Cloak and Redirect Links

Cloak and Redirect Links

Developed By Brontobytes

Compatible with WHMCS v7.4

Affiliate links should always be cloaked – you can do this by using our powerful redirect addon for your links to hide the actual URL and then telling Google not to flow PageRank to them to safeguard yourself against their sensitive algorithm and also future updates.

This addon does a 302 redirect and sends an X-Robots-Tag header along with noindex and nofollow, which makes sure search engines aren’t allowed to index or follow the URLs.

Why cloak and redirect affiliate links?

  • If you search online for it, there are tons of reasons to redirect affiliate links.
  • Ease of management
  • Prevent leaking PageRank to advertisers
  • “Clean” links
  • Search engines encourage the redirection of links

Examples: http://www.yourdomain.com/go/a100 --> http://www.yourdomain.com/aff.php?aff=100
http://www.yourdomain.com/go/g --> http://www.google.com
http://www.yourdomain.com/go/whmcs --> https://www.whmcs.com/features/

Hello

I come back to update my comment, because it must warn the public, following my comment, Brotobytes delete my account, no more possibility to connect and when I do lost password I receive the error message as what the email address is unknown.

Second thing, I get a negative review on facebook 1 star out of 5 with no commantaire from Xenophontas who is in the same city as Brontobytes.

I tell you the links of the images that will show you to be careful with this module provider.

It is not at all professional and not born to make procedures not professional.

I totally disappoint you Brotobytes.

Hello,

I put a negative opinion today because the staff reacts like children, I have a simple problem of accounting due to a payment of VAT that I would not have to pay at the time of the order.

I contact the support and it makes me understand that there is no solution to the problem while he is not even looking for it.

I think he did not understand that the VAT does not belong to them and that it is enough to update his register to recover the amount at the next declaration.

Apart from that the module works very well and I'm glad to have it, but stop reacting like children and professing profession.

This add-on falls into the category of, “I didn’t know I needed it, but boy am I glad I have it.” The examples use ‘go’ as the folder to house the redirects, but you can change this to whatever you want to compliment your site, or further enforce your branding. This is a neat little add-on.
