What is an Archived Link?

In most cases, affiliate marketing campaigns do not run forever. There are some exceptions, but most advertisers will stop trying to promote their product or service at some point. An archived link is an affiliate link that does not generate any more commissions. It ensures that the advertiser doesn’t send payments to the affiliate or the network for any leads that are generated.

Archived links can be beneficial. Typically, the link still works and can be used by your visitors to check out the product, company, or service that you were initially promoting. As a result, you don’t have to take down your post. You can keep the post up and continue to provide your audience with valuable information and build credibility.

Of course, you’re also free to take out links or delete the post entirely. Once the link has been archived, you are no longer responsible for promoting the product.

My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.
