Hi All - I am a newbie building a website with affiliate links to various products relating to internet marketing. I want to make sure to stay on the good side of Google. Years ago I got the Google slap when I had an online education site with links all leading to the same education affiliate network. I guess Google didn't like so many links with relatively so little text. Anyway, it made it so I couldn't use Google. I am trying to learn about link cloaking. I understand from the Link Cloaking forum that there is link cloaking "type A" shall we say that just changes your affiliate URL to look better (eg I want it to look like the vendor's website, not my affiliate link) versus link cloaking "type B" that makes it so that Google and spiders can't read stuff that they care about (maybe IP address, etc - not sure I am too newbie). My question is: is the link cloaking "type A" that changes my affiliate URL considered OK for white hat? If so, can you recommend a software that does this? I have a WordPress site. Thanks all! Best wishes for a happy and profitable 2012.
