WP Linkshield found that EVERY single link cloaker tested broke responsive sites. Considering that 60% of us use mobile devices nowadays .That’s a HUGE problem and a huge amount of profit lost.
If you’re not cloaking links you are not safe either , you are leaving up to 30% of sales on the table through, affiliate theft, browser switching and social blocking. WHAT IS THIS BUG EXACTLY? Before I explain that I need to explain cloaking modes…
There are 2 main cloaking modes –
1 REDIRECT CLOAKING – this is most common type – you get a new URL and it redirects to the original URL – problem here is… this doesn’t hide your affiliate ID and you lose money if the user switches browsers or shares the raw link
2 IFRAME CLOAKING – with this method the URL never changes and the destination page is loaded in an IFRAME so your affiliate ID is never exposed and you don’t lose money through browser switching…
Iframing is great for affiliates as you can overlay messages, you can kick exit pops – it gives you a lot more control and reduced commission losses.However the vendors of cloaking tools have never looked at what happens when users open responsive sites in iframe mode – the answer is RESPONSIVE SITES BREAK! This boils down to BAD CODING …
