You could do it the old fashioned way. Find some code that will redirect the person when they go to a particular page.

There's HTML, PHP, Htaccess redirects and all kinds in between. You just put the link you want it to redirect to, upload it, test it, and you're done.

Here's an example of an HTML redirect.
HTML Code:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<title>Your Page Title</title>
<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://www.the-domain-you-want-to-redirect-to.com"></HEAD>
<BODY>
Optional page text here.
</BODY>
</HTML>
Then you can name the page/folder whatever you want.

I use php redirects. Simply open a txt file, add the following code to it and rename it from "link.txt" to "link.php"

<?php
header( 'Location: http://www.domain.com/' ) ;
?>

This works just as well.

There's many ways to do it and you don't have to buy anything.

I use the Pretty Link Lite plugin also. It's great for not only cloaking, but also optimizing links. If you need a tutorial how to set it up I have done one here.

Good luck Rosalie!

Yes, this is the most simple way of cloaking. You could use the code above freely.
