Group Rules

YOU CAN JOIN OUR FREE BLOGGING COMMUNITY HERE

Our FREE Facebook group is a place for bloggers to connect, share insight and advice, get answers to questions, boost blog traffic through daily promo threads, and support fellow entrepreneurs.

To keep this community positive, safe, and productive, we have a few rules that our members MUST follow. We do our best to keep it fair for everyone, and we enforce these rules daily.

If you break the rules once, you will be muted. If you break the rules twice, your post will be deleted. If you break the rules for the third time, you will be removed from our group. If you aren’t happy with the rules of our group, you are free to remove yourself at any time.

  1. NO LINKS ON THE MAIN WALL PLEASE

We do not allow members to post links on the main wall for any reason. This can lead to excessive self-promotion, and that is NOT what our group is about. We have plenty of opportunities for members to share what they’re working on through our daily promotion threads.

If you share a link on the main wall, your post will be deleted without warning.

***Group admins reserve the right to break our own rule if we have something that is helpful to share with our community.

  1. NO SHARING DIRECT AFFILIATE LINKS

We run this community free of charge and we work hard to provide a lot of free value to our members. One thing that makes this all possible is the affiliate income we earn from our posts, courses, and recommendations.

When you post direct affiliate links in our group, you are taking potential business away from us, and that’s not cool, Stars. That would be like walking into our place of business and trying to sell your products to our customers. That’s unacceptable, so please don’t do it.

If you are caught sharing DIRECT affiliate links at any time, you will be removed from our group without warning. Please do not try to be sneaky by offering to PM your affiliate link to other members.

***Note: if you have a blog post that is genuinely helpful to a fellow blogger that is asking for help, you are welcome to share that blog post in the comment section, even if the post contains affiliate links.

  1. NO SPAM OR SELF-PROMOTION

Do not post in this group asking people to “PM you for more info” and do not send PMs to people without permission. That is spammy and it takes away from the quality of this community. If you are caught doing this, you will be removed from our group.

Self-promotion is only allowed within our daily sharing threads for the designated platform, and the schedule is listed below. No self-promotion (with or without links) is allowed on the main wall or in comment replies unless it is requested by the original poster. Please do not promote your business OR services unless it is specifically requested. Again, this group is primarily for support and education, not promotion.

If you are caught promoting your business or services without the specific request, your post and/or comments will be deleted without warning. We don’t have time to message every single person that breaks the rules, so if your post gets deleted, re-read the rules and make sure you understand them. If your post was deleted, it probably went against our group rules.

PROMOTION SCHEDULE:

If you post in our daily promotion threads, you are expected to support and engage with ALL fellow bloggers (this means everyone in that thread).

FOLLOWING FACEBOOK RULES

Facebook has rules and regulations of their own, outside of our community rules. And they have been cracking down on spammy links and third-party tools that break their Terms of Use.

If you are following our group rules and your post STILL gets deleted, it’s probably because Facebook marked your comment as spam. We have no control over what Facebook does, but we do have a few recommendations to help you stay on their good side!

  1. Engage with others in a slow, natural way. Don’t hit “like” on 20 posts in a row. It’s better to like a few posts, comment on a few posts, take a break, and then come back. You can also use other reactions (love, laugh, sad, wow) to show Facebook that you’re a real person and not a spam bot.
  2. Don’t respond to every single person that you engage with. You don’t have to say “liked” or “followed” or “commented” every single time. You can just like their post to let them know you’ve engaged with their content. And mix it up with different comment responses as well, to let Facebook know you are a human making human comments.
  3. Don’t drop a bunch of links on the same day. It’s tempting to share your latest and greatest post in 50 promo groups on the same day, but Facebook will almost always mark you as spam and start deleting your posts. Use links sparingly and strategically. I personally participate in just a few of my favorite groups and only share links when it’s absolutely necessary.

SIDE NOTES:

  1. We want this group to be a positive place for bloggers, so please be kind and constructive at all times.
  2. These rules are subject to change at any time, and it’s your responsibility to check back on occasion to make sure you’re caught up.

With those things in mind, let’s make this group a positive and productive place to grow your blog and make money online!
