Affiliate Link Plugin Weekend Sale

07 October 2011

Offer Closed


I was asked a few days ago about the links I send out in my emails when I promote other people’s products.

Links like this last one for the TouchBase client plugin:-

Jeff L (hi Jeff) asked which script or plugin I was using.  Well, it’s one of my own plugins, and I realised that while I use it constantly for all kinds of things, I hadn’t promoted this for quite some time.  D’oh!

And the thing is, it’s exceptionally useful and very easy to use as it hooks into the WordPress permalink system.

This is one that’s well worth picking up even if you don’t yet do affiliate marketing because it will track clicks and cloak them if you want it to.  It will also allow you to store details of the affiliate program right inside your WordPress blog.

So how does it work?

After installation and activation, you’ll see a new admin settings menu called “PG Affiliate Link Cloaker”.

Clicking this will take you to a page containing a list of all the affiliate links as you add them.

To add a link, simply create a new Page or Post – we suggest you use Pages, but there might be some circumstances where you want to use Posts.

On the Page creation screen, if you scroll down you’ll see a new section called “Affiliate Link Cloaker”.  There you can add your affiliate link, cloak or hide it from menus and even store your login details for the affiliate program.


Looks pretty good doesn’t it?  I use it all the time to track clicks, I don’t just use it for my affiliate links.

Today Friday 7th October at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EST), I’m making this available in a weekend sale at just $10.00 for the first 25 buyers before including it on the Plugin Great site at a regular price of $27.00.

You can either check back here then, or keep an eye on your email for a reminder.

    Hi Frank,

    Can I ask you a question?

    Let’s say I’m promoting http://www.earth4energy.dom. After your link cloaker, will my affiliate links open as http://www.earth4energy.dom/?hop=affiliateid or as http://www.earth4energy.dom on the browser address bar?

      Hi Chuck,

      It depends on the destination site. If they don’t clear your aff link then it will show.


  2. Rhonda says:

    What type of redirects does this do? 301 or 302, etc.


    • Frank Haywood says:

      Hi Rhonda,

      301 but if you want to change it to a 302, you can just nip in and edit the code in your favourite text editor. ;-)

    I just saw your email making the offer this morning and came quickly, hoping to buy, but you had closed the offer and was unable to buy, a lose-lose situation.

    Best Wishes,
