    Hello all,

    I'm looking for a free plugin for my blog to cloak/mask my affiliate links.

    On my blog I have an image describing the product and a link to the product if you click the image.

    I've tried a few, namely :

    Pretty Links - wasn't easy to set up as I've already put the affilaite links in my blog.

    URL Cloaker for Wordpress Plugin - Works well but reveals the affilaite link if the user is using Firefox (as Firefox blocks redirection) and if the user waits the link is revealed.

    WP No External Links - This works well (still shows the affiliate link) but masks the link from El Goog only. For some reason some of the links blocked but some are not.

    If there isn't a free plugin is there any other way to cloak my links? In a completely whitehat way of course as I am promoted products on AW and Buy.at.

    Many thanks!

    Who are you trying to mask from? The user, search engines, or the affiliate company?

    Thanks, using this!

    GoCodes also does the same, the only thing I with Pretty is that it's a chore to set up.

    At life's chores are better then quick fixes so I would go pretty if it's making you money it's worth putting the time in just think of it as a 9. -5 job.
