SPONSORED LINK GUIDELINES
Sponsored links on The Microsoft 365 Weekly are in quite a strict format, but one which is very similar to the organic content in the newsletter so this works in your favour. The sponsored link is made up of three parts:
Title – A single line of text. This should be somewhere around five to ten words.
URL – The URL you’d like to send people to! The title will be linked to here.
Body – A single paragraph of text, directly under the title. No markup or other formatting is allowed. The maximum length for the paragraph is 60 words, but don’t feel you need to use all the words as sometimes shorter is more effective! You may also include one additional link in this body text which goes to the same URL as the main sponsored link (although UTM parameters can change, if required!)
By default, the URL will automatically include UTM parameters which will indicate to your analytics software that the traffic is coming from The Weekly SEO. If you’d prefer to use your own UTMs or other tracking parameters that’s no problem at all!
