In this article, I am going to tell you about a very useful WordPress plugin that makes it very easy to shorten, cloak, share and track your affiliate links.
The plugin is called Pretty Links and is completely free to do everything that you need, you can upgrade to the Pro version if you wanted.
I mainly use this to shorten Affiliate links and track them.
For this example, I am going to use Conexa.com, when you have installed Pretty Links and activated it, in the dashboard at the top, you will see the ADD NEW tab, when you have selected that, you will be taken to a page where you put the link you want to shorten or track etc.
As you can see, I have filled out the information, when you have done that click Update.
Here you can keep track on how many click/visits your URL gets. This plugin is also very useful for affiliate marketing when it comes to social media.
If you put affiliate links on Facebook, they get deleted as FB doesn’t like them, with Pretty Links, you can cloak your affiliate link which then allows you to post on Facebook without them being removed or you getting banned.
This is one of my favourite plugins, I hope that people find this helpful, I think it is a MUST if you use WordPress. If anybody else uses this plugin, please share your experience in the comments section below.
