First let's take a look at the Google Link Shortener.

Here is a link to the tool:

This is an awesome tool that can take long links and turn them into short good looking links that do not look like affiliate links at all.

Say I want to use my WA affiliate link in a post but I do not want it to show up as an affiliate link.

I would take my link, which looks like this:

http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com?a_aid=685886aa

I would add it into the link shortener ( see below )

Then I would click the blue button ( see arrow above )

And the tool will generate a nice short new link (See below )

Now just copy this new link and you have sucessfully made your affiliate link pretty.

This tool also works great for when you are using Twitter as it saves precious charicatures that would otherwise be used up with the longer link.

Hey Shawn, great training as always. Very useful stuff in there. There are so many Google tools some people are not totally aware of so this is very helpful.

Hope you aren't too stiff after your accident my friend? Thanks for posting this.

Cheers
