Of course, you will replace "youraffilaitelink.com" withrepparttar affiliate product link that you are promoting. Be careful to keeprepparttar 148232 "refresh" line all together, without adding extra spaces.

Save your page file name. Example: http://yoursitename/affiliateproduct.html. Uploadrepparttar 148233 page to your website server and use this URL in your ads or on your website.

2. Use one ofrepparttar 148234 many software programs, affiliate maskers, that will create your redirect pages for you. The advantage to using one of these programs is that your affiliate ID is encrypted and therefore hidden from anyone who tries to see it by viewingrepparttar 148235 source code on your site. Type "affiliate link cloaker" or "affiliate link masker" in your browser and take your pick.

3. Use a URL shortening service such as http://tinyurl.com or http://shorturl.com to shorten your links. This method is better than nothing, especially when you have one of those very long affiliate links.

4. Use an Ad Tracking Service or Script to create your advertising links. By rights, you should be tracking your ads anyway so you know which ones are working and which are not. This method is my preferred method since it cloaks your link and counts your hits both atrepparttar 148236 same time. Type "Ad Tracking" into your web browser to find hundreds.

There are other methods available that use scripts and frames pages to hide affiliate links. Most of these are quite complicated so I won't try to explain them here.

The point to this article? If you are going to sell affiliate products, ALWAYS hide your affiliate link. Even thoughrepparttar 148237 above methods are not 100% foolproof, you will get paid your commissions more often by using them. If you don't make it easy for them to "cheat," then they will be more likely to buy through your link - which is just what you want them to do!
