I logged into my LinkTrackr account this morning (like I do every morning) and noticed some dramatic changes. These new changes makes LinkTrackr one of the best URL and affiliate tracking tools on the Net.
For those who don’t know, LinkTrackr is a what I use to cloak my affiliate links. There are some very good reasons why you should always hide your affiliate links behind a service like LinkTrackr. They include:
- Protect your affiliate commissions, especially ClickBank commissions
- Project a more professional approach, like all serious affiliates do
- Get better search engine rankings by hiding affiliate links from Google
Not only does LinkTrackr allow me to cloak my links behind my own custom short JCLink.me URL, it offers an awesome set of tracking tool so I can see how those links are performing. With the upgrade to 2.0, LinkTrackr just became a must have tool for all affiliate marketers and bloggers.
Split Test Multiple URLs with One Link
By far the most exciting feature of the new LinkTrackr is its ability to divide the traffic from one short URL into multiply landing pages. Let’s say your designer created three landing pages but you don’t know which one performs best. With LinkTrackr 2.0, you can upload all three landing pages and divide up the traffic to them anyway you want.
In addition to the split testing, LinkTrackr 2.0 offers conversion tracking as well. This will automatically calculate your ROI and show you the best performing landing pages or offers. This takes the guess-work out of the campaign. You will instantly know what is working and what isn’t.
Test Out LinkTrackr for Free
LinkTrackr offers multiple plans. They range from free to the $27 per month Xtreme plan. The free plan allows you to create ten tracking links using the default LinkTrackr URL. If you want your own custom URL, you’ll have to upgrade to one of the paid plans. However, the free plan is a good way to test out the service. You can use the free plan for one full year.
The basic paid LinkTrackr plan costs $9 per month and allows 100 tracking links and up to 10,000 clicks per month. That should be good enough to get started with, but you can also try the Pro or Xtreme plans if you already have many affiliate links to cloak and track. You can upgrade or downgrade your account at any time, so you can always start small and upgrade as needed.
To try LinkTrackr, simply go and create your free account. If you’re signing up for any of the paid plans, then be sure to use the coupon code JOHNCHOW to get 20% off.
