Where should I put affiliate links?

This post may contain affiliate links so I earn a commission. Please read my disclosure for more info.

You can put them anywhere you want on your site. But here are 10 pretty good places to do it. Watch the video on YouTube or keep reading.

So, where are the best places for affiliate links?

  1. Put links in the FIRST paragraph of your review. Most people don’t read the whole article so they might not see your affiliate links at all. The best affiliate sites have a quick pitch at the very beginning of each article.
  2. User Impression – ‘See real reviews on Amazon’ or the relevant platform. People want to see other opinions from real users and owners. So this is a clever way to get people to click over to place the cookie, while also providing the exact information they’re looking for.
  3. Captions of Images – People usually look at the images and captions on the page.
  4. Tables – The product name in a table should be an affiliate link. Like pictures, people look at tables since it’s a great way to present data in a compact way.
  5. Tables – “See an image” – People want to see the product, but sometimes it’s not visually appealing to have small images in a table. Plus, if you put large images in a table the mobile version might not look good. So you can use curiosity to your advantage and put text in the table to “see the image” using an affiliate link.
  6. End of Post – If a visitor scrolled to the end, great job keeping their attention. So give them one last call to action and recommend a product. It will save them from the need to scroll up and find a link to the product they want.
  7. Images – People look at images and try to click them so make them affiliate links. I like to put a caption to let them know what will happen when they click the image.
  8. Text Call To Action – Some people find buttons more sales-y and aggressive so a softer call to action with text is a way to give people another option.

Remember not to put too many affiliate links — Google and Amazon won’t like that very much.
