Advertising Disclosures

Softduit’s sites including staging-softduit.mystagingwebsite.com itself utilize many levels of advertising to help fund our operations, our free services and keep our rates low for direct client services.  Many of these advertisements are run through automated advertising networks such as Google Adsense, Chitika, Google Affiliates, VigLink, Linkshare, Shareasale, CJ.com, e-junkie, Cafe Press, Zazzle and many others.  Often these networks automatically place ads on our articles and pages.  In some cases they place ads there where no ad existed previously.  In other cases they might convert text that does not have a link into a link, and in others they may convert a link that we created into an affiliate link to the same destination but passing through their ad network where our organization receives a commission if a sale happens on the other end.

Given that any text or link may be connected to an advertisement or affiliate advertisement after the  fact by these large networks, all visitors to this site agree to these ad placements and should consider every link or banner a potential advertisement or affiliate link.  In return Softduit will continue to keep the content on this site free of charge or membership.

In some cases, we do specifically endorse and recommend certain  products that we have found professionally to be very useful to our own  company or  to other persons or companies that we have worked with.  This list varies from day to day and year to year.  The following list is simply provided as an example, but is not comprehensive.  Regardless, as mentioned above any hyperlink or banner on this site should be considered an endorsement from Softduit.  From time to time, automated ad networks such as Google Adsense/Adwords may allow  an advertiser to advertise on this site that we do not agree with or may prove to be offensive even.  In such a case, please feel free to contact us through  our contact page and highlight the offending  ad and  its destination url.  If we agree that it is offensive or not appropriate we will block it or remove it where we have the power to do that.  Google currently limits us to 200 blocks at a time and we cycle through this keeping the 200 maxed out at all times.  If we could block more we would.

Example List of products we really like.  In some cases we receive advertising or affiliate compensation from these firms, but not in all cases.  However, given the nature of our consulting service recommending useful tools and services it is unavoidable that we will benefit financially even when we recommend a great free service such as Cloudflare.  Cloudflare has no way of compensating us directly for this recommendation however we do benefit at times in the form of good will, thanks, social recommendations such as tweets, likes, reference articles, and potentially even installation work as consultants.  We recognize that we do not operate in a vacuum and look at our consulting services and supportive blog articles as subjective tools not as objective journalistic endeavors.  We are NOT objective.  We ARE subjective on purpose.
