Cloak Links, Track Links & Create Link Pages

Pasting affiliate links straight into your content is not a good idea for a number of reasons. With ClickWhale you can easily manage, organize, update and track your links. Let me take you through why it’ll be a good investment for your website…

Why you shouldn’t use raw affiliate links

There are several reasons why copying and pasting affiliate links into your content isn’t great.

Reasons like:

  • They look messy
  • They’re hard to remember
  • You can’t track the clicks in your website
  • You can’t update them easily

That’s where a link management plugin comes in as it provides a solution to all these problems.

I’ve used plugins like PrettyLinks and Lasso before and they are both really good, however they are quite expensive.

Introducing ClickWhale

I was recently introduced to ClickWhale, and I’ve been really impressed with it as it’s far cheaper than those two while still providing excellent functionality.
