    Question Free Wordpress Link Cloaker?

    All of the "official" wordpress plugins for link cloaking are bogus. They are really link maskers.

    Does anyone know of a free Wordpress plugin that will allow actual link cloaking and not just link masking?

    Thank You.

    Are you talking about cloaking as in the "SEO" technique or something else?

    Well, in this case by link cloaking I mean that when a person clicks on one of the affiliate site links on my site, not only is the URL masked by a redirect URL so they cannot see the ugly affiliate link in the task bar, but when they click on the link it appears to stay in my domain and it does not show in the address bar that they are on another domain.

    You're talking about a frame in that case. The problem you're going to have is that if the address bar doesn't show they're on another domain, it won't change when they click URLs. That frustrates users and ends up creating abandonment issues.

    If I were you, I'd do something like this and let the user see the end URL. A lot of them will strip out the affiliate stuff anyway.
