LInk Cloaking Help
I asked this on another forum but have got no responses yet, so I am going to ask here.
I have my own web hosting and domain service, but I am having trouble doing php redirect...
I don't want to use free services like urlfreeze or tinyurl... I have plans for the website and such but for some reason I cannot seem to cloak my link right. I have researched google like crazy, watched videos on youtube, and I still am doing something wrong.
I can't tell if its a setting I need to change in my cpanel or if its something I am doing wrong.
I will let you all know what I am doing exactly.
Ok so on my desktop I made a folder and named it "recommends" I opened up notepad and copied:
Of course I changed the link to the clickbank hoplink...
I save it as the name of what I was promoting so "profitlance.php" I saved it in the recommends folder.
Then I accessed my website through core ftp and uploaded my reccomend folder to my "Public_html" folder I go to update it then type in my website/recommends/profitlance.php and nothing loads...
I don't know what I am doing wrong, I am really confused.
All I want to do is set up my link cloaking so it doesn't show my affiliate id in the web browser bar, I want it to look professional/nice.
Can someone please help me? I really am lost as to what it is I am doing wrong :/
Any help/advice would be appreciated greatly! Thanks!
