My Link Cloaking experience…
I remember when I was so frustrated trying to find out how to hide an affiliate link in my browser and just did not know what to search for online. So it took me a while to find out that most people refer to it as masking or cloaking affiliate links. It takes a bit more work than knowing how to hide a link with a word. After doing this about a couple times, it would become a piece of cake. Below there are two videos…part I and Part 2.
