My affiliate sales were getting stolen by link hijackers!

A couple weeks ago I noticed I was suddenly making a lot less sales than I was used too. Now I wasn’t quite sure what was causing this – especially since this is normally one of the best times of my year for selling. I went ahead and remade my opt-in pages and rewrote my entire sales funnel and split tested. The results? Absolutely no difference, it was converting at under 5%… that’s atrocious!

After spending some time talking to others and trying to get to the bottom of this I realized why I wasn’t making sales – or rather, why I wasn’t getting credit for the sales that I actually WAS making. Apparently there is a new problem called link hijacking that is becoming more and more prevalent with affiliate marketing. Basically this means that no matter how good my sales funnel was, or how many people it convinced to buy a product, I wouldn’t get any sales.

I guess I should quickly explain how link hijacking works. There are two different ways with the second being more common and more easily avoidable – if you know how.

The first way is that when you direct someone to a product, they change the affiliate ID to their own to credit themselves with the sell. This is hard to stop because they know what they’re doing and are most likely an affiliate themselves. This is just something you have to get used to, but this shouldn’t affected your sales nearly as much as the next way.


The other thing that can cause you to not get credit for a sale is spyware. More notably a new type of spyware that is now invading the internet that will automatically change affiliate ID’s to those of the spyware’s creators. That means that the more work you put into making sells, the more sells you are making – for the creator of that spyware!

One way to mostly fix the first problem and completely fix the second problem is through the process of link cloaking. This means that you hide the url to the website with your own redirect cloak so that spyware can’t change the affiliate ID and users can’t find it to change it themselves.

You may have heard of services such as TinyURL or Bit.LY, these are great services for shortening URLs, but they shouldn’t be used for link cloaking because they often break affiliate cookies (which means you won’t get credit for sales). Instead you should find one of the link cloaks available specifically for affiliate marketing.

I recommend you download this report, ‘Cloak & Dagger Affiliate Secrets’. It covers link cloaking, how to do it, and the best services for affiliate marketing. If you’re sick of missing out on sales that you should be making, or you just don’t want it to happen to you, you should at least read through this report. I’m offering it to you for FREE – so there’s no risk at all.

Ah-ha! I’ve finally discovered why I wasn’t making any sells with affiliate marketing!

That’s right, I spend a lot of time making perfect sales funnels that entice visitors to opt-in and eventually get sold to products. Unfortunately my sales recently plummeted and I was barely making a fraction of what I was used to. I was asking around and it turns out that this is actually a pretty common problem and that most people really have no idea what they’re doing wrong.

The truth? They aren’t doing anything wrong!

There’s actually a quite possibly MORE disturbing thing happening. A large percentage of computers now have some sort of spyware on them and more recently there are spyware programs that will change affiliate links on the host’s computer from your affiliate ID to the spyware creator’s. That means you’re doing all of the work and they’re STEALING your sales!

If you’re making less sales that you expect to – or more than you normally make – it is very possible that this is your problem. With your current links there is absolutely nothing you can do to stop this problem either. The solution?


Normally people run off to a URL shortening service or something and get a different URL so it can’t be edited, but I would NOT recommend that you do that. More than likely you’ll pick one of the many services that will break affiliate cookies and you won’t get the sell anyways. More recently though there have been a few link cloaking services that are directly related to affiliate marketing – these are the ones that you want.

The best ones of these will be hosted on your own site and allow you to change the links, etc. You probably shouldn’t try and make your own redirect script (unless you’re a programmer) – you might end up not having affiliate cookies still.  Check It Out Here-

I asked around for a program that can do just this and was instead redirected to a report about link cloaking. It’s over 15 pages of information about link cloaking and why you need to do it. If you’re serious about getting the sales that you deserve and stopping thieves in their track, I recommend you download it as well.

The report is titled ‘Cloak & Dagger Affiliate Secrets’ and you can find it right here. This will take you through the reasons to use link cloaking, as well as the different ways that people can hijack links.

It recommends ‘Phantom Link Cloaker’ (PLC) which is a great cloaking service that runs on your website. Recently ‘PLC’ was upgraded to version two and a ton of new features were added. You can find ‘Phantom Link Cloaker’ here if you have already read the report or are already convinced to look into a link cloaking service.  GO HERE NOW–=
