Link Cloaking And Link Tracking - Are They The Same? By Christopher Stigson

? Link cloaking and link tracking are often confused with each other. Though both are useful tools to maximize your profits from affiliate marketing, yet they are two entirely different things. Link Tracking Link tracking, as the name suggests, is mainly about tracking the activity of the user who clicks on the link. That is the reason why it is sometimes also referred to as ad tracking. The link tracking script or software program allows you to track whether the user clicking on the link is making the purchase or not. The advanced programs will also let you know complete detail about that user, such as the IP address, the geographical location, and other such things. This type of information will assist you in improving your strategies to increase your profits. Link Cloaking Affiliate link cloaking also helps to maximize your earning, but in a different way. It is in fact more about protecting your earning than increasing the same. As the term suggests, it is a process to cloak the link so that the users do not realize that they are actually clicking on an affiliate link. If the link is not cloaked, a user can easily recognize that it is an affiliate link. When they click on the link, they can see in the address bar that they have been redirected to a different website. What is more, if the user has a little of technical know-how, he/she can also go to the source code and see your affiliate links. Nobody can ever resist the temptation to earn easy money online, especially when the opportunity is right there. For example, if you are a Clickbank affiliate and the user is also an affiliate from the same network, he/she will simply replace your affiliate ID with his/her own ID. When they make the purchase this way, the commission goes into their account rather than yours. This is more technically and commonly referred to as link hijacking. You can protect your income by choosing to clock your affiliate links. When a link is cloaked thoroughly, it can never be hijacked. However, it entirely depends upon which type of link cloaking technique you are using. If you are trying to save some bucks by using the free scripts, you are probably still at risk. If you are serious about your affiliate marketing venture, you should always use a

What Is Link Cloaking - And Why Should I Care? By Jay Jennings

During a teleseminar about link cloaking and ad tracking, Cloak and Tracker creator Jay Jennings was asked the following question: "I'm trying to build my internet marketing business and I'd like to know what cloaking and tracking is used for? How difficult is it to implement?" Cloaking and tracking are two different things, but there are some software applications out there which can do both, so I usually lump the two together. But let's look at each one separately, first: Cloaking: This is used mainly by people who are promoting products as an affiliate. As you know, to earn a commission by selling an affiliate product, the person who buys must click through using your affiliate link. The problem with that, is there are some people who, for one reason or another, don't want you to get a commission. And so when they see an affiliate link, they will either strip your affiliate ID from the link, or even worse, replace your affiliate ID with theirs' -- so when they click through and buy, you don't make a commission. One solution that's proven to increase the amount of commissions you make, is to cloak your link -basically, you make the link look like a "normal" link and not like an affiliate link. The person sees a link that looks very innocent, and when they click it they are automatically redirected using your affiliate link. So the link looks normal, but behind the scenes it switches out for your affiliate ID. Tracking: Okay, so you can make an affiliate link look like a normal link, but what about tracking? In general, the more details you know about your online business, the better off you are. For example, if you buy pay-per-click advertising, and you also write articles to generate traffic, how will you know which one is a better use of your time and money if you don't track the results? Or, let's say you spend time in several online forums participating and answering questions and use the sig line in your message to drive traffic to your site. If one forum sent you 10 times as much traffic as another one, wouldn't you want to know that? If you don't know which one is better, you run the risk of sending time doing something that doesn't give you the best return on your investment -- whether your investment is time or money. The nice thing about some cloaking software is that the same thing that cloaks your links can also be used to track the clicks on your links -- make sure you find software that will do both. Cloaking and tracking can mean more profits for your online business, but how difficult is it to implement? There are some ways of cloaking where being a "tech-head" is really handy, but most methods don't require any specialized knowledge. You should be comfortable signing up for someone's affiliate program, copy and pasting your affiliate links, and stuff like that. You'll also need to know the username and password to your web site so your software can upload the files, but that's all information you have to know anyway, just to put up your web pages.
