link as it was for us to. How you finance your sites isn’t our problem.
No, I’m suggesting you submit your site to DIRECTORIES or pay for some PPC advertising–not spam a customer-to-customer forum for a host that you’re not a customer of.
Useful or not, you have a site that isn’t hosted here, makes money with clicks, and doesn’t offer anything that isn’t already here. Which part of that doesn’t resemble spam?
Surely, you have to see the problem there would be if everyone that thought they had a useful site plugged it here.
It would also be different if you were a contributing member of the forum that actually helped people here and maybe had it as a sig link, but you registered to submit a link. That’s not what the forum is form. I don’t know of any forums that find that acceptable.
Save up to $96 at Dreamhost with ALMOST97 promo code (I get $1).
Or save $97 with THEFULL97.
