You can earn a lot of money with WP Engine Affiliate Program 2022 but there is Twist in their affiliate program ( But before promoting through coupon keyword you need to take their their permission)
So WP Engine wants to promote this hosting because they offer a huge commission rate of $200+ on every sale of their hosting plans.
WP Engine is very clever in their affiliate program I will share my personal experience here: As long time back I told everyone social media that how WP Engine scam em up with affiliate commissions.
Because I did see some affiliates were brand bidding for WP Engine keywords and they dont accept this at all, I never did brand bidding for WP Engine, I did SEO and rank my blog for their review & coupon keywords.
So avoid doing PPC for WP Engine they will ban you instantly, they did this to one of my close friend who was bidding for their brand terms, his commissions were reversed instantly. Better do comparision posts like :
WP Engine Vs Siteground
WP Engine Vs Bluehost
WP Engine Vs Inmotion
WP Engine Vs Godaddy
WP Engine Vs Hostgator
WP Engine Vs Pressable
WP Engine Vs Flywheel
WP Engine Review
These keywords are best for making sales for WP Engine, I will do the same now focusing on these keywords can help me make many sales from my blog : BloggersIdeas.com, as my blog have good authority.
Why Bloggers & Affiliates promote WP Engine
I too promoted WP Engine for huge affiliate commissions & got some good sales through WP Engine Review & WP Engine Discount keywords in 2015.
So every blogger here try very hard to promote WP Engine hosting & rank on 1st of Google SERP.
I too tried & rank on the keyword WP Engine Coupon on 1st page. As a blogger I make lot of efforts to rank site on Google first page. You know SEO is not easy thing, bloggers like me have sleepless nights and we work hard to rank our sites on Google 1st page.
They voided my huge commissions too check screenshots below: loss of more than $3500
How i got commissions back & sort out the matter with WP Engine Affiliate Team, I met Ashwin, he is partnership manager & when I saw him at Affiliate Summit Vegas 2020 event, I decided to speak & told why you eat my commissions for keywords I was ranking in 2015-2016.
Ashwin told me that we can form an agreement & find a bridge to work, I said sure I am here to help and you can do this by giving my commissions or find a suitable way to have win win deal for both of us. As I clearly mention Ashwin that I will not be happy if my hard work goes in vain.
I was really pissed with WP Engine team to be honest when I saw first time. I did have heated arguments at the their booth and Ashwin came to me, I decided to calm down, because I learned one thing spoiling business relationship will never make you money, so I said Ashwin I need a solution here which benefits both the parties.
Back in 2015 I busted my ass off to rank on Google because many big competitors like WpBeginner.com, Retailmenot.com, Groupon.com were ranking for WP Engine keywords.
I beat them on Google & started driving sales for WP Engine but suddenly i got banned & my commissions were reversed.
Screenshots from some of my conversations with Dustin :
I got warning & I removed keywords coupon from article
I did get a warning from WP Engine for using coupon keyword on my blog post: BloggersIdeas.com, but once I got the warning I immediately removed the coupon keywords from my article.
Here are some proofs of my blog coupon keyword removal. Dustin warned me to remove this, I did that too.
After coupon keyword removal my rankings got down & I didnt made any sales from WP Engine. after a month I got my ranking up again , I made some sales but again they reverted my sales.
But I can say my USA trip was successful because at ASW Vegas 2020 event, I meet the WP Engine team and sorted out the issue.
Conclusion: WP Engine Affiliate Program Review 2022 They are Good but before you start promoting them, make sure you contact affiliate manager & share your promotional methods to avoid ban & commissions reversal. If you have any concern about WP Engine affiliate I suggest you reach the out & find a bride to work.
