    So I have been reading up on affiliate marketing and cloaking and am trying to find a way to incorporate both easily for free.

    I have wordpress and am currently using simple urls plugin to redirect the affiliate links. This is ok but i do not understand the benefit because once you are on amazon site you can see the full url and affiliate id. (maybe i didnt do it right?)

    I followed Yoast directions on how to set up the robots.txt file so that the googles dont pick up my affliate links.

    I also have been using amazon wordpress product in a post plugin and I have no idea if that can be cloaked or even needs to be.

    Do i really have to manually insert a cloaked link of every product i intend to sell?

    How can I automate this?

    Anything out there that can be later incorporated with other affiliate networks or cpa networks?

    Well just using GoCodes on WP would be good for redirection. However, if you need something more for cloaking why not make it that when people click on the "buy now" it opens an incognito (on chrome, not sure what its called on Firefox) window with an iframe of the product with your affiliate ID. I am not sure if Amazon allows it because I am not really doing amazon affiliate sites, but threw it as an idea just in case.

    Amazon does not allow iframes and I don't even know how to code something like that unless I found some script.

    I'm using geo cities theme and am trying to find easy way to add Amazon or google affiliate links to related posts I think lol.
