    I have been looking for a solution to automatically cloak affiliate links in wordpress. I do not want to manually cloak them in HTaccess or any other way. How can I automatically create them when I publish a post in wordpress?

    So every outbound link should be cloaked automatically. What script or plugin will do this? Could not find anything and was looking for a while!

    WP Wizard Cloak can kind of do this. Has allot of features, very easy and fast. You still have to create the link and insert it though, but after it's created you can insert multiple links at once or edit multiple links at once. I think it's like 20 dollars for the pro with a coupon somewhere on the web.

    Copy and pasted from another thread:
    "Cloaking is a search engine optimization (SEO) technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's browser. This is done by delivering content based on the IP addresses or the User-Agent HTTP header of the user requesting the page. When a user is identified as a search engine spider, a server-side script delivers a different version of the web page, one that contains content not present on the visible page, or that is present but not searchable. The purpose of cloaking is sometimes to deceive search engines so they display the page when it would not otherwise be displayed (black hat SEO). However, it can also be a functional (though antiquated) technique for informing search engines of content they would not otherwise be able to locate because it is embedded in non-textual containers such as video or certain Adobe Flash components."

    Yeah, I know there are plugins. I just could not find any who does this what I want.

    My site: www.website.com
    Affiliate link: www.makemoney.com

    Every link to makemoney.com/blaproduct1.php should then be www.website.com/go/blaproduct automatically. I do not want to insert/edit 120 links manually.

    You can't cloak links using a Wordpress plugin since the referer string will still be present in the visitor's web browser. You have to have a remote redirect script on another domain to strip out the referer data.

    If you only need to mask the destination URL then it is best to use .htaccess so you only need a line such as: RewriteRule ^go/([-_0-9a-zA-Z]+)/?$ plugins/afflink-redirector-script.php?id=$1 [L,R=301] This will redirect links of the form go/cheap-meds to plugins/afflink-redirector-script.php?id=cheap-meds where the plugin looks up the affiliate link in the database, logs the click, and redirects the browser to your affiliate link.
