How To Cloak Your Affiliate Links

I’ve recently been reviewing some of my subscribers blogs and one of the main things that cropped up more than once is uncloaked affiliate links.

One of the biggest problems with uncloaked affiliate links used to be Clickbank “hoplinks” as it is very easy to see the clickbank “nickname” being used and replace it, sothe referring affiliate ends up not getting credited for the commission, sometimes referred to as “hoplink hijacking”.

Now thsi shouldn’t be as big a problem any more as Clickbank now offer “cloacked” links, instead of the traditional nickname.productname.hop.clickank_dot_net format that it used to be.

However I still recommend using a simple html redirect file on your own site for all affiliate links for a number of reasons, most importantly being that they don’t look so obviously “affiliate” (or monetized) links, but also if you need to change the program you are promoting you can simply change the one file on your own site and anywhere that you have used that link is also effectively updated…

I’ve just finished a new video showing just how quick and easy it is to do this on my Internet Marketing Tutorial Videos site, and it’s only 6.25 mins long, so if you don’t already know how to do this go take a look now…
