I have dozens of requests every day to place ads and links on my site, to write articles for it and to buy the site itself.
This page is specifically dedicated to setting out a clear policy on those issues.
I personally write all the content for this site.
The articles are written after carefully researched assessment of all available peer-reviewed studies as well as my own qualifications and experience over a period of more than thirteen years of backyard chicken keeping.
For that reason, I do not accept any requests to write articles for the site, no matter how well intentioned.
Any such requests, whether made by email or by filling in my contact form, will not be successful.
I have a successful partnership with Mediavine who place all the ads on this site, apart from those affiliate products I choose to place myself.
I will not accept any requests from any other ad agencies to place ads on this site.
I do not accept requests for "one off" product ads, for example as a link in one of my articles, even if the link were to be "no-follow".
I am prepared to consider requests for affiliate product links. I have a list of my chosen affiliate links on this page.
If you have a business which you would consider to be a useful joint enterprise, please feel free to send me details on my contact form.
I will need to know:
Please note that all product links, including affiliate links, are "no-follow", as per Google's requirements.
I link to articles and websites which I have assessed as being of exceptionally high quality and of specific advantage to my site visitors.
I agree to virtually no links to other sites, and they will always be "no follow" links.
Please do not ask for links unless you are sure the website is of the required quality, and would be happy with no followed links.
In that case, please note that I will check your global ranking and will not accept links to websites with a considerably lower ranking than this one.
For respecting my policies.
