My comment isn’t appearing?
We moderate all comments, so please be patient until yours is approved. We do this to protect our readers from spam and other undesirable comments.
Do you accept paid content?
No. In the past, we did accept a small number of advertorial articles for a short time. This small amount of content is clearly marked as an advertorial or sponsored article. We no longer accept any paid articles or links due to the poor quality of some of the content.
What forms of advertising do you have on the site?
The site uses display adverting and affiliate promotions. Google Adsense provides display ads, and they are labelled as advertisements.
We include affiliate links to products and services in some articles, and we may earn a commission if you purchase from these links. We only promote products and services that we either use regularly or have thoroughly tested.
Can I use your content on my blog or website?
Yes, you are free to re-use or quote any content from our site. However, we would appreciate it if you include a credit and link to the particular article on Just Publishing Advice to identify your source.
