Z EDITOR QUESTIONS
How does it work ?
You just need to create an account, you can both order links (advertisers) and sell links (publishers).
You must then submit your site and prove ownership (wordpress plugin to install or a head tag to add or an .html file to add to the root of your site.
We will validate your site as soon as possible and it will then be available on linksgarden.
Do you validate all sites ?
No, we scrupulously inspect all the sites submitted to us and will only take those that meet our criteria: in terms of metrics, in terms of theme, in terms of design, etc. For the time being, we give priority to sites that we do not currently offer on our platform and for which there is a demand.
At what price should I offer my site ?
For the moment, we do not have enough publisher data to offer you recommended prices. This is a feature that will be available in the coming months. Our advice is to set the price that seems fairest to you. Obviously, the lower the price, the more sales you will make.
Regarding sales on existing pages, our algorithm will calculate a price according to the position of your page, the difficulty of the keyword, etc. However, you can set a minimum sale price, regardless of the position or difficulty of the keyword.
Will my site be visible ?
Linksgarden offers a catalogue with visible sites provided you have enough “visibility tokens”. Each new account allows you to see about ten sites out of several thousand, if you don’t order, you won’t be able to see any other sites.
However, you can check an option when adding your site so that it is never fully visible. It will then be in the form of *******.tld, but you will make fewer sales.
How long does it take for you to validate the addition of my site on the platform ?
We should be able to validate domain names within 7 days, however, at launch, this may take longer due to the number of sites that have already been submitted.
How much will I earn for each item (or other product) sold on Linksgarden.com ?
You set the amount you want to earn for each link sold without content, whether it is a sponsored article, an existing article or a home link. When you set your price, we display your actual earnings in a small message.
Why is my balance still at 0 or has it not increased ?
After selling a link, there is a 30 day delay before your account is credited.
When do I get paid ?
As soon as you have accumulated 100€ on your partner balance. You will be able to send us an invoice by email: email@example.com with your bank details.
8 rue Leopold Sédar Senghor
We validate and make payments at the end of the month, around the 25th.
Can I exchange my partner balance for credits ?
You can transform your balance into credits (including partners) or exclusive credits (excluding partners) with a bonus that you can use to buy links on our platform.
What do you do with the fees that the advertiser pays when buying a link ?
The fees range from 20% to 40% of the price paid excluding editorial. They are used to pay for the development of the platform, credit card fees (stripe/paypal), salaries for: the cost of linking, campaign monitoring, ensuring that sponsored articles purchased stay for at least 2 years, dispute management, marketing costs to ensure that you will sell more and more links, including advertising or affiliation, etc.

Do I have to prove that we own the sites ?

3 possibilities, via a meta tag in the <head>, via an .html file to upload via FTP, and if your site is under WordPress, you can validate the ownership with our plugin by adding your public and secret key.
I have a lot of sites, can you take care of the addition as a partner ?
Yes, you can contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or via the chat.
I would like to contact the advertiser who placed an order for my site :
