Default How do I cloak my links in my Aweber email campaign?

Good afternoon!

I am trying to figure out how to cloak my links in my autoresponder messages.

Example: If I'm an affiliate for 'acmehosting.com' I would want the link to appear as 'acmehosting.com' in the email but of course the link would show in the address bar as whatever affiliate link or redirect I choose.

I use Wordpress as my site platform so maybe there's a plugin that would handle this?

Also, I am looking for a free solution IF possible. I know there's stuff like Ninja Affiliate but don't want to spend $ right now if it can be avoided.

Thanks!

Ken

I use this free tool to hide affiliate links. It also helps when Google bots crawl your site if you have affiliate banners/links on there. Free HTML Tool - Profit Protector Affiliate Link Cloaker

I think its what you may be looking for.

This is good for wordpress and static sites and works simply and superbly.

The Simple URLs plugin will do the job and might be what you are looking for..

Doesn't Aweber do it automatically? It seems to for me. It turns them all into clicks.aweber.com links?!

Addendum..

You can see the plugin in action on this blog.

Container Garden

Just hover over the ads on the right to see what kind of link it creates and whether it is what you are after.

If it's aweber (and, as far as I know, any other AR system) it will do it for you - no need for anything.

If you turn your click tracking on in your aweber account it will automatically track the link and cloak it for you. However it has been awhile since I have used aweber myself I have my own self hosted ar so I do not have to worry about paying more then the 50 a month I was already paying for there service.

If you turn click tracking on, AND if you start the link with "http", Aweber will automatically cloak it.

Thanks everyone so much for your help!

Regarding cloaking using Aweber, I was always under the impression that their cloaking looked a little ugly. Also, I wanted to be able to put the link within a sentence wording-wise but maybe I'll take a second look at this.

Thanks again everyone!

Ken

It does not cloak the link in the browser bar though, does it?
