Reviews

Great, Simple Plugin

Awesome plugin, easy to use. Seems to work everywhere on my website.

One issue I have is that none of options under “Link Embedding” will save after updating.

Is the link embedding area meant to serve the affiliate link or just the Embed HTML link and shortcode?

SEO Friendly

I liked this plugin just due to X-Robots Noindex feature.

Thanks to the developer for creating this fantastic piece. I appreciate your work.

Works fine!

I have just installed and started using on few my affiliate sites. Perfect for CPA programs!
