I personally cloak all of my affiliate links. I do not have any evidence to indicate there is an actual benefit to cloaking the links. In reality, the value of cloaking may just be restricted to those niches where your visitors are internet computer savvy.
To cloak a link you are creating a page whereby the page when opening automatically directs the visitor to your affiliates website. I do not know of any cloaking specific programs. Any program that creates a page will do it.
When someone clicks an affiliate link instead of a link showing with all the information of the affiliate including your clickbank identification a neater link transfer shows a link that only indicates the click has generated a new recommends page.
Mark Ling has demonstrated how to create a cloak page in the Blog Bootcamp lessons. I believe that lesson can be found on the second week of the instruction videos.
