When you become an Affiliate Marketer or reseller for someone's else's products or services, you are provided with a URL (website address). The address or link provided to you, includes your referral ID so that you get credit for sales when orders are placed using your link.
What is Link Cloaking?
No, it's not a scientific term used on Star Trek. Link cloaking is a way to mask or hide the URL code of the Affiliate link. Most online marketers understand this and rely on a cloaking tool for analysis of advertising efforts. Add to this the fact that when marketing reseller products it simply looks more professional and reputable to have an actual domain name. Link cloaking and Masking are a term that for this discussion mean the same thing.
Link cloaking is a common practice used by Affiliate marketers.
In the past there was fear of ID theft or commission theft from not cloaking a link to hide the ID, this is not an issue and we say this based on 20 years of being involved in Affiliate marketing.
In this lesson we introduce you to the URL/Masking/Cloaking Tool
Worldprofit provides all Silver and Platinum VIP Members with a Link Cloaking Tool for use in masking other vendor's referral links.
When you mask your URL, you look more professional by using an actual domain address, and you are then able to use Worldprofit's Ad Tracker Tool to see how many clicks you get on your links. (More on the Ad Tracker tool is included in another lesson).
You can use the Masking/Cloaking Tool to convert the original URL (website address) into your own domain name. This can be used for your Landing Pages, Click Bank product promotion, essentially any Affiliate Marketing products you are promoting. There is no limit on how many URL's you can cloak.
