    Link Shrinking?
    I know I am a noob, and this may be a stupid question, but I did search for an answer before asking, I promise.

    Is it necessary to shrink affiliate links every time you place them on your site so that people can't see your affiliate code? Or is it enough to just use <a href="mysite.com/affiliatelink">link description</a>

    Thank you in advance for any help

    Say G

    This is called Cloaking Your Links or Link Cloaking. No it is not necessary/ required but I think if you know how to do it, it's a great idea.

    Hope this helps.
