How to use Affiliate Links Correctly?

As soon as you have your exclusive affiliate link, you are practically all set to sprinkle it evenly throughout your content.

However, before you go ahead pasting links all over the place, better learn the best practices by heart. Here are some tips for you to optimize your own affiliate website and reap some SEO benefits from the affiliate links.

Add Anchors to Affiliate Links

Put affiliate links in the body of the article by making certain words or phrases clickable. Such a hyperlink would look much better than a bare link added to a page:
Try Hybrid

Which link looks better to you?

The contextual anchor is much more appealing — it’s clear, user-friendly and looks nice, in contrast to the bare link.

Make the anchor text of your affiliate link descriptive and relevant to the linked source, ex: "Try Hybrid", "Sign up with Unlocator", "Get anonymous IP with Unlocator". Your users should instantly understand where they will go once they click through.

Add Affiliate Links in WordPress

In WordPress, adding affiliate links is quite easy. Just log in, add a new post, and click on the “Insert link” button in WordPress editor.

Then, add your affiliate link and specify what description to use as the clickable text. You can also just match the part of your copy before you click on ‘insert link’ and then this part will become your anchor by default.

Once you do your edits, decide whether you want the affiliate link to open in a new tab or in the same tab. Remember that if you set it to open in the same tab, a user will leave your site. Therefore, I would suggest you always set the links to open in a new tab to avoid breaking up the session.

Add Affiliate Links to Clickable Images

Once you log in go into your WordPress panel, create a new post and click on Add Media button in the editor.

Once you add your graphic, click on it and open the image editor.

Next, change the display settings, so the visual leads to a custom URL instead of leading to a media file.

Finally, update the settings and preview your draft to see if your image leads to the right landing page, product page or any other preferred destination.

Add Affiliate Links Youtube videos

YouTube affiliate marketing is the process of creating videos and placing affiliate links in the actual videos (via annotations) or in video descriptions.

Here’s an example of a link in the video description:

And here’s one in an annotation (sometimes called an overlay):

Try not to center the overlay in the middle of your visual content so do not confuse or repel your viewers

Whatever methods you use, the objective is the same: redirect traffic to an affiliate landing page.

Affiliate Link with Custom Landing Page

Affiliate Landing Pages found in your affiliate section, allows you to assign any page or post to yourself as an affiliate.

Once you are assigned with a custom landing page, you can then promote the landing page’s URL without needing to use your affiliate link.
