Advertising Policy 

Stadium Events Guide®

StadiumEventsGuide.com is an independent website.  That means we are not affiliated with a government tourist office, travel agency, cruise company, or anything other travel-related business.  We do not accept payment, either direct or indirect, for the content that we write and publish, nor do we charge you a subscription fee of any sort to access it.  We have sole control over the editorial content included on the site.  

Stadium Events Guide® covers its expenses through advertising and affiliate relationships.  Google provides ads ("Adsense") - you've probably noticed them on many pages.  Affiliate relationships compensate Stadium Events Guide with a small commission if you purchase or sign up their products after clicking on links in texts or images on the pages.  This is how we are able to provide all the free content on this website, and continue adding to it. 

There are 3 important things to know:

  • These ads and affiliate relationships do not bias or influence what we write or publish.
  • You do not pay any additional fees if you click on affiliate links and then buy or sign up for something - you'll pay the same or even less than if you purchased or signed on through PDG's affiliates directly.
  • In some cases, Stadium Events Guide is able to offer special discounts when you buy through our pages.  This is because the affiliate company doesn't have to pay for advertising - so they pass part of their savings on to you.

In the case of Google Adsense, they select the ads they show, so if you see an ad related to a topic that we've written about, its content reflects their choice, not ours.  They show different ads in different locations, so we probably don't see the same ads that you do.

In addition to Adsense, you will see other ads on the website.  Several are for affiliates, such as TicketLiquidator and TripAdvisor.  We do our best to make sure that ads look like ads, and won't be mistaken for content.  We turn down all paid endorsements, as well as ads from companies that don't meet our quality criteria.  We also turn down all requests to publish promotional content written by others on the site (you'd be surprised by how many of those requests we get).

We choose affiliates that we believe deliver best value for the money.  In fact, most are companies we use ourselves - usually after a lot of initial research to figure out which is the best.

As you can see, we personally prefer companies that find the best prices from different sources, and then let you choose what's best for you.  So we're happy to provide you with links to them.  If you use their services or purchase their products and Stadium Events Guide makes a small commission, that's a win-win and it is what makes the continuation and growth of this site possible.  

We list the companies with which Stadium Events Guide has an affiliate relationship at the bottom of this page.  PDG also includes links to many attractions, businesses, and organizations where Stadium Events Guide does not have an affiliate relationship. 

One more thing - we pay for all our meals in restaurants, our tickets for attractions or events, entrance fees, etc.  In the rare circumstances that we're offered and use complementary tickets, we state that clearly.  Our goal is to bring you unbiased information that is accurate and trustworthy.

We occasionally add other affiliates for short periods of time, especially when they offer discounts of interest to site visitors, and we're always on the lookout for other high-quality advertising and affiliates that will give you good discounts or convenience.  We also drop affiliates if they no longer provide good value.
