This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Affiliate Link Builder


This plugin enables you to build links within their post by simply entering the keyword and URL. For Admins, who want to add internal links or link to a particular post/product, going back to each of their posts and inserting links takes a lot of time. This plugin will make your life easier.

Plugin allows finer control options for admins like do not insert links before n words or, only insert x links (i.e. if 1 keyword is used 5 times in post, it will only link x times) to make sure post quality is not compromised.

To monetize using Shimply Affiliate Program, please apply at and insert your affiliate id in the plugin configuration panel.

You can:
* set the words to be case sensitive (to only interlink your brand name for example),
* make links nofollow (makes sense when you link to affiliate products),
* upload keywords in bulk.

Arbitrary section

The settings page is under the Posts menu -> Keywords in 2.7+. It’s under Manage -> Keywords, in older versions of WP (up to 2.5 or 2.6) .

  1. This plugin allows you to mass-upload keywords. So you just need to prepare a CSV file in Excel and then copy-paste it into the mass-upload box in your admin panel and then click upload! This is great for larger sites targeting multiple keywords that want to speed things up.

  2. It’s up to you whether you make cAsE ReLeVaNT to your links. Check the “Exact Match” checkbox for it to only match when the case is the same as you typed the word into the admin panel. Leave it unchecked to have all cases link to your selected page.

  3. Post-level overrides of globally-assigned keywords.

  4. Link to sources or affiliate links whom you reference a lot.

  5. Build internal links automatically to pages you regularly reference.

  6. Make a link nofollow. For example, if you link to particular Wikipedia pages a lot then set the nofollow to be automatic.

  7. Link multiple keywords to a single URL. Target all a page’s keywords at once! Just put a space, a pipe (eg |) and a space between the multiple keywords. E.g. affiliate | affiliate marketing. More efficiency! More time savings!

  8. Pick the number of times a keyword will link to a particular URL. If you only want the words social media to link to your social media category once, you can do that. Notice that social gets linked next, since I also have that keyword assigned to link to the same page.

Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.


Will this plugin overwrite links in older posts using keywords I set to link to particular pages?

Where a post already links out using given keywords, the plugin will NOT overwrite it.

Can we make this link out in a post only a set number of times?

Yes, this is possible.

Can we make a set of URLs to link to, and have it link at random?

Yes, this is possible. You just need to separate the URLs with | symbols in the URL field.

How is this plugin different from other similar plugins?

They do not have the post-level override functionality. They also don’t have mass upload through a CSV copy-paste functionality. A third difference is that multiple keywords can link to a given URL, or one keyword can link to multiple URLs (see next questions for more).

Where is the post-level override?

It’s in a box below the main content area in /wp-admin/post.php (or post-new.php). I.e. When you write/edit individual posts, scroll down and you’ll see it.

How do I link multiple keywords to URL, or one keyword to multiple URLs?

Type the different keywords or URLs out with a pipe symbol ( | ) in between them. It’s found just above the enter key on most qwerty keyboards; you press shift+| to make it appear (without shift you’ll get a backslash: \ ) .

It is the only one that has converted all my keywords inside posts and pages. Ninja Affiliate hasn't been well supported lately and it seems to be skipping keywords in posts and pages. I use it in combination with the WordPress plugin Easy Affiliate Links. Having said that the plugin could use a better UI and an import/export feature. I gave it five stars because it does what the developer states it will.
