This is a good technique, but what you're essentially doing is charging $27 for showing people a few lines of code. I don't see how you can charge more than $7 for this, if you have to charge anything at all.

If you have purchased this and read it, then you know that it is more than just "a few lines of code". Even so, if you use affiliate marketing as a viable income stream, then paying $27 for the information contained in this WSO is invaluable, certainly worth even more than $27.

I appreciate a good WSO that can be had for $7 or so, but I have also bought some higher-priced WSOs (like this one) that have proved themselves worth more than their weight in gold. Even though I do not use the methods in this WSO on all of my sites, the sites that I have built using them ranked better and faster than my previous sites on which I use regular affiliate links.

It depends on your financial situation, of course, and how well you know your own work ethic and motivation as to whether you will actually input the required time and effort, but $27 is not unreasonable at all - well worth it to me. Use your own sense of judgement, but this product is of quality and does what it says.

I took a screen shot just so I could prove someone actually said this.

No one is selling just code. You're getting information you did not have before and a method to help improve your SEO rankings. SEO rankings = traffic = money. Simple as that.

This is a method you will not find anywhere else. And the price is $47. The $27 is a special forum offer.

If you visit the hospital in terrible pain and the doctor gives you one little pill that solves the problem, do you say it is just a little pill and there should be no charge?

If your house is flooding and your valuable possessions are about to be ruined, and a plumber with a "special tool" saves you in 30 seconds of work, do you rip him for charging to use his knowledge and tool?

When I originally created the Webmaster's Legal Guide for Warriors it was from a case where a company had essentially messed up one word in their legal terms, and the mistake cost it $500,000. One word. $500k! How much do you think that company would have paid beforehand if they knew the cost?

Whether it is a line of code, a little pill, a twist of a special tool, or one word, that is not what you are buying. You are buying the information, the results, a method you can use and profit from.

If your rankings improve and you make some money, do you really care if it is from a few lines of code or a hundred lines?

My products are unique. They are the result of years of hard work and imaginative practices. I have spent thousands of hours on IM. Something like Squeeze Links does not happen in 5 minutes. My computer is littered with code and files from hundreds tests while trying to accomplish something.

You just bypassed years of work, hundreds of tests, and were given a unique method for $27.

Thank you for saying it is a good technique.

Thanks for the detailed response. This is your product and you can charge for it whatever you feel it is worth, but surely I'm entitled to my opinion as well.

To be fair, to me the most valuable and unique information you provide is the discoveries you made regarding how your affiliate links affect your rankings, so overall I did get a lot of value out of this.

Hi. Just wanted to know if:

- Is the software/code is still available?
- Somebody has had any positive result so far?
- Does it work with phpBay and dynamic sites?

Thanks!

burromatic, thanks for stopping by.

Squeeze Links is still available, but the price is about to go up. I was creating additional information for members today.

It works great. Yesterday I noticed a phpBay site was getting traffic and making commissions. Checking my website notes, my last entry was May 25th and it said the site was not in the top 100 of Google / changing to Squeeze Links. Today, it is #2 in Google. So, in the last 4 months I did nothing to the site except switched to this method, added no backlinks, and I'm thrilled.

The reason you did not get an earlier response is I am still corresponding with Wade at phpBay about the modifications I made to his script to incorporate Squeeze Links. I use this method with phpBay and dynamic sites. However, it required a phpBay API script modification. Right now there is no time frame for when, or if, anything may be made available to phpBay script owners, and any announcement would likely be made in the phpBay forum.

I purchased. I'm not too good with programming. I'm trying to follow the steps but I just can't seem to make it work. I'm so frustrated

Can anyone help, or does anyone know where I can get help for this? Of course I'm willing to pay for the service...

diggo, there is a support desk for help. No programming is required and you can cut and paste from the sample files. But if that is an issue I have a new project with an "easy button" that will be rolled out within a week or two where just one line is added to your web page.

Again, this is not a support forum and from your post I obviously cannot help you or tell you what needs to be fixed. There is a contact link on the website and in the members area. Please use it so I can look at your setup.

My attempt to buy 'Squeeze Links' has run into difficulty.

On Oct 8 I paid $27, and after clicking 'Return to Merchant'
link the message simply said something like
'Waiting for PayPal Verification'.

After about a minute the transaction process died.

I instantly received from PayPal their receipt confirming
the amount of $27 has been paid.

I then checked to see whether the transaction has appeared in
My History of WarriorPlus Purchases in the WarriorPlus account,
and it hasn't.

Next stop is this message.

Would you please look into this and let me have a
download link to the product.

According to PayPal receipt here is the
Transaction ID: 96604511NP0403822

Your affiliate who promoted Squeeze Links is HP Jeschke
(I have no complaints about HP - he is a good man).

Vira, thanks for your interest, and I am not sure where the problem is or what you were buying, but you did not order anything from me. There is nothing showing for you in PayPal, your transaction ID does not exist, and there is no transaction record in WarriorPlus. I suggest you followup with PayPal and confirm that you actually paid, and see who you paid.

Kindsvater, thanks for your post 63 above, in response to my post number 62.

Let me deal with your response point by point.

I am not sure where the problem is

I wrote: On Oct 8 I paid $27, and after clicking 'Return to Merchant'

'Waiting for PayPal Verification'.

After about a minute the transaction process died.

or what you were buying
I wrote: My attempt to buy 'Squeeze Links' has run into difficulty.

I wrote: Your affiliate who promoted Squeeze Links is HP Jeschke

your transaction ID does not exist
I wrote: According to PayPal receipt here is the

I wrote: I then checked to see whether the transaction has appeared in

and it hasn't

I suggest you followup with PayPal and confirm that you actually paid
I wrote: I instantly received from PayPal their receipt confirming

who you paid
I cannot reveal the exact description of the recipient's PayPal account
for reasons of security. I am, however, confirming
that the person to whom the payment has been made is HP Jeschke,
the promoter of affiliate link to your product Squeeze Links.

I suggest you followup with PayPal
Before I follow-up with PayPal, the WarriorPlus advice is that I should follow the procedure in this order:
(1) Contact the vendor (that is you - and I have done that)
(2) WarriorPlus (I have already checked My History of WarriorPlus Purchases in the WarriorPlus account)
(3) And lastly resort to PayPay complaints procedure.

I would certainly follow-up with PayPal but they are saying this, and I quote,
"let the seller know why you are opening this dispute. Be as specific as
possible about the problem and let the seller know how they can help you
by providing some options for resolution".

Looking forward to your reply.

Vira, there was apparently some 'glitch' when the transaction process died for you. But please understand on my end there is no record of any transaction. Please contact the affiliate and ask that they go into their WarriorPlus account and click "Resend Receipt" for your purchase. The Squeeze Links registration system for Warrior affiliates is tied into WarriorPlus. Click on the link provided by WarriorPlus and this will let you register for an account.

The contact form worked fine. Received your message and sent you a reply. You have Squeeze Links working for some, but not all links on your page. Sent you an email explaining what you did differently for some links that caused them not to work.

Hi Brian,

Can this be used on web 2.0 properties like Blogger, HubPages, Squidoo as well?

Thanks,

Nelin, partially. Squeeze Links uses a method to (1) remove (hide) a link on the web page from Google, and (2) employ back-up countermeasures to block Google in the event the main method should ever fail.

The main 'hiding' of links can only be done on your website.

The back-up countermeasures can be used with web 2.0 and third party sites. You will still need your own website. I use these countermeasures myself on places like Facebook.

I'm surprised more people didn't jump all over this or maybe they just didn't want to comment after buying. It's been almost a year now so does this still work?

How on earth do you have time to practice law if you're doing all this programming? I'm guesssing you must be the Head Partner with associates working at your law firm while you do what you love.

Programming and coding software that works so you proudly share it with others because helping people is what you do. Money has nothing to do with why someone in your position comes here.

Money is always a result and never a good reason to do anything because it simply won't work. That's why 95% of the people who go online to make extra money never do - not without a good enough reason to keep going and failing until you finally do succeed.

Still works for me. I have dozens of sites using Squeeze Links and just created a new one yesterday. Once you have the files and system in place for one website it is easy enough to copy them over to new sites.

So you know, I have a degree in programming and enjoy writing programs / software / code / apps - however it is called.

Here's my thinking about this...

It doesn't matter how much you make per hour - it is still hourly work. You stop working and you stop getting paid.

But, if your site ranks for search traffic you can get passive income day after day after day without needing to do much, if anything. One of the problems getting affiliate sites ranked are the affiliate links. To me, the obvious solution is a technique like Squeeze Links, or my other product Elf Links, which removes the links from ranking equation.

Ok, After 30 minutes of bouncing around these threads I have just 2...uh 3 questions that will probably sound dumb to those with the answer but here goes:

1 - What's the diff between Squeeze Links and Elf Links?
2 - Will it work with an affiliate site (Shopzilla API) that has 20,000 pages?
3 - Are instructions available on "How to implement" for a non-Wordpress site comparison shopping site that I have - pic-n-save.com?

Anything that helps get around the dictatorial edicts handed down from "Mount Google" is OK in my book.

1. Both attack the issue of "hiding" links but do so in different ways. Squeeze Links moves the links off the page with JavaScript and requires some file setup.

Elf Links "injects" the links into your page after a browser / bot loads the page. The script requires a mysql database, which is why it started as a WordPress plugin, but now can also be used without WordPress.


2. This is where we have an issue.

Elf Links is strictly one link created at a time on a page. The plugin is not suitable for 20,000 pages.

The non-WordPress version I have privately modified and been running on sites for a few months testing things out, which has also eliminated the need for a database. For this I am using eBay affiliate sites with thousands of pages. I don't know enough about the Shopzilla affiliate link to know how adaptable it is. If the link is the same except for changing a product ID then I can likely create a modification.

Squeeze Links at first glance is also a one link created at a time system. However, I also have it running on affiliate sites with thousands of pages and links by using php to pass variables to a Squeeze Links file. Depending on the affiliate setup, one line of code can handle thousands of different affiliate links.

You will need to be familiar with php to attempt something like this.

However, a problem I see is you already have pages created. I do not know how easy it would be to modify your existing website to use Squeeze Links.

There are two issues: passing variables to a file so mass numbers of pages can be handled, and also modifying the links on each page so they are no longer html links. Depending on how your pages are created this is either a simple task or impossible.

3. There are general installation instructions, but you have a unique setup using a specific affiliate program I have not used and cannot tell how easy, or even if using either system is possible with Shopzilla.

Shopzilla, though is on my "to do" list to check out for my own use, and when I create scripts and have used them I often do a public release.

Either system will work to get rid of the naked ClickBank links on your site.

If you don't mind, you have a few issues to consider vis-a-vis Google: ClickBank links, Shopzilla affiliate links, duplicate content, and thousands of pages which require careful planning before changing your site. You're also providing tons of user data to Google via Adsense and Google Analytics.

Hi Brian,

Do you know if SqueezeLinks can work with SBI (SiteBuildIt) sites? I am creating and uploading my own html but wasn't sure if it could work with SBI.

Thanks,

Jeff

Jeff,

I don't know enough about SBI to definitively answer. But if you can create and upload your own pages it shouldn't be an issue.

If you get SqueezeLinks please post back and let us know if there is a problem. If it can't work I'll give you a refund.

Brian,

Just purchased and read through the information you provided. I feel confident that SqueezeLinks will work on my SBI site.

Thanks,

Jeff

Hello Brian,
I have a question as I'm still unclear after reading all of the above posts .
Would squeeze links would work for a Youtube video ?
That is affiliate links that are used without the use of a website just direct to the vendors site .

I'm also assuming that sqeezelinks & elflinks also reduce lengthy links into something readable much like tiny links do.

Thanks in advance.
Keren

Keren,

Squeeze Links does not "reduce" links like Tiny Links. There is no point in that, and not much point in Tiny Links, since Google still sees the link and simply follows it.

There is no html link, ugly or nice, on the page. That is the idea.

You need to have a website. I am not sure how one has a link in a YouTube video, and that link goes directly to a vendor's site, and you do not have any website. No doubt some really sneaky stuff can be done, and Squeeze Links is one of my tricks, but at some point you need to make use of your own website. Otherwise, if Person X is viewing Website Y that has a direct link to Website Z, you're completely out of the picture. That is how the Internet works.

The full Squeeze Links protection system is intended to work with links placed on your site. You can use part of it, but not all of it, with links placed on third party sites like YouTube. But even then you need to have a website to run the traffic through.

Thanks Brian for the clarification.
I get you I would need a domain for collecting emails instead of sending everyone straight to the vendors site.
I take your point about all the links being transparent on the site, but I suppose it's still a good idea to shorten them from the ugliness.

I"l buy this to protect myself from google following me around after all that's what it's for.

Many thanks for your help.

Squeeze Links has nothing to do with emails and I never said anything remotely like that. Squeeze Links needs certain files to be used, and you need a domain where the files can be uploaded.

Well, I tried to buy it. What I got when I clicked on the button was:

This Product is not available for sell [sic]

Fiddler, I just replaced the PayGear order link with a quick Warrior Payments button. Let me know if that works, and I dropped the price for the hassle.

The irony is new PayGear "updates" to their system check to see if an order link is on a page, and this product began having problems because PayGear could not detect the Squeeze Link I was using on my website for ordering. Squeeze Links work great. Sometimes too good. LOL.

That is not true, PayGear did not update their system to check to see if order links are on the page, at least not after it is verified . There is a human who goes through the pages to see if someone has changed their order buttons so the vendor is not stealing from PayGear affiliates.

Chris, that is not true. PayGear now has a "verify" option to click which checks the product setup. What the purpose is does not matter. That is not the setup when I first started using PayGear.

When my products were first setup in PayGear the setup worked great and a lot of sales have been made. Then the 'verify' system was added and clicking it not only fails to verify order buttons, it removes the ability to sell existing products that have demonstrably been working.

I've mentioned this frustration to you before about what is happening in my account.

If you want to discuss your service you can do it off my sales thread. I've been one of your biggest supporters on the forum over the years and the continued shift to Warrior Payments and JVZoo has only been out of necessity.

As I said our system does not check to see if order links are on the page after the initial verify. In your case we saw you had changed the order buttons on a manual check. But this is not a new feature; verify button was added in 2013.

If you wish to discuss you are welcome to PM me any time, I reached out after seeing your initial post, but did not hear anything back. Always hate losing a customer.

No Chris, that is absolutely not what happened and this is not the first time you've lied about your service. Problem solved though, PayGear is not a payment option for this WSO. Get off my thread or I'll have a mod remove you.

Concerning your Post #79: Are you kidding? You're not sure how one has a link in a YouTube video ...? There are several ways. An easy way, and the most common, is to put your link in the Description, which is a block of text under the video,. The way "you do not have any website" is to link directly to the vendor's sales page. In other words, instead of giving a URL to a website of your own, you give the URL that links to the vendor's website, and in that URL is encoded your affiliate ID, just as it would be (or could be) on your own website, if you had one. It's called direct linking. You didn't know that?

And as I said there are other ways. To learn how to do those, why not google it? Or do a search for it on YouTube, where you may very well see URLs that link directly to vendors' sites--URLs put there by people that do not have any website. Or do a search here on WF for most any WSO on how to do affiliate marketing using YouTube.

Warcher - to use Squeeze Links requires a file be uploaded to your website which works in conjunction with special coding on the web page where an html link is normally used.

You cannot do that with YouTube. Period. You can't upload files to YouTube such as php files, Javascript files, html files, etc. You cannot add special coding - or any html coding - to what you can enter in YouTube.

Direct linking by using a link with your affiliate link is - ahem - what is being avoided by Squeeze Links. The whole point of the system is to not have an affiliate link that Google can see.

That is why you need your own website. Good luck with your marketing.

Squeeze Links is theme independent, even WordPress independent, so there shouldn't be a problem with Thrive. I've used Squeeze Links with WordPress, but have not tried it with Thrive..
