Redirects will hide an ugly affiliate link. The method of creating an affiliate link varies depending upon the website platform you are using. If you are using a WordPress platform check out this link: http://www.affilorama.com/site-building ... -redirects
There are advantages to using a redirect versus using the actual affiliate link. By having a redirect in place you can easily change the affiliate address if the chosen merchant changes their links in any way. A redirect appears neater along with minimizes potential commission theft.
Using X-Site Pro the procedure to create a redirect is different from the above reference example. You create the redirect in the "OTHER" section of X-Site Pro titled "Redirect Pages". Your affiliate link is entered on this redirect page. Set the time delay to "0". In this manner the blank page should never be seen. The information on your affiliate merchant link should be stored in the "Affiliate Wizard" section of X-Site Pro.
You may use any call to action verbage such as "Click Here" or "For Further Information". Whatever call to action you use is acceptable. You should test out the different call to action statements to determine which is the most effective on your website.
