3rd Planet Techies is focused more on dishing out quality contents that will benefit our readers than feeding bots with links and /or improving your website SERP and ranking.
We understand that – you need a decent authority for your domain and pages, but that shouldn’t be done at the expense of quality, trust and professionalism.
We decided to make this post public in order to scare aware some SEO link builders that are bent on sacrificing quality contents for junks, spam and links.
We get to reject loads of this almost on a daily basis, the most annoying of this category is the ones that sends in junk review and useless contents in order to get link to their client’s website and all that.
This guide is to help you figure the kind of post we can accept as a sponsored review, sponsored post, promotional content and /or advertorial.
Sponsored Reviews to us means – introducing a software, service, game, app and /or any other products to one of our editors to:

Introduce same to our readers, giving a honest review and opinion about it.
If you want us to publish a product review that is written by you, it is expected of you to allow us include somewhere in the post that this content was researched, written or submitted by someone else, this will let our readers know when they are reading a review from someone else and when it is an opinion shared by us.
