Hello, there.


I moved one of my websites a couple of weeks ago to a different domain and managed to tear the living "H" "E" double hockey sticks out of the permalinks.

You got it!!


Well, anyhoo, while I am running around the internet, like a chicken with my head cut off, trying to get my links working right I noticed that I need to shorten my links and make them look pretty. Then it occurred to me that I did not know why this is necessary.



Can someone help a bear out and tell me why this is important? I'm sure it is, but why?

You use pretty links to shorten the link and hide the fact that it is an affiliate link

Once you have created each pretty link you can track the clicks of each link

So now you have a way of creating different links with one affiliate link so you can tell which one of them is getting more clicks

Marketing is about data you need to know which links are getting clicked and which ones are not

Now marketing is not guess work

Most people put links on with the chuck it out there and hope I get clicks

Marketers track things to collect data and then make better decisions on their site

Example

One link is in a side banner and one link in on the page in the text you can use pretty links to track if one link is getting clicked or not

TIP

If you are using "hope" as a marking strategy you are in quit lot of trouble

Pretty links also hides your links form google

Living in New Mexico, I can answer #4 for you. We get pack rats. When they are close to human habitation. they will will opportunistically move into the attics, walls of houses, and especially cars. They will chew the wiring of cars. I had a pack rat chew my gas line and caused what could have been a very dangerous situation for me. My gas started leaking and was coming into contact with my muffler, which could have potentially caused my car to explode while I was in it. So that is why rat traps are in the car area of super markets.

The shortened links look better when they can be seen. As well, there are times when you need to enter a link in somewhere and the link to be entered is too large to deal with. I think this is the case with Pinterest that only allows a certain number of characters per post or tweet or whatever.

Thanks, Jimmy. I wasn't even thinking about Pinterest and Twitter and the character count. Thank you.

I use them for all my affiliate links, because pretty link looks nicer, it is very easy when you use the same link on several posts, you just copy the pretty link again, and it has a no-follow this link option, which gives me the idea google doesn't see the affiliate link, but in that I can be wrong, because Google seems to be big brother who's watching you;)

It doesn't hurt any to use them. I knew they were easier on the eye, I just wondered if it was deeper.

The idea of the no follow is brilliant. I hope that is the case.

Thanks so much, Loes.

Uhmmm.... could you explain this "nofollow" stuff to Dumbo?
Why would we want Google to nofollow our links - and when?

Google doesn't like too many affiliate links, for some strange reason, because when you want to make it online you do need them, so when I cut off the follow with a no follow check box, I hope to beat Google in its strategy

You are absolutely right, btw. I have contacted CaseProof LLC, web developers and creators of "Pretty Links."

This is exactly what it is for, however, Loes, make sure to recheck your links for functionality from time to time as the Google Spiders try to render Affiliate Link Blockers useless by " Brute Force."

I just bought the developers Version of the ,"Pretty Link."

I will be in Birmingham tommorow with my Lungs at the VA hospital.

PM me Thursday and we will also CLOAK the links in your website as well as just " No Follow and disguise."
