WooCommerce Cloak Affiliate Links

Description

The WooCommerce Cloak Affiliate Links plugin allows you to mask all external links in your WooCommerce store.

For example, change this…
merchant.com/index.php?aff_id=123&product_id=456

… into this:
yoursite.com/go/123

Configure the status code for the redirect to either 301, 302 or 307.

The plugin also adds a “Disallow” to your robots.txt file to prevent bots from following those external links.

FAQ

What redirect status should I use, 301, 302 or 307?

There’s a lot of debate about this. I would suggest Googling this and seeing which works best for you. The default status is 302.
