It is no secret that WPEngine affiliate program has a very high payout. Bloggers always look forward to high paying affiliate programs & but It is no secret that a WPEngine affiliate program has a very high payout.But naked truth is that they are one of Scam affiliate programs when it comes to the commission structure. Here is my story of WP Engine Affiliate Program SCAM Story.
You can earn a lot of money with WP Engine Affiliate Program but there is Twist in their affiliate program
So WP Engine wants to promote this hosting because they offer a huge commission rate of 200$ but there is a fucking dirty secret behind these.
WP Engine is very clever in their affiliate program I will share my personal experience here:
Why Bloggers & Affiliates promote WP Engine
For one simple reason their affiliate commission rate is damn high(200$) I too promoted WP Engine for huge affiliate commission & got some good sales.
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. 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. WP Engine here takes advantage of bloggers like us. It is time to teach them lesson. They cannot play with the feelings of hardcore bloggers like us.
They voided my huge commissions too check screenshots below: loss of more than $3500
WP Engine affiliate program is very deceptive in their terms & conditions
Some sites which use WP Engine Coupon keyword but still not banned, I dont have harsh feelings for these sites but my question is that I need affiliate policy should be same for every affiliate partner, if they have special terms they should mention in their policy.
Why these sites are allowed to use Coupon keyword if they have a strict policy of not using the coupon in any promotional offers. This clearly states their T&C are not fair, they can change their rules according to authority sites. This is unfair to bloggers who work day & night to rank their keywords on top of Google, give them sales & traffic. They don’t understand how much efforts blogger is putting to rank their keyword.
Screenshots from some of my conversations with them, they went silent when I ask why you allowing coupon keyword to these sites:
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.
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.
WP Engine is a bloody cheater when they see your sales are increasing they will try to cut down your commissions automatically by sending your warning emails, I heard this from lot of bloggers who are promoting WP Engine. They just use bloggers like us to get sales & in return they also dont offer us commission.
Their sales team is not supportive at all & they also claim that they fraud seriously, are you fucking kidding me. If you take fraud seriously why not have proper T&C for affiliates. You cannot have different T&C for various affiliates if you choose to have please mention it.
Conclusion: Avoid WP Engine Fraud Affiliate Program otherwise you will cry
WP Engine should clarify this issue, they have caused me a huge loss & my efforts which I had done to rank those keywords.
I would advise every blogger or affiliate marketer to stop promoting their affiliate program as they are playing with the feelings of bloggers. If bloggers get ranked above those authority sites like Retailmenot, etc. WP Engine try to ban bloggers account & threat them to deindex or remove that post. What is the problem if we rank above those authority sites, bloggers like me work day & night to rank those keywords & earn their money. WP Engine uses bloggers like us to make money & then they discontinue our affiliate accounts. Cheaters bloody losers.
Please stay away from WP Engine Affiliate Program.
