Cloak and Redirect Links

Cloak and Redirect Links

Developed By Brontobytes

Compatible with WHMCS v8.10

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. You can use this for any link, not just affiliate links.

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.

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.
