Link Cloaker for Affiliates

Turn your long, unclear affiliate links into simple, user friendly links.

The Link Cloaker for Affiliates plugin from AffiliateDefense takes your long, unclear affiliate links and displays simple, user friendly links that you specify. The plugin automatically changes the URL that is displayed while keeping your affiliate information intact. The plugin helps increase your click through rates and avoid commission theft.

Turns links that look like this:

http://www.tlqpvt.com/?affiliate_id=1343234&pub_id=12182736&ad_id=2321&sub_id=index

Into one that looks like this:

http://www.amazon.com/product-name

Increases Click Through Rates

Website visitors are often reluctant to click on affiliate links because they are typically long, unclear and don't tell the users the actual URL destination. By cloaking your links, your visitors will see a clear, user friendly URL when they hover over an affiliate link.

Avoid Commission Theft

An uncloaked link is vulnerable to commission hijacking. Anyone can simply replace you affiliate id with their own when making a purchase and your commission will go to someone else. The Link Cloaker for Affiliates prevents commission hijacking so you keep all your earned commissions.

Note:

Your cloaked links are saved remotely to AffiliateDefense. This makes it easy to manage and sync your cloaked links from your WordPress admin panel or AffilateDefense. This also makes it easy to use the link cloaker on a non WordPress website and to restore your links at a later time.
