    Lightbulb Cloaking Affiliate Links In Bulk?
    Hello, i would like to know if there is a way to cloak thousands of affiliate links in bulk? This is when i want to import datafeed with thousands of products to blog/website.

    Cloaking 1 by 1 will take weeks if not months. I need either tool or Wordpress plugin (preferred) that will allow me to do so.

    Not a blog plug-in but .htaccess URL rewrite can do that for you.

    You could have the links go through a redirect script that includes some kind of product id number from the feed or one you generate using info from the feed. Have the info stored in a database and have the redirect look up the actual link in the database before sending the customer along.

    You can run a search either here or on the G, here's one recent thread where it is described:

    How you use it depends on how you are using datafeeds.

    Use a url redirect library that works with a database and write your own script to create your own links with that library, use those links instead of the default.

    I posted the following on some other thread, another library is http://code.google.com/p/urltea/:
    I use the lilURL php script - lilURL - A Free/Open Source Clone of TinyURL.

    I have a public jump page that doesn't allow posting to - I've removed the forum and the new url creating script leaving just the redirect logic. Then I have a second copy of the script in a protected directory that I use to post the new urls's to and get the jump script url back. Obviously both point to the same database and table. This setup could be used for manual link building or for programmatic access using any simple http library that can access your protected directory.
