It was quite shocking for us to discover that all cloakers we tested actually broke mobile sites.
A serious bug in the code means that when a responsive site is opened through a cloaked link... The page breaks & is no longer responsive.
The visitor would see a broken page, they have to have to scroll & zoom all over the place just to see the content... This ruins user the experience & many visitors simply leave.
In fact 60% of visitors use mobile devices nowadays to browse internet ... so that's a huge amount of potential traffic completely wasted.
Even if you are a diligent marketer & have cloaked your links using a competitors product ...you
may be shocked to find many of the links you post .. cant be opened...
And... some cloaked links can't even be shared!
So by just posting a link ... there is no guarantee that it will work... There's a good chance that the link will still be scanned devalued & blocked further down the line & worst part is you wouldn't even know about it.
We found that many link cloakers use weak redirect modes instead of cloaking... this is the primary reason for link blocking and link failure.
It's marketing suicide to email RAW affiliate links... as these are almost guaranteed to land you in
Using RAW affiliate links is also the easiest way to lose commissions through affiliate ID switching as the affiliate ID is wide open for all to see.
Bad link text & using domains linked to volume mail are a sure fire way to get your sites & offers devalued & even blocked...
It's vital to make your links look natural & pointing to your own trusted domains.
Now more than ever before Social Sites Like Facebook, Google+ Instagram & Twitter are monitoring
& auto blocking links... This could happen to anyone & for any reason...
Sometimes the links are blocked for no reason at all & with little chance of appeal.
Email Service Service Providers like Yahoo & Gmail which carry 65%+ of all email traffic now scan links & devalue any emails that have URLS from domains associated with bulk mailing... all such mail ends up in spam.
And of course it's no secret that Google hates affiliate sites which is why most affiliate sites never rank in high search engines.
Affiliate sites are simply being ignored...
In 2015 we discovered through server logs that on every new product sold up to 30% of sales came from
"non-affiliate" transactions & affiliate "theft"...
Which means... affiliates were losing commissions. We found that many visitors switched browsers mid session & simply copied the de-cloaked link from one browser to another. This meant no cookie was placed & the affiliate lost the sale.
We found that if the RAW decloaked link was ever visible then the affiliate would lose sales - especially if there was a good reason for the visitor to switch ...like if the page loaded slowly.
It's a well known fact that visitors click less on links that look like garbage, that are unfamiliar or
blatantly look like affiliate links. This is known as "link trust".
Many cloakers & link shortening services both paid & free create ugly looking links that point to unknown sites. With the amount of identity theft & hacking nowadays visitors are more suspicious than ever.
If the link looks weird or the link text doesn't make any sense you are wasting traffic in the worst possible way & at huge cost.
While building WP Link Shield we found that some of the competitors link cloakers were so badly
written... they were in fact dangerous.
Simply enabling these plugins was enough for us to break into a site & take full control.
Hackers can cause you a whole world of problems & lost rankings to your domain being blocked - this can lead to serious downtime & in some cases $1,000's to put right.
Every top marketer knows that using RAW links puts you at a significant disadvantage as links are being
scrutinised & penalised based on algorythms...
All It takes is 1 bad word on the page or 1 link on page pointing to the wrong place & boom you're blocked, you link instantly devalued & you are losing money fast.
