or something like this?
Well, that is why we should cloak your affiliate link. To attract more people to click on it and they might buy the stuff from you and you will gain the comission. So, here is one of my trick in this art of affiliate link masking and cloaking.
First, just setup a new blog at blogspot. I use blogspot since it is free and you can have the sub-domain from it for your affiliate program link masking. You also can try other free web hosting that offer HTML in it.
After you have register your new blog at blogspot, go to layout. Then, click on Edit HTML like the follow picture.
Then, at the bottom of the code box, click on Revert to classic Template. The layout will be revert into the old blogspot template.
Then, delete all the code in the textarea. We gonna add the code to mask and cloak our affiliate link. Now, copy the code below and paste it into yours. All you have to do is replace the affiliate link with your own affiliate link.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 FRAMESET//EN"> <HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE>Title of your Affiliate Program</TITLE> </HEAD> <FRAMESET ROWS="100%"> <FRAME SRC="your_affiliate_link_here"> <NOFRAMES> <HEAD> <TITLE>Title of your Affiliate Program</TITLE> <META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="0; URL='your_affiliate_link_here'"> </HEAD> <BODY> <P>Your browser does not seem to support frames or frame support has been disabled.</P> <P>Please <A HREF="your_affiliate_link_here">click here</A> to proceed to the site.</P> </BODY> </NOFRAMES> </FRAMESET> </HTML>
Just replace the your_affiliate_link_here with your own affiliate link. Eg: http://www.perniagaaninternet.com/rahsiaIM/index.php?ref=downloadkan. You also need to replace your Title of your Affiliate Program. Eg: Rahsia Usahawan Internet.
Then, copy the code and paste it to your blogspot. You now can save it and start promoting your new affiliate link webpage to your blog and your friends. You view my example of the page that i has made, Rahsia Usahawan Internet : http://rahsiaim.blogspot.com/. Do not forget to register too oke. Haha.
