There are only two types of websites and/or blogs on TheProMall:
- Public: This category includes websites and blogs by small business to promote their knowledge, goods and services. The business must be a legitimate business. (See our Terms of Service for allowable content.)
- How-to, tips and reviews: TheProMall may from time to time create blogs for the benefit of its members and the promotion of member blogs. These blogs may share tips and reviews about products, services, education, books, links, articles and so on, all to help our members.
Here are some examples of blogs that are NOT allowed at TheProMall (all of these fall under the general heading of “spam blogs”, or splogs, and will be deleted as soon as they are found or get reported through the support ticket system):
- Obscene blogs: Blogs that would generate a greater than PG-13 rating. These blogs would contain but not limited to: text, videos or images that are adult in nature or otherwise not appropriate for minors (individuals under 18 years of age), or links to such content; hate speech or excessive violence; shocking or graphic images; extreme profanity; misleading or fraudulent claims; promotion or glamorization of alcohol abuse, drug abuse or use of tobacco products; libelous or defamatory content.
- Scraper blogs: Blogs that take content from other blogs and re-publish it without permission (this is sometimes called scraping). The blog contains all or mostly stolen and unoriginal content.
- SEO blogs: Blogs that are written for search engines instead of humans. These blogs are dedicated to trying to fool Google and other search engines into ranking them or the sites they link to highly.
- Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes.
- Warez blogs: Blogs that promote pirated copies of ebooks, software packages, music, movies, games, etc.
- Automated blogs: Blogs that are generated by computers, including randomly generated blogs, blogs that re-publish press releases, marketing material, search engine results, link dumps or any other mass-produced content.
