    I'm looking into redirection plugins - I know it's something I should have done a few months ago but my niche isn't very technical (although profitable) so most of my readers won't know what those dirty links are, or care really.

    But anyway, I think it's time to level up my game and begin using a proper plugin to show "prettier" links.

    I am a bit confused about how exactly they work, and how I can check whether they are doing their job correctly (like dropping cookies and such, which is why I hesitated to use them earlier).

    Anyway, after some research it looks like Pretty Link Pro and Thirsty Affiliates are some of the best plugins for this purpose.

    If you have any experience or advice on which is better let me know please.

    They both seem pretty similar. I read a report somewhere that PLP uses a lot of server resources, but that may have been an old issue and fixed.

    Thanks !

    I suggest Thirsty Affiliate because it is more effective than that,

    #Inbuilt affiliate link shortening and link cloaking.
    #Commission protection affiliate link 301 redirection.
    #Add your graphics, images and banners for your affiliate links by easy insertion option.
    #Full backup compatibility.
    #Do Follow/No Follow options in global or per link.
    #Full importing and exporting options via standard backup solutions.

    Thanks for your comment.

    I've been looking into reviews and I'm still torn between the two lol, but it seems like thirsty affiliates looks like the way to go at the moment.

    Been using ThirstyAffiliates FREE version for the last 6 months and I am pretty satisfied. Does what @Monsterer said.
    I am lurking around CSV Importer, Tracking and Stats add-ons.
    Anyone having used any of their add-ons packs around here?
