Blew my goals by 10 - Pretty Link Pro
By , for WP 3.8.1

Started January 1st.

Goal for January with lite Pretty Link use was 2,000 unique hits because I did not have that many reviews ready for publication.

So January Goal was 2,000 unique hits.

Awesome shock:

Over 20,000 Unique Hits in first month of use!


So Happy To Find This Plugin :)
By , for WP 3.8.1

I have spent a number of hours testing a number of different link cloaking plugins, there was a problem with each such as not working at all, being too complicated, or being difficult to understand. So very happy to have remembered Pretty Links, it is simple, it effectively cloaks links and does just what I wanted. I am looking forward to the link tracking, I have used Pretty Links before and found the link tracking useful as well. You have a happy camper here!

Peace of mind

Amazing how easy it is to setup outbound links with this plugin. It gives me peace of mind knowing that my affiliate links are tracked.

straightforward, good hit statistics

I'm using Pretty Link Lite to evaluate the usefulness of a QR-code by counting hits on its link, which redirects to my site's home page. I tried half a dozen other redirection plugins before this one, and none of them were satisfactory. Most failed to count hits properly, one imposed an unacceptable delay before completing the redirection, and one failed completely, resulting in 404 errors.

So it was a great relief to find Pretty Link, and I recommend it without reservation.

Someone introduced me to this plugin a while back, and I thought, how good could a free plugin be? Let me tell you, it is the bomb! I don't build a site without this plugin as an indispensible part of my site structure.

A good example of where I have used this is on the site which is all about hair clippers, and in particular discusses the best hair clippers for black men

Great Plugin For Whatever For Shortlinks You Need

I use this plugin for so many different purposes from affiliate codes to my own book sales. I love the fact that it tracks clicks, and I create an unlimited number of pretty links to do split testing of links as well.

It's the best affiliate link plugin, ever
By , for WP 3.5.2

I use Pretty Link Pro and I couldn't be happier. I can easily update links, nofollow links, track hits with graphs, and group links into categories. I used to use Redirection plugin but this is leaps and bounds better.

Cool ;-)

I started using the WP Pretty Link plugin for my external cryptic links.

Rather than linking directly to, for example, my picasa photo albums I link to mysite.com/picasa/album5
and WP Pretty Links redirects it to the real url.

This way I can always update my Pretty Links without changing my website links.
Search engines won't collect my sensitive urls, I reduce 404s, and I can add a layer of privacy, in case I need users to first log-in.


Nice Looking Links
By , for WP 3.5

Since I have been using Pretty Link, I have a nice links. No more ugly and scary long affiliate links. I'm considering the pro version, definitely as it has features I'm planning of using in the future.
