GamePreorders.com contains links to online retailers, some of which earn us a commission when a qualifying purchase is made through them. The Amazon search widget also works in the same manner. These commissions enable us to keep the website running with a minimum amount of ads, always placed outside the main content area (if you’re using ad blocker, try disabling it and see for yourself).
The links are monetized through a service called VigLink, which is seamless and does not affect visitor experience. Separately, Amazon links and widgets are monetized through the Amazon Associates program. A disclosure as well as a link to this page is provided on every page where either is utilized. Below is an example of such a disclosure from a real article (outlined for emphasis):
GamePreorders.com does not accept sponsored posts, meaning the writers are not incentivized to advertise or review any specific games. Furthermore, any in-article retailer links, whether monetized or not, are only provided where relevant (e.g. the retailer offers an exclusive pre-order bonus, or has a special exclusive edition of the game available).
