    This is so frustrating -.- I need a URL shortener that allows Clickbank hop links.

    Tried these:
    bit.ly - Comes up with a big fat WARNING
    ShrinkMyLink - Recently closed .. Used them until they closed down their service :/
    Goo.gl - Wont allow me to cloak hop links

    Can anyone suggest me a GOOD reliable url shortener that wont ban clickbank url's?

    Thanks will be given to anyone who can answer :)

    Get your own domain and install a script like the one below.. You'll be happy you did.

    buy a short URL and use linktrackr.com - it's a killer service that cloaks links, tracks clicks and has a nifty viral bar that allows people to share your affiliate link via facebook, twitter, stumble etc.

    the tracking is amazing! gives you great insight to your affiliate marketing efforts

    hope this helps

    This OldBaldGuy seconds the above. I've been using it for over 9 months and it works like a charm also if you ned to change the redirect you can which saves a bucket load of time.

    If you think that your url should be secure, you can use any one of the below. These two sites scan your end url for any malwares or viruses. Hope this helps.

    If you have a domain and your own wordpress blog you can use a link shortening engine like WP Traffic Tools (http://www.wptraffictools.com) or even a free one like pretty links lite. WPTT has extra features such as statistics and referrer blanking though.

    Why don't you just use simple PHP redirect?
    For example you can create PHP page (name it product.php or however you want) and on top of it insert:
    PHP:
    <?php
    header
    ('Location: http://www.insertyourhoplinkhere.xyz');
    ?>
    After that, upload it to your server and go to www.yourdomain.xyz/product.php. You'll be immediately redirected to http://www.insertyourhoplinkhere.xyz

    I use a nice little tool that creates an encrypted HTML file ( with a name/tittle of your choice ) of your affiliate link. Then all you do is upload it via ftp to your public_html folder. Then you will have a link like:

    yourdomain.com/yourpagename.HTML

    Then you can use any shortner you like and your affiliate link will always be cloaked.

    Yea, I was getting pretty annoyed with all the BS "warnings" as well. Only tried the first few that people suggested and the only one that worked for me and my CB link was the furly one. I know this is an old post, but it's relevant since I am sure someone else is pulling their hair out like I was. So here is an unintentional BUMP lol
