Quick Links to topics within this page:

Most people online today, especially the people who purchase things online, are not dummies anymore. They generally hover their mouse over a link BEFORE they click it both out of curiosity and security reasons. For example: If you are an affiliate for the software program Backlink Beast when they hover their mouse over your affiliate link they can see one of the following:

  • d06vjj7b6yzq83kdk.hop.clickbank.net/ (direct affiliate link - horrible)
  • site.com/recommend/backlinkbeast/ (affiliate link redirect - better)
  • http://www.backlinkbeast.com (stealth affiliate link - perfect)

Which one do you think they would rather see when they look in the web browser status bar? Which link do you think they are more likely to feel comfortable clicking on?

This is HUGE because an affiliate link looking like an affiliate link is a serious killer of sales for these reasons:

  1. DIRECT AFFILIATE LINKS (not cloaked): [the average person] is going to wonder what's up with such a long, complicated link address. They will either think it's a virus or leads to a fishy webpage or know that something is up. [a more knowledgeable person] is going to know it is an affiliate link and think "I am not going to click that and let them earn money off of me".
  2. AFFILIATE LINK REDIRECT (cloaked): [the average person] is going to wonder why your link to the affiliate product does not go directly to the product web page. "Why is this link pointing to a sub page of this persons site? Are they tracking me?" [a more knowledgeable person] is going to know it is an affiliate link and think "I am not going to click that and let them earn money off of me".
  3. STEALTH AFFILIATE LINK (true affiliate link cloaking): [the average person] is going to trust your recommendation and click on the link because it is "not" ;-} an affiliate link or a funky looking link. [a more knowledgeable person]  is going to trust your recommendation and click on the link because it is "not" ;-} an affiliate link or a funky looking link.

  3. In the left textbox enter the direct link to the website you are an affiliate for. This is the websites real url. If the web address ends in .com, .net, .info, etc., make sure to add a / at the end so instead of  sitename.com   sitename.com/.
  4. In the right textbox enter your affiliate link for the same website. When you sign up as an affiliate this is the link you use to generate commissions for sales you make.
  5. Click the Add button. This will put the value of both textboxes into the list box just below. Keep repeating this process until you have added all your affiliate links. Selecting any of the items you added to the list will bring up a menu that allows you to delete the selected item or edit it.
  6. Enter the full path to where you will save the file on your web server. Don't include the filename and extension. In other words if your websites is http://www.mysite.com and you are going to save the file to the root of your web server then enter  http://www.mysite.com/.  If you are going save the file to  mysite.com/mysite_files/  then enter  mysite.com/mysite_files/.
  7. When you are finished adding links, clicking the Generate Stealth Code + Save button. The file will automatically be saved with the proper name and extension. DO NOT MODIFY IN ANY WAY.
  8. Make sure place the code shown in the textbox with the number 8 point to it in your webpage between the <head> and </head> tags. This code is generated when you click the Generate Stealth Code + Save button in step #7 above,
  9. Upload the file to your web server in the exact directory you specified in step #6 above.

This code is stand alone code. This means you do not have to reference any function calls within the links you are an affiliate for or mess with any Javascript or other code.

This code does NOT reside on another server. unlike the program Ghost Url in which the code resides on THEIR web server. (what if they go out of business? what if they inject code to steal one out of every 10 of the visitor affiliate link clicks??)

It is important that when you create links to affiliate sites that you enter the url EXACTLY as you specified in the textbox with the red number ❸ pointing to it in the image above as per step #3 in How to use Stealth Affiliate Links in AffiliateSwitchblade instructions. In other words if you specified http://www.site.com/ make sure, when you create the link to the website, you enter that url EXACLTY,
not
http://site.com
and not
http://www.site.com
and not
www.site.com
but
http://www.site.com/
(EXACTLY as you specified in step #3 of the instructions).

As specified above you do not have to do anything, when creating links, to make your affiliate links work properly OTHER than, when creating links, you use the exact url you specified in the textbox with the red number ❸ pointing to it in the image above as per step #3 in How to use Stealth Affiliate Links in AffiliateSwitchblade instructions.

TO USE STEALTH AFFILIATE LINKS ON A SITE YOU DO NOT OWN

Many of the third party content creation sites listed in Free Content Creation Sites (weebly is one of them) allow you to edit content that appears between the <head> and </head> tags of the website. Go to the folder where you saved the file as per step ❼ in instructions How to use Stealth Affiliate Links in AffiliateSwitchblade. The file name is affurls.js. Open it with the text editor notepad. Copy and paste the code in the head of the webpage between <head> and </head> tags.
