How to cloak your affiliate link

If you are promoting an affiliate product, you will be given an affiliate link.
For example,if you are promoting a clickbank product,you may have a link as follows :

http://XXX.clevergiz.hop.clickbank.net?cgpage=keyword-researcher

This is for a product called Keyword Researcher.
You would replace the XXX with your affiliate ID.

However,it doesn’t look very professional,which is why there are a number of URL shorteners available.

2 of the more popular ones are

1 bit.ly

2 Google’s offering called Goo.gl

Again,these are not very professional and don’t relate to your own identity or brand.

My favourite URL shortener ( or link cloaker as it is sometimes known )
is a WordPress plug-in called Pretty Link

It is very easy to use, and to show you how to use it I have made a video below.

If you need any help or have any comments,please do no hesitate to contact me.
