Of Course there are Rules, Right?
You guessed it! We’ve had many people express interest in contributing to the blog, but many of them wanted to do so only if they could use their articles to link to their websites. As we’re looking to maintain a high standard for the blog, this caused a problem for us. We’ve established the following rules as a result of dealing with that fiasco:
- All articles are to be used once and only once. You may not reproduce the article on your own blog or any other article websites. Doing so not only detracts from the blog, but having multiple copies of the same article creates a duplicate content issue.
- Authors may not link to their blogs in articles. If you’re referencing news or articles from other bloggers, you must attribute your sources, but we will not allow links back to your own blogs. This rule eliminates the creation of fluff posts with the sole intention of promoting another site.
- Authors may not post any affiliate links or referral codes in their posts. Any author links must be approved by BiggerPockets, Inc.
- Images included in your posts must not be larger than 550 pixels. Additionally, any images must be original or those from the public domain. You are expected to properly attribute images that you use.
- Authors are expected to follow copyright laws and not infringe on others rights. This means no stealing of other’s articles or other works.
- Authors will be entitled to a bio below their articles and a link on the blog sidebar, provided they are regular weekly contributors. Those contributors who cannot maintain a regular posting schedule will have their bio and mini-sidebar profiles removed.
- Once an article is posted to the BiggerPockets blog it becomes the property of BiggerPockets, Inc.
NOTE: By agreeing to contribute to this blog, you must agree to all of the above conditions.
