Journal Prep Blog, Article, Forum, Comment Content Disclaimer
This disclaimer applies to all content in the blog section of this website.
Journal Prep provides information, advice & content based on our personal and professional experience. This content is, by-and-large, opinion, and although we do our best to limit false or misleading information, the practices of search engine optimization and search engine marketing are rarely an exact science and your results applying this information may vary.
The Journal Prep blog, Forum, and posted content is comprised of content from multiple authors – some are employees of Journal Prep, others are guest bloggers or Journal Prep blog users like you. Journal Prep reviews all (non-comment) content on the blog. We try to err on the side of publishing “too much” rather than “too little” material, and thus, you may find content that is heavily opinionated or even dead wrong at times. It’s our opinion that it’s valuable to be exposed to content and perspectives of all kinds, even if it’s not 100% accurate. Even bad ideas can bear useful fruit. Thus, we’re generally liberal with the blog. Please remember to always use your best judgment when making decisions about how to do internet marketing on your site.
Access to certain areas of our blog is restricted. Journal Prep reserves the right to restrict access to other areas of our blog, or our whole blog, at our discretion.
If we provide you with a user ID and password to enable you to access restricted areas of our blog or other content or services, you must ensure that that user ID and password is kept confidential.
We may disable your user ID and password in our sole discretion without notice or explanation.
