WordPress Pretty Link Lite Plugin

One of the most amazing plugin of WordPress world I am going to introduce you today is “Pretty Link Plugin”. Even the developer has given it the name that itself is describing its functionality. It basically helps to cloak the companies and market associated links and to track the right path by giving shortcut links. The actual URL of link is replaced by another link which gives an effective look that visitors find it as an important corner. For example, usually company’s and other marketing website’s links might not be enough fascinating or friendly to make the users more interested to probe in. Are you also one of them? Hold down! Here is the solution that pretty link’s going to provide you that would enable you to modify the look in a way you have desired of. 

Yet, one of the drawbacks that have been highlighted by many users is that pretty link’s expiry period is very short, even after few months it gets expired. However its main functionality of capping many marketing links usually diminishes such minor drawbacks. Users have to achieve it for their work purpose even if they have to bother after every month.

Benefits of Pretty Link Plugin:

Being a practical user of Pretty plugin on my site, I would like to recommend all the affiliate/associate market link holders to start learning and exploiting this plugin.

The pretty link that actually cloaks the original affiliated link (apparently) gives a beautified view that the viewers start showing interest to go through it. 

I was even able to create groups for my links that supported me to organize my links in more proficient way.

Steps for how to install pretty link plugin:

To exploit pretty link, there are some very simple steps as under.

Suppose your affiliate link is http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com?a_aid=c351c439, If this link is converted to pretty link i.e http://howtocreateonlinewealth.com/Wealthy-Affiliate through pretty link plug in then isn’t it looking more professional and more vibrant to fascinate the viewers? Offcourse it is giving an aesthetic sense. People are now more oriented towards your link, just try it once!


  • Keep the redirection type as 307 (Temporary).
  • Insert your (affiliate link) in the “Target URL Field”
  • create any name to beautify your target URL and write it down in the Pretty Link field.
  • There is no need to write any thing in title blank.

You can also create groups of links. Simply create a new group and give a name whatever you want. Uncheck the parameter forwarding and check SEO options and track hits on this link. Then click on “create”, a new pretty link is created infront of you.


In this way you can create new affiliated links, link tracking and groups. With a little more search, you can come to know how this link tracking works.
