Text Link Ads now using TinyURL

Make Money Online | August 23rd, 2007 | 4 Comments

Whats trendy today is not trendy tomorrow they say, same has happened with Text Link Ads the leader of the text link sales marketplace.

After a long run of affiliate marketers to encode and hide those boring affiliate referral links Text Link Ads stepped in action in benefit of their users. Text Link Ads Inc. now uses TinyURL to shorten the affiliate URL for their users and protect them. With TinyURL the affiliate URL gets shorter…but yet, how much will this help affiliate sales to increase since many webmasters consider those kind of hidden URLs pretty much as spam URLs (especially the ones used with TinyURL).

Both affiliate URL and the starter promotional affiliate ($100 in FREE text links) URL have been changed, so if you still use the old URLs it is time to change them. Especially those who make money online with affiliates through Text Link Ads.

Heck, and just today i thought about masking my affiliate referral URLs through .htaccess rewrite rule. Anyway it is still making things easier for me now, instead of changing the URL all over my blog, i just need to change the URL on my .htaccess once and continue to make money online with Text Link Ads affiliate referral.

Sharing is caring!

    I’ve been using a redirection system. For example, the link http://www.memoriasfracas.com/shop/harrypotter goes to a price comparison site which uses really big URLs. The problem is that the system of this site seems not to count redirectioned links.

  2. Hello Thassius, good to see a new reader on my blog. I am aware about some affiliate system that will not count those kind of links. But apparently Text Link Ads will count them, since they intentionally started using the tinyurl service and emailed me the new affiliate referral URL.

  4. A better way to use affiliate links is to hide them behind a link that looks like a page part of your site.
    There are several methods to do that using redirects from php, html meta or javascript but I have written a wordpress plugin that combined them and let’s you manage them from a nice web interface inside wordpress admin without having to write any code.
    The plugin is relesed under GPL license so everybody is free to use it, modify it or distribute it. you can read more about it here:
