About Affiliate Links

Here at NerdOfLinux’s Tech Blog, we use affiliate links to help fund this site. An affiliate link is a link that allows the destination website know who sent that visit(often by setting a cookie in your browser). When you make a purchase, the website we sent you to generally gives us a commission for sending them a new customer. However, we do our best to only use affiliate links to products and services we would use, or in many cases, do use ourselves.

These DO NOT cost you anything extra; in fact, you often get a discount or even free credit.


We use affiliate links to help cover the costs of this site, and hopefully make a bit of money 🙂 . This allows us to run this (amazing, might I add) website, without resorting to cramming five hundred ads per page, or cryptomining in the background without your consent. We want the user experience to be as good as we can make it, and we strive to create high quality content.

As previously stated, we do our best to not let affiliate programs dictate which services we recommend. With that being said, you’re probably going to wonder why we have affiliate links for competing services. The answer is that not everyone wants to use the same service as us. That’s ok, and that’s why competition exists. Another reason is because some services we link to aren’t within our interest zones. Writing about and testing out the service is fun, but not every service is used day to day. Some of our readers may be interested in that service, and that’s why offer links.

It’s a win/win situation: you potentially save money, and we get funding.

Thank you for your support.
