Avoid Confusion, Choose Clearly: The official.link Keywords & Brand Name Policy
Keywords and Brand Name Policy
for official.link/ pages.
This Keywords and Brand Name Policy governs the naming of links created on the official.link platform.
We value creativity and individuality, but we also want to ensure a safe and positive experience for all users.
This policy clarifies which keywords and brand names are allowed and which are not as link names.
Scope of the Policy
This policy applies to all link names and associated content created on official.link.
It applies to both generic keywords and individual names.
Prohibited Keywords and Brand Names
The following keywords and brand names are not allowed in link names:
1. Direct Brand Names:
- You cannot use brands you don't own or partner with in your link names.
This includes but is not limited to well-known companies, organizations, and individuals.
- (e.g., official.link/Google
- official.link/Amazon etc...
- Using someone else's brand name implies affiliation or endorsement, which may be misleading or deceptive.
2. Generic Keywords:
- Broad and generic keywords that don't accurately reflect your link's content are not allowed. (e.g., official.link/animals, official.link/music, official.link/life).
- These keywords can be confusing and make it difficult for users to find what they're looking for.
3. Misleading Terms:
- You cannot use keywords or brand names in your link name that misrepresent your link's purpose or content. (e.g., official.link/get-rich-quick, official.link/best-iphone-deals, even if your link doesn't actually get people rich quickly or sell iPhones).
- Misleading terms can be harmful and cause user frustration.
4. Competitive Brand Comparisons:
- Avoid using link names that directly compare yourself to other brands in a negative way. (e.g., official.link/better-than-YouTube, official.link/not-like-TikTok).
- This can be considered disparaging and is not in line with our community values.
Allowed Keywords and Brand Names
You can use the following keywords and brand names in your link names:
1. Specific Keywords:
- Keywords that accurately reflect the content or focus of your link are allowed. (e.g., official.link/cat-breeding-tips, if your link offers advice on cat breeding).
- Specific keywords help users find your link more easily.
2. Personal Brands and Company Names:
- You can use your own name or your company name in your link name, provided it is associated with the link's content. (e.g., official.link/JohnSmithFitness, if John Smith owns the link and runs a fitness program).
- This helps users understand who is behind the link.
Consequences of Violation
If you violate this Keywords and Brand Name Policy, we may take action, including but not limited to:
- Removing the offending link.
- Suspending or terminating your account.
- Loss of access to specific features or functionalities.
If you see a link that violates this policy, please report it using the "Report A Violation" feature on the platform or by contacting us at official.link/contact
If you disagree with a decision regarding your link name, you can submit an appeal through our Contact Us page.
We will review all appeals carefully and respond as soon as we can.
Regular Review and Updates
We will regularly review and update this policy as needed.
We encourage you to check back periodically for any changes.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
We want to ensure official.link remains a safe and positive platform for everyone.
