9 ways to hide affiliate links

These codes are useful for hiding the affiliate links. However, please read the affiliate program terms of service, so that you won’t go against it.

For all except the last way (.htaccess redirect), create the respective file for each affiliate link with the code for the chosen redirect style. Replace ‘http://your-affiliate-link-goes-here’ with the URL of the affiliate link.

For example, if you choose to use the PHP redirect, first create a PHP file. Copy and paste the PHP redirect code into that file. Replace ‘http://your-affiliate-link-goes-here’ with the affiliate link URL.

Every time you want to link to the affiliate link, just link to that file.

You have to create new file for each affiliate link.
