i would like to know how to cloak an affiliate url and which software to use...
I'll tell you a great software:
It's called BlackHatWorld Cloaking Subforum Search Function v1.0 Beta.
Best of all, it's free.
Adtrackz works very well for this purpose, or you can do a php redirect. Use this code:
Put that code on a notepad, insert your affiliate link, save the notepad on your pc, go to properties a change the extension of the file from txt to php, then upload this file to your server in a folder called something lile recommneds or go or whatever.
try linkmajik d`o`t`c`o`m works well for me, even tracks the hits
yeah the blackhat cloaking software is good
use PHP file to redirect, search for redirect [email protected]
php method will work best
If you are using wordpress, try the plugin "Pretty Link"
That way you don't have to deal with any coding at all
What about the GoCodes plugin if you use Wordpress?
...and somebody resurrected this thread from the dead...
I'll try both, thanks!
right on right on
I don't think a single method that won't get you caught has been mentioned in this thread so far :3 I'm pretty sure a single PHP redirect is going to pass your referer...
if u are not using something free. If u have ur own domain and ur own hosting thing
you can use some php code to redirect to ur affiliate link
This thread helped me alot thanks guys.
There are multiple reasons why someone would want to cloak a link (as opposed to "cloaking" a page) and hiding the referrer is not an issue for some of these.
1. If you want to just make a pretty looking link so visitors don't think you're using an affiliate link and you want to get around virus scanning software wiping your CJ and other links, then a simple PHP header() call works well as stated here.
2. If you are using Wordpress you have the option of many plugins - Redirection, gocodes, prettylinks, Soda Popper, etc. Most can do some level of counting clicks but they aren't full stats programs. But for simple link cloaking and tracking who is clicking on what links they work really well.
3. If you want to hide the referrer (for example, to hide your super ***** traffic sources from a CPA program) the you can use a tracking script like T202, CPVLab, etc. or you can use DMR (double meta refresh) or scripting to wipe the referrer.
I use referer.us to cloak my urls
this is a new find for me and seems to be exactly what we need for cloaking
