Linking to Competitors

Occasionally, you might need to link to another educational site in your tutorial or course, for "further reading", or to explain a particular concept in more detail. Here are the guidelines for what is/isn't allowed when linking to competing sites.

It's usually OK to link to a competitor if:

  • The material isn't available anywhere on Tuts+ (and you've carefully checked!)
  • The competitor is a free site

You shouldn't link to a competitor if:

  • The material is available on Tuts+ (link to that instead!)
  • The competitor is a paid site (either subscription-based, or pay-per-course based)
  • The company operates in the same industry as Envato Market, or Envato Studio
