    Does cleaning up links really make a difference?
    Hey all,

    I'm wondering if cleaning up affiliate links really makes a big difference. Lots of people say yes but usually they are selling a program to clean up the links so its bias.. can someone speak from experience?

    Did anyone notice a drastic increase in sales once they cleaned up their links?

    can you clarify "cleaning up"? are you talking about link cloaking? A little more info might help you get a better response to your question.

    Not sure I understand the question. Do you mean you have a site with dated affiliate links and you are wondering if you should bother to delete them?

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

    There have been many discussions here at ABW regarding cloaking links, a search might turn up the answer you're looking for or give you enough viewpoints to help you decide.
