My affiliate link isn't cloaked in the CB Profit Poster table!

Solution

The cloaking of URLs only works on the blog itself. For example, your affiliate link for product "Valuable Product" may be http://yourID.merchant.hop.clickbank.net

When a visitor comes to your blog and hovers their cursor over the link, it will read something like:

http://your-blog.com/to/this-valuable-product-solves-problem-xyz

After the visitor reaches the merchant's site, it's up to the merchant whether they will redirect the visitor to something like merchant-site.com or merchant-site.com/yourID

The only way we could keep the link cloaked even on the merchant's side is if we used "frames" but those:

1) are prohibited by Clickbank

2) Internet Explorer is notorious for not letting some cookies pass through framed (so you could lose your commissions).

Hope this helps!
