FAQ

Can I track affiliate links in Google Analytics?

We recommend using the free Google Analytics by Yoast plugin for this. You’ll have to enable “Track outbound click and downloads” on its settings page and set the slug you’re using for your affiliate links in the advanced “Set path for internal links to track as outbound links” setting as well.

created a link, and when I click on it, a 404 page opens on my site

Using 2.6.7 as 3.0.0 is bit too big of a version jump for me (will wait for 3.0.1 just in case), but never had any issues. However, I wish there was a premium version where it would spoof / trick adblockers as some of OUT links do not open with adblock on when that site is being blocked. Just opens new tab for a second and auto closes on all browsers.

After testing 10 plugins and several very expensive ones, I concluded that Easy Affiliate Links is amazing plugin. I am very detailed person and indeed marketing data-geek (worked on WV Group ML tools). The only one that gives all potions for creating links in free version available here. Even several paid plugins could not match it and they charge a lot. This made me think I should share my review even that I don't do it often. Thanks guys and I am looking forward to your new features. If you need beta tester, let me know. Cheers
