SmartLink Dynamic URLs

Description

With SmartLink DU you can insert up to 5 URLs to a single link and use them in a single anchor text depending on visitor GeoLocalization or randomly.

Every time the page is loaded, one of the 5 URLs you’ve entered will be inserted randomly in the link if there is no GeoTargeting match or if Geotargeting feature is off.

As the link sintaxis is same as a normal link, it works exactly the same.
There is no risk of being penalized by Search engines, ¡THIS is NOT a black hat Plugin!

SmartLink can be used to make a more impressive internal linking strategy, specially useful if you have tons of content and want to link to your posts more aggressively.

Also it can be useful for essential links within posts excerpts showing in top of the main page, where you can’t add another link and want to use the existing one, linking to several URLs. Also can be used as a link shortener, compressing up to five urls in a single link

You can use SmartLink to show different external URLs to each of your visitors from different countrys using the GeoTargeting feature.

FAQ

¿What does this plugin exactly do?

SmartLink DU allows to create links with more than one URL in it.
You can use up to 5 URLs in each link and only one smartlink in each post.
When clicking the link, visitor will be redirected to one of the 5 URLs randomly just like a normal link.
Visitor won’t notice nothing at all if they don’t click on a same link twice. When that happens, odds of seeing the same page are higher if less URLs are used.

¿How does SmartLink DU works?

When entering two or more URLs in meta box, the plugin generates a shortcode that must be inserted manually by webmaster.
The shortcode looks like this: [smartlink]anchor text[/smartlink] enclosing the anchor text just like a normal link.
Shortcode is not shown in frontend, even you can see it in visual editor it won’t be seen when anybody access the page.
You can also insert shortcode manually without using the button.

¿What about SEO?

A link created with this plugin looks exactly the same to eyes of spider bots. So they are crawled just as a normal link.
Anyway, URL in link will change each time bots index it. So it will assume that link has been edited changing URL. That’s nothing bad at all, also can be a good thing as Search engines bots adress edits as updates of content, and that is something good for SEO.

¿What is this plugin useful for?

You can atach up to 5 URLs to a link, so if you have one single link and you want to insert more than one
url to it, this is the right plugin for that. Specially recommended for internal linking, if you have several posts you have to link in one single anchor text.
This plugin it’s perfect to improve your linking strategy with a more agressive kind of link.
