What are the * links?
There are two types of links on this website. Any which have a * are affiliate links which take you to the product website which then pay this site. The second type is not an affiliate link and has no *. For you the user there is no difference, the product is the same whether you go via an * link or not. Also, the things I write are never affected by whether I am getting revenue or not. If I can't find an affiliate link for a useful product, I will still include it in exactly the same way. For more details about affiliate links and what happens to the money earned from them read this page.
