TWITTER MUST NOT BAN SEOCLERKS. READ THIS!!!

I am writing this in respect to the banning of seoclerks links on Facebook and now, YouTube, though in the comment section. PLEASE and PLEASE, Let us be very careful about the way we spread our seoclerks affiliate links across twitter, LinkedIn and other social network sites so as not to warrant any BAN from them due to spamming.
All i am requesting is your cooperation.
Though it is very unfortunate that Facebook which happens to be the biggest social site is not longer accepting seoclerks link and even youtube in the comments section , let us not allow TWITTER to follow suite too.
As we post our affiliate links with the intent of gaining affiliates, lets us not do it too excessively but to be very careful. with the cooperation of everyone here, we can avoid twitter banning seoclerks links
Thank you
Chetaseo.

Yes Lynne i agree with you and well said. I think the main problem is poor business practice by some of the sellers here on Seoclerks. We need to come together and try and resolve the spamming issue. We need to educate new sellers on how to market within Seoclerks using bumps, category feature, and other ways so that they don't resort to spam. Facebook is so yuppy they dont allow anyone to do anything anymore its becoming more of a dictatorship over their. They dont want other people selling Facebook likes or followers and its not just us its everyone. I use Drop Box to get around these types of bans. How you say? This is very easy all you have to do is paste your link into notepad and save it. Once you have done this upload it to drop box and create a share link. Now just share the DB link and when people click it the will see your Seoclerks link.

As Lynne and other pointed out SC link is not banned from Youtube, no twitter for that matter, I understand your concerns regarding the affiliate link on social networks. Spamming the hell out of it won't help anyone and will actually make you lose in the long run because once the domain is banned you also won't be able to promote your affiliate.

I don't think many marketplaces had this problem because not many marketplaces have such a dedicated community and active users willing to do anything to get their message out there.

Hard to predict what could happen with Twitter regarding Seoclerks affiliate links. There is so many people (thousands of us) promoting affiliate links daily, so even if we do few a day, it's going to be many. But yes we have to ask everyone in this community to NOT SPAM their followers with excessive promoting / tweeting, so we can stay there free to post such links. Hopefully everyone will take his part in this saving Seoclerks from banning and take this seriously!!!

Exactly sir, i just hope everyone will comply to this directive and maybe the seoclerks staff can even be sending out broadcast messages on a regular basis noticing sellers and buyers about posting thier affiliate or any other links that relates to seoclerks for i think this will go a long way in heling out most esp those that are not even visiting this commuity forum. thanks for your response.

So it's not just SEOClerks affiliate links then, it's all and any kind of affiliate link? And it's only in the comment section? How do they know which links are affiliate links or not? I get that some affiliate links just look like blatant affiliate links. But some aren't so easy to tell. Some links look like affiliate links for example, but they aren't affiliate links. Like those long complex product links with filters in the URL etc. Or does this happen for all shortened links too? What about redirects? I mean, I have a redirect URL I use on my site. This one http://seoclerk.xyz/seo/joinseoclerk.php which I've never posted to YouTube in a comment on a video. I'll have to try it and let you know if it accept it or not. But if it does, then that is the perfect work-around for you all. Do it like that then it doesn't even look like an affiliate link. It just looks like a link to a page on my site.

But yeah, some good points raised here regarding the use of posting links in comments on YouTube videos. If YouTube has done this they would have done it for a very legitimate reason. Considering YouTube has been going for 20+ years and not done it until now. I'm sure that the SEOClerks links posted to YouTube video comments only makes up a very very small percentage compared to all the other affiliate links that people post for other things, services and affiliate networks so I doubt they've done this just because of SEOClerks.

As for Twitter, I can't see how they would do this as let's face it, the majority of people that use Twitter are affiliates and are forever dropping shortened affiliate links in tweets. But if they are at least, there will always be some kind of work-around anyway. Even if it means sending them to another page on your site or something where the affiliate link is. Not the best work-around but a work-around none the less.

Maybe that work-around is even better where a visitor clicks on the link and he is taken to a site where he can access the affiliate link. i think that will be much better. And i agree with you that the seoclerks youtube links make up a small percentage of the total affiliate links all in youtube but we still need to be very careful.
but i will be awaiting your reply concerning that new link you posted in blue that you said you want to try.
Thanks for your response.

Mike I used link shorteners like bitly and I also have Pretty Link that I use too... when I use these the link in comments still gets blocked.

I was previously able to add affiliate links into comments, it is only recently that I have not been able to. I really think that Youtube is trying to clean up all the spam and like I say I am pleased personally.

I don't like that people keep spamming my channel, so I actually approve of this change because it makes it so much easier, I don't have to clean up my comments!

Chetaseo you have highlighted a very important theme here and it is not just about SeoClerks - it is about the way all affiliate marketers go about things. There is a right way to market and a wrong way. Spamming is never the right way and it leads to more problems than the social networks tightening up on affiliate links!

I am personally so tired of people spamming me on social networks, via email and even texting and whatsapp'ing affiliate links to my phone. It gives affiliate marketing as a whole a really bad name!

And just to clarify, it is not SeoClerks affiliate links specifically that are being targeted. I have not been able to add affiliate links for a few other websites in replies to comments on my own videos!

It is a real problem yeah, and the only way to prevent it happen is to make sure not to post/advertise too much affiliate urls, even though they're just advertising it, Twitter filters will recognize it as spam in most cases and then will block it. People simply should understand that everything has a limit, and to stop spamming as spamming it's not the right way to promote your affiliate url, nobody will get benefits from doing that. In the end it's not that they'll block the url who is spamming, it's the original domain that risk to get banned. STOP spamming.

Thanks so much for your response to this. i just hope that this message goes round to all sellers and even buyers here on seoclerks so that we dont risk twitter ban but the big question here is how are we goin to monitor or regulate it because definitely some persons will still go ahead and spam. that is where my worry is.
