    Hi,

    not sure where to post this topic, so I chose this section. I have installed Pretty link lite for 3 years now and in the last half year my sales broke down completely, barely having 1 sale a day. Still have about 400 visitors a day but even the clicks went down about 50-60%.

    I wonder if it is possible that somebody hacked this wordpress plugin? I only use Zanox links on my website. Should I delete pretty link lite and use other ways to cloak my affiliate links?

    I found this explout but am not sure what this is?

    That exploit is a few years old, so if you are running the latest version of Pretty Link Lite then you should be safe.

    Never tried https://www.zanox.com/gb/ , have you tested their links to see that nothing is going wrong when you cloak them with PLL?

    Man I should have think about that :D

    PPL worked pretty good for 2 1/2 years but now I am losing more and more income. Probably it´s time to move on to a different niche. I was advertising prepaid phone cards for the ipad and I guess the good times are over.
