    edit board and add in description, like you would on your youtube video. You could also watermark your website in the photo.

    Hi,

    You'll need to cloak them first.
    Then, preferably, put pictures on your blog or site and pin them. Read my tutorial if you don't know how to do that.

    Seb.

    PS: When I want to make a direct link I use my custom cloaking script that can include a picture (I've added this feature specifically for Pinterest).

      Hi OldLodgeSkins,

      Do you think this robot is really good results? If I want to buy it, what do I need to do? to buy a proxy? Buy a a lot of pinterest account?

    You're welcome.

    Would be nice if you can cloak your affiliate links behind a website/domain that you own... instead of just a raw affiliate link.

    Buy a new domain with the sole purpose of creating cloaked links or just use some existing domain you have; if you use your amazon affiliate link direct on Pinterest it will be replaced.

    That's why you've got to use a script like mine... The link goes to your website and then the visitor is redirected after a few seconds. I've never had any problem with it!
    Oh and by the way, don't bother using bit.ly... They seem to be blocking these.
    ALWAYS test your own links - this doesn't apply only to Pinterest.

    I believe the only long-term way to get your affiliate links on Pinterest is to NOT put them on Pinterest. As they get more popular, they're also getting smarter about what us marketers want to do on their site. Like facebook.

    I know a few guys who use Pinterest by driving people to a blog. The blog has a few good posts full of pictures like the ones on Pinterest. The blog also has tons of ads. Again, these ads are related to the content.

    Add your own banners to the blog, and boom. There's your affiliate link. The secret here is that you're not tricking anyone. Trickery only lasts so long...

    What script you use? Can I do that with some WP plugin?

      Yes you can do that with "Simple URLs" wp plugin.

    It's a custom one I've made myself. You can actually get it on my newest website. More details: Link cloaking: custom redirection script with delay - Software Coaching - you'll get an idea of how it works. It's quite simple actually. And it is standalone, doesn't require WP - doesn't even need a database.
