Cloaking Hoplinks for Clickbank Products

  • Question

I need to know a quick way to cloak hoplinks so it does not show in the URL.
I have something called Affiliate Link Cloaker 2.0, but it says it needs FTP information, Port, and directory information which I don't have because it is already hosted automatically on synthasite.

Is there a simple way to disguise my hoplinks or any other affiliate link? I read a post here but there was no step by step instructions on how to do it.

Many thanks!

Hi SanRamon,

If you want to disguise a url, you can always just use a free url redirection service like http://tinyurl.com or http://cjb.net

No need for ftp access. And tinyurl doesn't even need a signup.

There are many services like this.

Try doing a google search for free url redirection.

Hope this helps

Thanks, gamedemon!

I just tried cjb.net, which works. But it looks I would have to create an account for each link.

I also heard that GoDaddy offers domain forwarding.

I guess I'll do some more searching on Google.

Hi SanRamon,

Godaddy only offers forwarding to domains that you buy. Not something you want to waste on an affiliate link.

If you have multiple affiliate links, than tinyurl.com should do the job. All you have to do is type in your url in the form on the first page, than a new url comes out that hides the original one.

I'll do it right now:

I'll take http://yahoo.com and type it in the form

And I get this:

http://tinyurl.com/2ks

Notice how they both go to the same place.

Tinyurl should do the trick, but if you would like to research other free url redirection services, look at this: http://70.85.114.235/forums/showthrea...

The only problem is that that post was from 2002 and most of the services don't work anymore. So you will be doing some searching.

Hope that helps
