How to Hide Referral Linksby Faizah Imani
When you sign up to become an online advertising affiliate, you are assigned a referral link to place on your website. If one of your website visitors click on the referral link or make a purchase, you are paid a percentage of the sales profit. In some cases a website visitor may deliberately delete your referral code from the web address bar before visiting another website. As a result, you don't receive credit for making the referral. To resolve this problem, you can hide the referral link by camouflaging it as a new URL.
Write down or copy the website address for the referral link.
Visit a website that allows you to shorten or camouflage website links. Examples of sites you can use are such as TinyURL, Bitly and Short URL.
Type or paste the referral link into the URL box. Click the designated button to generate a new URL.
Log into your website "Control Panel." Click the "File Directory" link to view page files.
Select "Edit" for the page the contains the referral link. An HTML editor box will open.
Look through the HTML code inside of the HTML editor box to locate the referral link. Replace the referral link with the new URL.
Click "Save" to save the changes to your page.
