How to Mask Your Affiliate Links

You always want to make your affiliate links appear to go to another page on Your Website, or Landing Page Address.  This gives more credibility to the visitor than http://www.myaffiliatelink.com where the customer can delete your affiliate code before going to the link to buy from the actual vendor.

People do this just to keep you from getting a dime, even though it does not reduce the cost to them whatsoever.  People are just this way in many societies.  So, you have to mask the link to make money.

Here is the first code and how to use it.
This is written in "Notepad" found in all Windows Operating Systems.  Apple has similar.  It is saved out as a .PHP file extension instead of a.TXT extension and place it in a website directory such as http://www.mysite.com/
c/product.php  . You can use any directory you like however.

<?php
header( 'Location: http://www.mywebsite.com' ) ;
?>

Just change the mywebsite.com address to the Affiliate Link.  Just make sure the ' mark is at the end as in the coding example.  It will instantly redirect your visitor to the product.  Just add as many .PHP files as needed for different affiliate links.  Each file works like a web page.  Your link to http://www.mywebsite.com/c/product.php  goes to the file you just created in Notepad and saved out as product.php  or whatever you wanted to call it .PHP.

Now your link goes to the file that looks like a page on your website with a .PHP file extension instead of .htm or .html .  This works for all links that does not have an accompanying graphics pixel after the URL.

For those who have tracking graphics attached to the affiliate Link...
For those who have the clear graphic at the end of the link for tracking purposes, you will need to use the second method.

Here is the code: It is a simple web page using a .HTML extension instead of .TXT extension using Notepad to create the file.

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="
refresh" content="3;url=http://www.example.com">
</head>
Affiliate link code with clear graphic at end of code goes here
</html>



This is the simplest web page you can make.  The 'refresh' command makes the page redirect to the url page link.  The 'content' is timed in seconds before redirect. On the URL code in the Meta Tag will not contain any of the tracking graphic code whatsoever.

The full affiliate code will go below the </head> command.  The 3 second delay is to insure the tracking graphic had time to load on the page before redirecting the visitor to the product page.

That is al there is to it!  When using a landing page or web page with a email capture process, just have the lead capture page redirect to your .PHP or .HTML page in some remote subdirectory on your website and have that file redirect your visitor to the product or service you wish to sell them.  It is just this easy!

Also you can use it on YouTube in the description area. A link to your landing page, the landing page link then redirects them to the product, or just use the redirect link as shown above on your YouTube page.
