How to Create A Privacy Policy For Your Blog In Just Minutes

Create A Privacy Policy For Your Blog

Like a business, every blog should have a privacy policy that represents the legal aspects of the blog. If you are a blogger, you might have noticed that every professional blog has a privacy policy page.

A privacy policy page contains legal aspects of your blog, and it helps your readers to know about how the blog collects its data and how you monetize the blog.

If you want to monetize your blog with Google AdSense or Amazon Affiliates, you should know that both programs require a privacy policy page on your blog that discloses how you collect, use and store data from visitors and use cookies.

I’ve heard that a lot of people didn’t get AdSense approval because of not having a privacy policy. This is the same for other Ad Networks. And Amazon Affiliate Program also requires a privacy policy. So it’s crucial to have a privacy page for your blog.

There are many other advantages of having a privacy page for your blog. Some of them are:

  • Most online people like privacy as they are sharing personal info (Like Email) with you.
  • It helps your readers or users to know what you do with their data.
  • It is required by third-party websites and ad servers.
  • Having a privacy page represents that you respect the privacy.

Making or writing a privacy page is not an easy task if you want to do it by a lawyer. You have to pay some extra cash to your lawyer. But there’s a better and easy way. You can use Online Blog Privacy Policy Generator to make your privacy policy page.

    This is probably the most helpful piece I’ve ever found on the internet. Not only I was able to get a nice privacy policy page, but I also got a great terms and conditions page. I am still to re-apply for Google Adsense though. I want to make sure my Alexa ranking reaches less than 400k. In case, you have any other tip. I own an entertainment blog http://www.entadaplace.com for over four years, and I’ve not made a penny online.

    Thanks

      • Palashtd says:

        Thanks for your reply.

  • Dear Istiak,
    I’ve to say I was blind, now I see. Really, I didn’t know about this awesome solution for creating a privacy page.

    BUT I’ve a few concerns regarding this –

    – As the site offers preset templates and these (at least some portions of many users) may be same for more than one person, won’t this be a problem for duplicated content?

    AND Amazon associate program doesn’t require a privacy policy page on blogs for its approval (I got approved though I didn’t have a privacy page).

    By the way, having a privacy policy page means that you’re concerned about your readers’ privacy. So every blog should have one as more or less, every blog tries to build email list.

    Finally, I’m ending with a follow up question (this may be a personal one I guess!) – did you create your privacy policy page from the same site?

    Thanks

  • Abhishek says:

    Hi there,

    Thanks, bro, you have made my work easier. I was writing it manually. But now I realize it is so easy to get a private policy for your site. But, if same private policy is used by many sites, does it will create some issue, i.e., copy content??

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      It’s not going to be a big problem. But you can consider making privacy policy page noindex.

    I have not launched my blog yet, still researching! This is exactly what I was looking for. My question, I plan to try to get google adsense and amazon on blog, do I do privacy policy first or wait til ads start? Thanks!!!

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Add privacy policy first. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  • Vrushali says:

    If you are any kind of blogger, it is compulsory that you write a privacy policy for your blog. This is a method to present the uniqueness of your blog aside from some other significant benefits that are attached to it.

    The advantages of a privacy policy for any website: 1. it makes your readers trust you & 2. It protects you from any claims. A valid privacy policy page on your blog is a way to explain your clients that you are dedicated to the purposes that are useful to them, such as responsibility and transparency.

    These features like privacy policy will automatically encourage you to build a great relationship with your readers. And you stand a chance of growing your customer support with the appropriate privacy policy as well as defending your company from being practiced as a channel for fraudulent uses.

    Thanks for sharing such valuable info with us, I am going to update it again on my site.
