    Ive got into YT marketing over the past number of months.

    I would like to know what is the best practice for using affiliate links.
    I understand that the Big G/YT don't like affiliate links/cloaking...so was wondering what is the best way to go about it?

    buy a cheap domain (info or co.cc) and redirect it to your affiliate link

    Careful ... some companies do not allow this. Make sure you read the Terms and Conditions.

    Also, be careful with URL shortners as sites like bit.ly are blocked by a lot of enterprise website blockers.

    Or you could create your own landing page? Don't have to be a self-hosted site, you could use Blogger or Squidoo, etc...
