When it comes to affiliate advertising and marketing I’m sure you understand that the links which are made available to you by the owners of the product are generally large and ugly. And for those of you wondering why more men and women aren’t clicking on your affiliate links you should understand that when they are cloaked this is something men and women be more apt to click on. Not to mention in relation to cloaking your affiliate links you’re going to see that there are several different ways you can do this and some are much better than others. Obviously not all link cloaking will be effective and in the following paragraphs we are going to look at some of the strategies you should use in relation to cloaking your links.
Plenty of men and women don’t realize the necessity of cloaking an affiliate link but you should understand that when men and women see a long link they are less apt to click on it. Obviously when your affiliate link is cloaked it is going to be much shorter and men and women will have more of an inclination to actually click on the link to visit your affiliate page. For those of you that are experienced in cloaking your affiliate links I’m sure you understand that you are able to make it look like men and women aren’t clicking away from your web site to be able to get to the product page.
Two services which are available on the internet for cloaking links are tinyURL and bit.ly, of course, if you are not currently using these I’m sure you have at least heard of these. Mainly because these services are incredibly well known for people who want to cloak affiliate links many men and women will see a link with these in them and still avoid them. So even though the services can be used it is something you should avoid because it’s going to not necessarily improve your click through rate.
If you would like to cloak your affiliate links but don’t make them look like they are cloaked links, you will see that having your own domain is something which will be required so you are able to redirect men and women using sub domains. Obviously this is not something which is free and you will need to purchase a domain name and a hosting account to be able to do this, but you should remember that the hosting account needs to enable you to develop sub domains without limits. When you develop a sub domain you’re allowed to redirect this domain to any web page you want and this would include affiliate links, so when you make a good looking sub domain you will end up getting more clicks. The main reason something such as this can be so effective is simply because when somebody sees a URL like, http://seoelite.askello.com, they’re going to be more apt to click on it than a long affiliate link.
Cloaking your affiliate links is going to be something which will enable you to make more cash as an affiliate because men and women will be more apt to click on these links. You’ll also see that this will be something which is incredibly helpful for those of you using e-mail advertising and marketing because if you place a long affiliate link in an e-mail it could end up getting broken.
