Websites that publish reviews or recommendations often make disclosures along the lines of:

We receive commissions from some companies, but we are unbiased and would never let financial incentives impact the content we publish.
In most cases, these disclosures are disingenuous. Even when disclosures of this sort are meant sincerely, they’re rarely accurate.

I’m not impartial. I aim to avoid letting financial incentives affect how I view companies, but I won’t always get that right. If you think conflicts of interest are adversely affecting the quality of my content, please let me know.

Enhanced Exposure & Sponsored Placements

The quantity of content I publish about a company can be impacted by the financial incentives involved. For example, I’m more likely to take the time to write a blog post about a promotion run by a company I’m partnered with than I am to write content about a similar promotion offered by a company I’m not partnered with.

Additionally, I sometimes run sponsored placements on sections of my site. I try to mark placements either explicitly or with symbols (e.g., ) that trigger a tooltip when clicked.
