I recently read on the forum that when you are using you tube to promote an affiliate offer, it is advised that I redirect my domain name to the affiliate ID or probably cloak the affiliate Id. How do I redirect?

    Or you can use a Redirect script.
    Create a file called "Recommends" or something
    Then create a blank page with the following Meta tag
    <meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="1;URL=h t t p://">
    After URL= put the redirection target

    i've had to space out the http because i cant include links yet.
    Hope that helps.

    There's a plugin called Pretty Link Lite that will do the trick, they also have a pro version with more features.

    Try this:
    Affiliate Link Cloaker

    You can also install WP, create a post & redirect it to any link -- create as many as you want.

      If using WordPress, there's a free plugin called Simple URLs in the plugin section of It's very easy to set up.

    A Domain re-direct is very simple.In Hostgator,it goes like this:

    1)Login to your cPanel

    2)Once you are inside,click on the "Redirects" link

    3)Fill in your domain URL and your affiliate URL in the specified boxes,and hit the "add" button

    4)Now you can use this domain URL in any place instead of your affiliate link

    I am pretty sure,the procedure should be similar with other hosts too.

    A very simple way to do this is with the free GoCodes plugin.

    For some reason when I search for it on the plugins page in my WP backend it doesn't show up but you can find it on the site

    I don't send traffic traffic to opt in pages anymore. I Do This instead...
