I just read an excellent tip on my favorite forum and wanted to share it.

ftcAs you may already know, the FTC requires that any affiliate who uses rankings, reviews or testimonials to promote products must clearly disclose the fact that they receive compensation for doing so.

Search engines can read this text and penalize your SERP Rankings (Search Engine Results Page) because they despise affiliate websites. Is that far? Who really knows.

A simple solution is to use an image of your disclosure instead of text. As of this writing Search Engines cannot read images.

Just remember not yo use the term “Affiliate Disclosure” in your image alt tag…lol.
