Hukd, Playpennies, Dealspwn and Bitterwallet are all part of the same overall company although I'm not sure where Quidco stands at the moment.

no they arent :?


so if i decided to open a site and add to every deal that i had added it to my site, that would been seen as self promotion, if i remember rightly someone was banned for doing this, hukd is either against self promo or it isnt:? Although saying that i dont even understand what a blog is, i always thought it was a chat place

...yes they are, as I've mentioned above it's all the same company. The different blogs also cross promote each other where suitable.

That's not an accurate analogy - if you were hired by HUKD to create a new site tied in with the main one then posted on HUKD to say you'd added the deal to the new one then that would be allowed. Setting up and promoting your own site is entirely different as it's for your personal gain, not any part of the HUKD group.

i dont really see why they need to post what they do, other than self promoting the new site, as far as a i was aware hukd was against self promotion, and whether or not playpennies is part of admins empire shouldnt be in the equation really

I actually find myself agreeing with you. How odd :lol:

Having said that, until you mentioned it I hadn't even noticed tbh.

Of course they're promoting their site as they are with the links down the right hand side of the main pages (just as Playpennies links back to HUKD on its main page) and clearly it's very much 'part of the equation' that all the sites are part of the same company.

Why wouldn't HUKD promote it's own blogs?
It's just like the BBC doesn't have advertising, but runs trailers for Eastenders.

Its more annoying that like the other 2 blogs when they launched, they are posting far too much crap - meaning the blog list on the right hand sidebar is sometimes full of just playpennies crap.

Who'd have thought a year ago bitterwallet would end up being the most respected hukd blog!

I agree with this, but technically moneysavingannoyingmuppet.com also only has self advertising, and looks a complete and utter mess. Lets hope HUKD doesn't go the same way.

Hi Sassie. It's all been explained above really.

Bitterwallet, PlayPennies, Dealspwn are all sites in the Hotukdeals network, and when a great deal is spotted and posted elsewhere, we like to thank the original poster in the HUKD thread.

We've been doing this for 6 months with Dealspwn, and have recently started doing it for PlayPennies and Bitterwallet too.

I think you are noticing the Playpennies posts the most, as those are the deals you are most interested in, being a parent, and PlayPennies has a parenting focus.

so is this going to be ok to do when we spot deals and post from other sites? Or is it purely to do with admin owning both, i was just very surprised to see it, i have never noticed it being done for any other site before, surely having links down the side and underneath is enough for the self promoting, although im sorry i sstill dont see the need for this or dont feel its in the spirit of what hukd stands for

as far as i see its just common courtesy to the original poster.......like a thanks rather than just using it

dont quite see what the fuss is about tbh

Sassie - you are thinking so much your brain is escaping from your head.

Here's a Dealspwn post here:

hotukdeals.com/ite…914

As has now been said several different ways, yes it is do with all the sites being part of the same group and it's not self promotion because they are part of the same group. Thesaint's analogy of BBC promoting Eastenders but not other commercial products is a good analogy and personally I think if the blog is going to use a deal from here then it's good manners to thank the user. Additionally the blogs link back to HUKD (and each other) which means while HUKD may drive some traffic towards the blog, the blogs may similarly drive traffic to HUKD. As far as I'm aware the user accounts for the blog posters on this site can be ignored so if you don't like them then you can just add those usernames to your ignore list.
