Hiding affiliate links – a tip for newbies:
Many times I’ll upload a script program like PHP click counter to mask my affiliate links, but sometimes I only have a few affiliate links on a website. Call me crazy :lol:. In those cases I don’t want to bother installing a script program.
Here’s the most quickest, painless method I’ve found yet to masking affiliate links without installing folders or script programs, etc.:
Add this to your .htaccess file:
Redirect 301 /namefile http://cnn.com
Of course you change http://cnn.com to your full affiliate link 😆
/namefile can be whatever you like. Now whenever you link to your affiliate product, use your-domain-name. net/namefile, and your visitors will be swept away to cnn.com once they click that link. The visitor won’t see your affiliate link on your page at all, they’ll just see your-domain-name .net/namefile.
