    Spend 2 hours on WordPress creating a movie blog but then I found out that WordPress do not accept Affiliate Links to the blog since I using Filesonic to let the users to download the movies.

    I read that there are many WordPress plugins to hide the Affiliate links but this may hurt the blog in future since it says

    'When WordPress.com encounters these links on your blog, we automatically take action based on the type of link detected. WordPress.com may:

    Change the destination URLs of these links to this page;
    Issue a warning to the blog owner requesting that these links no longer be posted; or;
    Suspend the blog in question'

    What is the best way to fix this problem? or should I host the movies in other free web-server that do not provide any affiliate links but then I will promote the blog for free and not make any money.

    Please check my blog - filemovie4you(dot)wordpress(dot)com and let me know your option on it any help is welcome.

    Use shortening service like bit.ly. Works just fine for me.
