    The basic process of cloaking affiliate links is simple:

    1. Create a folder from where you'll serve your redirects, I use /out/.
    2. Block the /out/ folder in your domains robots.txt file by adding:Disallow: /out/
    3. Use a script in your redirect folder to redirect to your affiliate URLs.
    Step 2 makes sure search engines won't follow the redirects, but we'll add some extra safety with our script. Step 3 could be as easy as writing each redirect in your redirect directory's .htaccess file manually. I personally prefer something that's a bit easier to manage, which is why I'm giving you a little redirect script I wrote below. As a bonus, this should be easier to get working on NGINX too.

    Is it Google that you're trying to hide your affiliate links from so they can't see them and follow them?
