Anyone who is passionate and therefore knowledgeable about any subject.
How much does it cost?
ZEEF is absolutely free.
Can I write content on my ZEEF page? Or just categorized links? Where does the content appear?
You can write both content and categorized links on your ZEEF page. You can determine yourself where you’d like blocks of text or links to be displayed through easy dragging-and-dropping. We recommend to focus on links, and keep text blocks to a minimum.
How can I suggest links?
You can suggest links to each link block by clicking on the “+ Suggest” button, or you can suggest a completely new link block by clicking the “+ Suggest link block” button on the top right of the page.
In the dialog you can suggest a new link block with links which you think are useful to be included in the page. The expert will get a notification and be provided the option to accept or reject it.
- If it’s accepted it will appear in the page
- If it’s rejected you will get a notification with the reject reason

How do you get rewarded as an expert?
Through advertising and affiliate marketing commissions.
How do you protect the integrity of the information on ZEEF pages?
Competition between experts will safeguard the quality and integrity of information on ZEEF. Consumers aren’t stupid and will spot it if an expert has decided to ‘sell out’. We believe they will then favor a different expert, who is loyal to quality information rather than pure commerce. Also, an expert’s name and reputation are attached to their ZEEF page.
How do I know I can trust an expert on ZEEF?
You can view user ratings of experts, as well as the expert’s LinkedIn profile. You can see how you are connected to them through social networks.
Which Affiliate Networks / Aggregators are on ZEEF so far?
Amazon.com and Viglink.
When can I publish my page?
When you think your page is good enough you can request our approval for publishing. Please pay attention to having at least multiple blocks of high quality content and links, as well as to using correct English.
What’s the difference between green and blue links?
A link turns from blue to green if you have been on that page before.
Why does ZEEF allow competition between Experts?
We believe in competition and that it will make ZEEF better. It stimulates people to deliver quality contributions to ZEEF. Competition fosters diversity and excellence.
Does ZEEF prevent ‘copycats’? Or could you just copy all the links from a very good expert to make your own ZEEF page?
Yes, we do prevent copycats by checking for the uniqueness of the ZEEF pages, thus preventing this kind of copycat behavior.
