Has the latest WordPress update broken your affiliate links?
My plugin instantly fixes EVERY affiliate link on your website.
The latest WordPress update has seriously affected affiliate sites as a whole, by adding two new tags to any links that you have on the page with the target=”_blank” attribute set.
These tags kill affiliate links by not sending the referrer in the HTTP headers. This means that if you’re an affiliate for a company that tracks using this method, the referral trail will be lost & you will not get paid for sending the traffic.
You will, and already have lost money.
What can I do about it now?
You’re in luck.
I was quick in discovering the issue, and was able to build a plugin which resolves the affiliate link issue right away.
All you have to do is download, and upload it on to the affected WordPress site.
Once you’ve downloaded the .zip file included in the download (you can click on any download button, fill out your information and get taken to the download page), you’ll have to do the following:
- Visit your /wp-admin page (www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin).
- Navigate to Plugins > Add New and click on the Upload Plugin button at the top of the page.
- Click on Choose File and select the .zip file, then click Install Now
- All done!
