Top 5 Premium Affiliate Link Cloaking WordPress Plugins

Sharing is caring!

It's painful.

When a group divides into two groups.

It happens everywhere.

People choose their own sides.

They always want to stay on the right side.

Maybe, one day you would have to make such a decision…


This sounds misleading!

I'm not talking about college politics…

No. Why would I do that?

In fact, I'm talking about PPC advertising and Affiliate Marketing.

We bloggers get divided when some of us choose PPC model and others choose Affiliate Marketing to monetize the blogs.

Jolted you at the right time…

If you kept on thinking otherwise, this all won't make any sense to you.

I'm very much into Affiliate Marketing. In fact, I keep on learning it.

In the past, I have published an article about my mistakes in affiliate marketing.

You already know that this article is about Premium Affiliate Link Cloaking WordPress Plugins…

What if I would have written just two introductory lines and start mentioning the list of 5 plugins…

You won't be able to read this part:

Every visitor is a different person. Maybe, a reader lands on your blog, and looking for a solution, and finds your tutorial on that topic…

The reader reads your tutorial and finds out that the solution requires a certain product to buy… Once the reader moves the cursor on the image or text, the link which shows up look a little unprofessional.

Maybe, a long, coded, and dirty.

Your reader suddenly thinks these three things:

  1. Is it a legit product?
  2. Would there be a secured checkout?
  3. Should I trust this review?


Suddenly two different options come into the mind.

Should I go for it?


Should I ignore it?

The next part is the solution.

That's why we use link cloaking plugins. I have seen some bloggers using URL shortener sites, but that is never a good practice.

It's a bit psychological thing.

You are promoting something you trust.

Make sure that you start using the product first before you promote.

Just like Kulwant did.

He tested the Long Tail Pro, found great results, and then decided to promote it.

Every successful affiliate marketer does that.

The Last Part

So, will you keep using that strange and weird affiliate links or give these link cloaking plugins a try?

If you're promoting products from Clickbank, Amazon, and Commission Junction,

Have you tried to put your cursor onto your affiliate banner?

Just try it once… (don't click just put the cursor on)

I just want you to see the link of your affiliate ad…

Imagine, when a reader gets attracted towards your banner ad and right before the click, your reader sees the link which sounds crazy!

What would happen?

You know that what could happen after that!

Obviously, there will be doubts and thoughts

    Track Zilla team

    • Hi Team TrackZilla,
      I’m glad to feature some of the top premium plugins of this category. I hope you enjoyed the review. And, thanks for sharing your views with us.

  3. Great article! Thank you very much Hassaan.
    One question though – what about Amazon?
    Do they frown upon using cloaking plugins? I think I have heard something about it.

    Thank you once again!

    • Bartosz,

      Thank you so much for your comment. As far as Amazon is concerned, people hesitate to cloak the links and their skepticism is the result of mixed opinions about cloaking the Amazon links… The best way to deal with this kind of situation which shows nothing but uncertainty is to avoid the use/adoption of that product/service/strategy.
