I personally use the plugin Pretty Link for my affiliate links. You can shorten links and cloak them for Google. It gives you stats about which links are being clicked on too. I hope that helps.

Thank you, but I don't know Amazon allows me to do that

Why not? Amazon will only see the real link, not the "pretty" one.

Hi, 3SeasonGift, again. I would try BIT.LY.COM and see if Google will accept the very shortened URL Bit.ly will create for you. I use it all the time, but don't remember if I've tried with Google ...you know, good or bad ...Google is rather 'picky" on what it accepts, try it and see what happens. I suggest you keep Bit.ly handy and use it for others as well ...it is FREE!

Hi Rizzer the link you give it to me no longer can be used
http://www.amazon.com/dp/"product It tells you go to the home page I want, but don't do any good.

The link is just an example with all the product and affiliate id stripped out.

Its against Amazon,s terms and conditions to shorten or cloak the affiliate links they give you. Doing so will surely get you kicked out of the amazon affiliate program.

You can make your own links using this method

http://www.amazon.com/dp/"product code"/?tag="affiliate ID" but you have to make sure you get it correct or you won,t get paid.

Amazon used to have their own short link service but I,m pretty sure its long gone now.
