RoamIndonesia.com is a labour of love first and foremost, but the reality is it costs money to keep running and improving the site. So that we can keep the site free to all users, we generate income through advertising.
There’s a few ways we do this:
- Cost per click advertising – We use Google Adsense to place targeted advertisements on our website. We earn money when a site visitor clicks on one of these ads.
- Affiliate advertising – We’ve entered into affiliate programs with some on-line businesses that offer services or products that we feel add value to our user’s experience, such as accommodation and flight booking providers. Whenever one of our users clicks on an affiliate link on our site and proceeds to make a purchase within a designated period, that sale is tracked back to RoamIndonesia.com and we earn a commission.
- Direct advertising – This refers to an advertisement placement on our site under agreement between us and the advertiser. We earn advertising fees for allowing the ad to appear on our site for a set period of time.
What we don’t do:
We don’t earn money by placing native advertising (targeted content that whilst often useful and interesting has an ulterior motive of pushing the advertisers wagon), paid for editorials, advertorials, sponsored articles or paid reviews. Nor do we exchange favourable reviews for discounts, freebies or junkets. The bottom line is we don’t engage in any “hidden” advertising.
All the content on this website has been written by us, a vetted contributor or someone we’ve engaged to write for us. We always endeavor to give a fair and honest representation of every destination, attraction, experience or anything else that we publish on RoamIndonesia.com.
