    Default How do you make tracking links?

    Hi guys.

    Probably a dumb question, but when you're wanting to make a link for a bookmaker in order to track your commission earnings, how do you do it?

    eg... covers.com/go/betonline or espn.com/visit/pinnacle

    Any help much appreciated!

    It seems there are no dumb questions. And I'm a bit confused. I had a look on your site bettingboss.com - 2 questions on this.

    #1 You send your traffic (if any) directly to the bookmaker's homepage. No tracking/affiliate link. You'll earn nothing in that way, you just give away your users for free. For any reason?
    #2 Do you know what affiliate marketing is? Do you have an account with eg. bettingpartners or commissionkings?

    If not, you've missed a crucial part of our business. Once signed up, you will find tracking links for each brand you want to promote. (eg. //record.bettingpartners.com/_D4-7ye2fyMfQ55Ctjy-6emNd7ZgqdRLk/1/)

    To keep it easy ... If you have such a tracker you can use a WP plugin like Pretty Links to build a link like mentioned (eg. bettingboss.com/go/bovada)
    Now you can link your Bovada "Bet now" button to this URL and click will be redirected to the desired bookie with your affiliate info attached.

    Hi.

    Yes, I'm with commissionkings - but unsure on how to add links.

    Yes, currently sending people with no affiliate links, but those will be added when I know how to

    Thanks very much, but I seemingly can't find the tracking links - but I can find the image tracking links.

    If you in your account, go to "Marketing".

    You'll find: "Direct Links".

    Great jumping in to help eenzoo,

    Rather then confuse in any way, if you have further questions, ask away.

    Thanks for that!

    Is there a way to check that these links associate with my website? Or the fact that they're on my website is enough for comissionkings to track them?

    If you generate the link in your account and you'll use it in that way, they will know where the traffic comes from

    Pretty Links works for Wordpress only.
    Is there a tool which works for other pages too? Pretty Links is like Cloaking, right? For SEO it's better to use Cloaking because Google thinks that you are using an internal link, am I right?

    Use a wordpress plugin like Pretty Links to create your own trackers. You can also add a nofollow option if you do not want your affiliate links to pass on any SEO value to the operator you are promoting.
