Affiliate Link Cloaker
I decided to write this how to cloak affiliate links article after watching the video below on affiliate link cloaking.

There's also a video on how to cloak your ClickBank affiliate links.

There are about 3,000 monthly searches on Google on how to cloak affiliate links so there is an interest in this area.

People want to cloak links for several reasons.

Two of the top reasons are to prevent commission theft and to stop people from bypassing affiliate links by shortening the link and going straight to the website to make the purchase.

Other reasons to cloak affiliate links

If you’re using article marketing as a way to drive traffic to your affiliate links you may want to cloak your links.

This won’t work with all article directories, especially the Ezine articles directory. They've gotten hip to the trick because link cloaking has been around for a long time, at least as far back as I can remember.

Ezine articles will not publish your article if it contains an affiliate link.

HubPages is another article marketing venue that will not allow affiliate links. I have personal experience with HubPages.

They banned this blog because it contained affiliate links and that’s against their policy.

Stop Affiliate Link Theft

I didn’t cloak the affiliate links I just removed them

To get back in good graces with HubPages I had to remove the links. One of them I redirected and I’m still getting traffic to the link.

This was a decision I struggled with for a few days as I was making sales and people were clicking on the links.

But the sales and clicks won’t happen if there is no traffic to your website. And for me, HubPages was a major form of traffic.

At one point I was getting more than 300 visits a week from HubPages. Aside from Google's organic search traffic that was my main source.
