How To Create Clean Links On Your Blog Domain

Last Updated on June 1, 2016  


This is Day 16 of the 30 Days, 30 Killer WordPress Plug-ins Series.

There are a number of good uses for a good link redirection plug-in, such as:

  1. Turn your affiliate links into cleaner links that can actually be remembered, or typed into emails without looking long and nasty.
  2. Track your links, so you can see how many click-throughs you’re getting.
  3. Create short links which are easier to spread via word of mouth (such as on a podcast).

If you’re looking for a way to create nice, clean link redirects from your WordPress blog, look no further than Pretty Link.


In the past, I have recommended MaxBlogPress Ninja affiliate in order to do this. That plug-in is still workable, however I no longer recommend it to my readers for the following reasons:

  1. It isn’t easy to keep up to date because it isn’t part of the plug-in repository and they don’t have auto-updates enabled.
  2. It seems to conflict with other plug-ins from time to time. Most relevant to me is that it conflicts with the Magic Action Box plug-in. The WYSIWYG editors on that plug-in fail to work whenever Ninja Affiliate is enabled.
  3. Other options exist which don’t cost anything, and I’m not going to recommend a paid plug-in if I don’t have to.

Pretty Link Lite is what I recommend for most of my readers now. It will allow you to set up nice clean redirect links and it does a very fine job of it.


Now, the “Lite” label obviously lends itself to the fact that there is another version – and there is. There is a paid “Pro” version. I don’t use it personally, but it does look pretty nice if you need the additional features. Click here for a feature comparison between the free and paid versions.
