    Hi Kulwant,

    Thanks for another awesome post.

    Though most of the bloggers would consider AdSense as a prime source of income, a large portion of professional bloggers have been using affiliate marketing. If done properly, affiliate marketing can do wonders of wonders. We have heard that top bloggers having affiliate earnings double or triple than their AdSense. What about you Kulwant, what is your prime source of monetization?

    I have been using WP link cloacker, wasn’t satisfied with it. I was looking for a few alternatives, which I didn’t found worthy enough alternative for it. I didn’t knew there were heck loads of alternative to choose from.

    Thanks again,
    Sourav

      Sourav, when I started blogging, AdSense was the prime target for me.. but as I spent few months, I got to know the truth.

      Now affiliate marketing is my prime source of income and I am really loving it. :)

      From all these, I would suggest to go for Pretty Link Lite plugin..

    These plugins are really compulsory for all who are doing affiliate marketing. It decreases the 100 characters affiliate link in few characters. I heard about these plugins a few months ago, now, I came to know a lot about these plugins. If in future, I chose doing Affiliate Marketing, I’ll be surely using these.

    Thanks

    Hi Kulwant

    Using Affiliate Link Clocking plugins is a great idea to make Affiliate URLs user friendly & identifiable But it is more important to hide them from search engines as they negatively impact your SEO. I always do this from robot.txt. Do you also use any technique to hide those links?
