    http://www.themophiles.com/go/bluehost

    but it is being created by pretty link but links are not working when clicked on it.

    though I have created many pretty links without prefix- /go/ or /out/ in this way
    http://www.themophiles.com/studiopress
    these links are working very well.
    but i want to make links with prefix - /go/ or /out/ please tell me what should I do. I have already tried to create directory with name /go/ or /out/ in my parent website directory but it is still not working. please tell me what should I do?

    I tested your link http://www.themophiles.com/go/bluehost -- and it's taking me to Bluehost fine. Looks like you got this working?

    though this link works fine. I don't know how..but know when ever I am trying to make any new link with prefix"go" or "out"

    The following message appears.

    "ERROR: This Pretty Link Slug is already taken. Check to make sure it isn't being used by another pretty link, post, page, category or tag slug. If none of these are true then check to see that this slug isn't the name of a file in the root folder of your wordpress install."

    Check that you don't have a page/post/category/tag/media-attachment that uses the slugs "go" or "out". If so, that is why you're getting this message.

    Pretty Link adds the nofollow to the header so as long as you have nofollow option checked on each link, you'll be fine.
