Link Tracking and Cloaking in Bulk CSV Upload + Google Analytics (4 posts)

    Hi Guys,
    I have seen various Link Tracking and Cloaking Plugins, but I am uploading in bulk via CSV, so in order to make cloaked URLS I would have to go to whatever Link Plugin and ONE BY ONE type in the URL and my preferred shorturl ... surely there is a faster way?

    Like upload a CSV file with:

    Affiliate link, cloaked url name, type of redirect

    Prefer links like - mydomain.com/go/cloakedurlname etc

    any help?
    Also can anyone recommend a good link tracking / cloaking plugin that integrates with Google Analytics to allow you to track outgoing clicks and conversions?

    would prefer a free plugin that does this, but lmk any options

    would also need to properly track clicks out per day (some of these just show total clicks out which is not precise enough)

    Try the Link Cloaking Plugin available through White Shadow. It will create a redirect link for ALL outgoing links on your site automatically. Works great for my site which has hundreds of affiliate products.

    You can also add exceptions to it so that it will not cloak certain URLs that you specify

    I hope that helps. It may not offer the tracking you're looking for but maybe you can get programmer to tweak it a bit for you.

    Oops, actually they have an premium version which costs around $60 and it does have tracking. You can find a link to it via the "Author/Plugin Website" I linked to above.

    Hope that helps!
