WP No External Links

Mask all external links - make them internal or hide. On your own posts, comments pages, authors page - no more PR\CY dropping!

New feature - extend plugin with your own functions! For example, you can encrypt links.

This plugin has many cool features - outgoing clicks stats, fulllink masking, custom redirects,masking links to digital short code and base64 encoding and so on.It is designed for specialists who sell different kind of advertisment on their web site (for example, with sape system) and care about the number of outgoing links that can be found by search engines. Now you can make all external links internal! In your own posts, comments pages, authors page... Plugin does not change anything or write to base - just processes output.

Now you don't need to worry about your page rank or index, dropping because of spam bots. You write any kind of http link - and it becomes internal or hidden! Of cause, all the links will still be usable :).

Warning: this plugin may conflict with your caching plugins, including Hyper Cache. Usually adding redirect page to caching plugin exclusions works fine, but I can't garantee that everything will go smoothly. By the way, after deactivation this plugins leaves no traces in your database or hard drive - so if you have you have problems after deactivation - please, search them in another source, for example, caching plugins. Flushing cache should help.

  • From version 2.0 you can make all links open in new window!
  • After many requests, I finally made an option to disable masking for concrete URLs and posts.
  • Plugin works now without any magic with .htacess - you just install it and it works, and determines itself, if you need to rewrite permalinks, or use default link structure.
    Have fun!

Example

To make the long story short, your links like "http://gmail.com" will be masked into
"http://YourBlog.com/goto/http://gmail.com" - or
"http://YourBlog.com?goto=http://gmail.com"

Now you can even tansform simple link "<a href="http://google.com">google</a>" to
"<noindex><a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://google.com">google</a></noindex>"

Just one popular question :)

- Is it an evil hack and black SEO?!
- Before you say such awful things, read at least Google's topics on SEO

Note

<noindex> tag is used mostly by russian search system "Yandex" (yandex.ru), and non-russian users don't usually need it.
