ThirstyAffiliates Plugin Review-: ThirstyAffiliates is a very popular WordPress affiliate management plugin among bloggers that cloak your affiliate links for free. It is very easy to set up and comes with a user-friendly interface. It is available in both paid and free versions. ThirstyAffiliates gives bloggers the tools they need to monetize their WordPress website with affiliate marketing.
ThirstyAffiliates Plugin Review-:
You can group your affiliate links into hierarchical categories. eg. placing all Amazon links within an “Amazon” category, or all software links in a “Software” category. Managing your links in ThirstyAffiliates means there is only one place to change the destination URL if required rather than having to go back and replace the link in potentially hundreds of articles.
You can choose from 301 (default), 302 or 307 redirects, all of which are safe link redirects. Link redirects protect your affiliate links from being scrapped and replaced by malware in your visitor’s browser. There is also a smart uncloaking feature so if the affiliate program you are using (such as Amazon Associates) does not like your links behind a redirect, you can still use ThirstyAffiliates. Your links can be conditionally uncloaked on the front end.
You can even add images and banners to your affiliate links and recall them for easy insertion when writing your content. Simply click the new “TA” affiliate link button on your editor, click the cog to open the Advanced Link Picker and search & choose the image you want to insert and it will be inserted pre-wrapped in your affiliate link.
