Moving on, it is highly recommended that you learn to utilize this Pretty Link Lite Plugin especially when it comes to masking your Affiliate Links as well. Actually, it is very important in more ways than one.

Understanding Correct Usage of Affiliate Links can benefit you in the long run:

#1: Higher Rankings in Search Engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, maybe

(Search Engines absolutely hate too many Affiliate Links being thrown in Blog Posts.)

#2: Grants a better comfort zone for your audience to be confident towards offers/services you provide.

#3: Allows for a more do-able way of improving testing capabilities.

#4: Enable your level of “revenue” to go higher when generated through your Website.

#5: Full free will to exercise how you can take a raw affiliate link and make it more cleaner.

Objective 1: Shorten Those Long Affiliate Links of Yours

By this I simply mean obtaining a Raw Affiliate Link to a Product/Service/Offer you are promoting into one that make a much better cleaner and more reader comprehensive Affiliate Link through a Plugin called Pretty Link Lite.

In other words, that’s the beauty of using Pretty Link Lite Plugin. You can make something from another Website to act like it is a part of your Website link wise.

Without further ado, we are going to shorten all those strange bizarre looking raw affiliate links into something more professional by nature, a cleaner better readable one that is sure to cause an increase for user experience purposes.

Which of the Following looks more eye appealing?

The 1st Link:{affiliate link} (Raw Affiliate Link)


The 2nd Link: (Made through Pretty Link Lite Plugin)

The 2nd Link looks more cleaner and something more likely to be clicked, am I right?

Another great part of using this Plugin is that you can put your Pretty Links into Groups and keep it more organized that way. You can then easily edit the link and make it into something else in the Control Panel Area.

Objective 2: Centralizing your Main Affiliate Program Offer

The habit one must avoid at all costs is to make a Website that caters to the audience as a huge Affiliate Program Oriented stance on promoting. Many times people fail to realize that their visitors to their Website is more important when they create Content that provides for a better user learning experience. Plus, it is not good to have an Affiliate Link tied into every Blog Post Article and Page on a Website.

And, I know in your mind you are going to be asking me: Why?

Google does not look favorably on a Website that has many Affiliate Links thrown everywhere. If it ever comes across each Single Page on your Website as being just a Affiliate Program based promotion advertisement, it will surely have a bad effect on your overall Rankings as a result.

Be not dismayed as it is quite alright to Promote stuff on your Website. However, if you see yourself constantly promoting the same thing multiple times (for example Wealthy Affiliate), it is wise to have your Offer Page more optimized.

A perfect scenario of this is when you Send your Traffic from One Blog Post to another on your Website. This is internal linking. Suppose you were talking about say how Wealthy Affiliate compares to Empower Network, you can then provide a link where when Clicked transfers your Audience to read Content about The Wealthy Affiliate Review without taking them directly out of your own Website to the real Home Page of the Affiliate Program.

Whenever I speak word of Wealthy Affiliate on my Scam Artist List Blog Post Article, I direct them to see my Wealthy Affiliate Review.

Search Engines like,,, and rarely ever, love internal linking.

Yet, there are many positives regarding the bison.

  • Ability to manage One Page to Optimize Conversion rates better than before.
  • Allows you to live stream test you as the only Testing Page.
  • Allows you to Experiment and Offer Extras (Can lead to mass increase boosting it higher).
  • Improve your Links around to make Google very happy and rise up in Rankings.

Objective 3: Getting Paid For All You Did

Almost all of the Products you see online are associated with an Affiliate Program one way or another. As you are writing up either a Positive or Negative Review about a Product, it is wise to see if the Product was part of an Affiliate Program.

In turn this can only mean 1 thing. MAXIMIZING your Affiliate Program revenue for more Cash Flow. It is bad to leave money on the table just because you failed to Sign Up for another Affiliate Program.

It may be heard to believe this, but regardless of anything, people usually do end up buying the Product within your Website Links should it be either good or bad. As a result, you might as well face facts that you can earn money in between this method.

  2. The Pretty Link Lite plugin seems perfect for link shortening. Affiliate links tend to be ugly and unnecessarily wrong, but this is perfect for tightening things up. Cleaner links can definitely results in more clicks and higher conversion rates. What do they offer through Pretty Link Pro? Just curious as to how different that can be than the free version.

    1. Dear Matthew Thomas,

      Thanks so much for your Feedback, I really appreciate it. 🙂 I think masking an affiliate link makes it look more professional versus it looking weird to the visitor thinking they clicking on some suspicious looking link.

      I am not sure what else they offer for the Pretty Link Pro but it seems to basically represent the same stuff as what you would get for Pretty Link Lite Basic I believe. The Pro has 2 different price ranges though.

      Hope that this helps answer your question. 🙂

      Please feel free to drop by again sometime. 🙂

      Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,
