I find that most of my questions are not in any of the videos I've watched on Pretty Link Pro. I guess I'm a slow learner with this plugin, so please excuse my ignorance in this question:
I'm making a sizable eBook that I'm going to highly publicize, and I want to put lots of affiliate links in it. I'm afraid it will haunt me if I set it up wrong. (I don't want Google to eternally nag me to fix links that are out of my control.)
The eBook links I have been making are ones like http://www.mysite.com/recommends/product-here ( /recommends/ being a virtual directory)
Scenario: Someone gets the eBook and clicks a link to http://www.mysite.com/recommends/product. They go to my website, and then they fly to the merchant's site.
Do I want that or not? I see the benefit of hits to my site, but these will only be bounce hits, correct? Should I just send them directly to the merchant site with my affiliate code, and leave my site out of the equation?
Generally, I need to know: if you were making an eBook with affiliate links, how would you set it up? For some, (but not all) of the affiliated products that I promote, I do have posts on my website. My goal is two-fold: to get traffic to my site, plus send lots of visitors to check out the things I recommend in the eBook. I want to do both.
Thanks for any input!
