How to Know that You are Violating The Sheriff’s Guidelines


An email was sent to our system inbox at PayU2Blog a few days ago. Many of my blogger friends asked me if I could give samples of the kind of work being discussed by the email. How can it be identified? How would they know if they are doing it wrong?

So, to give you an idea of what was discussed in the email; below are my own explanation and few samples of the said matter:

* copying content from other sources and placing it on their blog for our assignments

This means that you took an article from other sources such as free articles, posts from other blogs or sites and then you inserted the keyword assigned to you. The sample post below is from www.articlesfactory.com and the keyword assigned to you is diet pills. So, you just inserted the keyword (diet pills in red font) inside the post.

Sample: “Is carrying out of diet pills addictive? This is an argument which has been going on from quite a long time now. These days diet pills are sold at each and every market of the entire world. These diet pills prove to provide a controlled body posture to human beings…” (Source)

* placing the assignment link at the end separate from the content of the post

This means that you made a blog post and you placed the assignment link at the end of your post. The keyword is not related or part of the post.

Sample: Post. Post. Post. Post. Post. Post. Post. Post. Post. Post. Keyword.

* doing links for any p0rn, gamb/ing or other business that clients would find objectionable

This is self-explanatory. Do not make objectionable posts such as p0rn, gamb/ing and others.

* is found to be removing old assignment links from their blog

This is self-explanatory. Removing old paid posts are detestable. It is against the work ethics of a paid blogger.

So, if you did not do any of those violations above, then you should consider yourself safe. But if you did, I guess you should undo all the violations you have done.

By the way, you may wonder, do this kind of posts really exist? Well, the answer is yes because I saw many blogs doing this.

Above is just my own opinion regarding the said email. I am not claiming to be an expert.

ang daya mo,mommy! inunahan mo na naman ako,talagang great minds always think a lot lol! I was thinking of the same idea,kasi i was wondering how can a blogger do such things, napakadali na nga ng trabaho, dinadaya pa rin. Sabi nga sa bible, kung hindi ka mapapagkatiwalaan sa maliit na bagay, how much more sa malaki ,di bah?

@pehpot: I think are caught Mommy because I knew few bloggers that got their blogs suspended. 🙁

As for the post, OK lang to make a post about them but not compare them in an obvious manner to the companies they don’t like. 🙂
