Our Content

We produce and maintain content for 3 main areas of this website:

We take pride in producing accurate content to help you achieve your goals and solve problems with your website. We install, test, and use the products we feature in our content so we can give you our real opinions and show you exactly how the products work.

Each new piece of content is reviewed for accuracy by at least one Team Lead or Manager to ensure high quality and accuracy. All code snippets are also thoroughly tested.

We invest time and resources in keeping our content updated so that our readers benefit from the best possible advice. Several team members are responsible for checking and refreshing content every few months, supported by a full-time Content Editor. If you find content on our site that is out of date, it helps us a great deal if you could post a comment, and we will edit that content as a priority.

Our team does not accept guest blog pitches. We sometimes invite WordPress experts to post on our blog at our discretion.

How We’re Funded

Most popular websites and bloggers accept referral fees from the products or services they talk about on their site, including most major eCommerce retailers. The WP Mail SMTP blog is partly funded by similar referral fees. This supports our content production and allows us to produce the highest quality information about WordPress.

We only recommend products that we have reviewed and tested. Our opinions are our own.

We do not use referral links for products we would not use personally. We do not feature products in return for payment, nor do we publish sponsored articles.
