LINK CLOAKING AND LINK TRACKING EXPLAINED – http://linktrackingcloaking.weebly.com
Link Tracking and Link Cloaking are very similar but a little different. It is possible to perform link tracking separate from link cloaking but many link tracking solutions also perform link cloaking and vice versa.
LINK TRACKING is the use of a solution (software or hosted) of keeping accurate track of everything about links such as:
How many people are clicking on a link.
Where they are clicking on the link from (geography + IP address)
Other link tracking details depending on the solution you use.
LINK CLOAKING is the use of a solution (software or hosted) so the text of your link (where the link appears to go) is different from where the link actually goes to. Link Cloaking is usually desired by affiliate marketers because:
Affiliate links look like affiliate links which tend to look ugly, long, hard to remember and suspicious.
