As I'm answering questions, I've seen instances where a paid product (such as a book, screencast, etc) might help the poster further improve their original problem. Is it acceptable to recommend that product and provide a link to it?

If you have used a particular product to solve a problem, it is ok to mention that in your answer, while also explaining how it is used to solve the problem.

It is not ok to link to a product or site in all your answers, or if the link is the whole answer. Especially not if it is your product or site.

In addition, when applicable: disclose if you're affiliated with the product. – Jeroen Aug 11 '12 at 8:18
