One of my favorite features of the Prosperent Wordpress Suite is the Auto Linker. If you have ever tried to monetize a Wordpress blog with affiliate links, you are going to LOVE this. There are two main ways to use it.
1) Setup common phrases that you use in your blog. These phrases, wherever they appear on your site will automatically link to products from our merchants. Let's see an actual example. Just navigate to the Prosperent Settings after installing the plugin. Scroll down and you will see the Auto Linker settings:
As you can see in the image, we can add a phrase, but we can also map that phrase to a more specific product. Say for example we want to link the word shoe to a specific Nike running shoe every time it appears on our blog. Simply type:
Now, every instance of the word "shoes" on your blog is hyperlinked to a "Nike Running Shoes" product search results page. Easy huh?
shoes => Nike Running Shoes
Let's look at the other way to use the Auto Linker. What if you are creating a new blog post and you mention a product. Now, the old way of doing things would have you heading over to your affiliate network of choice, digging around their interface to find a merchant that carries that product, applying to that merchant, waiting for a response with fingers crossed, then finally digging through the interface again in the hopes that you can find a decent affiliate link to that product.
That's the old way... Welcome to Prosperent! All you have to do is highlight the product in your post and hit our Auto Link button in the WYSIWYG editor. We pop up a screen so you can narrow down the product to an exact brand and merchant, determine if you want clicks on the link to go to the merchant directly, or to a search result page, and hit submit. Whew, that was painless!
What does all of this look like to your visitors? They see an ordinary link in your posts like this:
When you click the link, you are either sent straight to the merchants site, or to your built in search page (which is also part of our plugin suite):
If that isn't easy, I don't know what is!
