How to Optimize Links Using the FPTraffic Link Mask Tool

Have you tried sharing affiliate offers on your Page? Is Facebook blocking your affiliate links?

Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to generate revenue from your Facebook Page, but Facebook may catch the affiliate link and block your post from being seen. If you want to promote an affiliate offer on your Facebook Page, you need to mask the link first.

To mask an affiliate link means to hide it with a redirect. For example: redirects you to a PeerFly referral link:

This allows you to give users a link with your own domain in it when promoting an affiliate offer.
Masking links is great for promoting affiliate links because it hides from Facebook the fact that it’s an affiliate link.

FPTraffic offers an easy way for you to mask your affiliate links and avoid having them blocked by Facebook. Here’s how you can use our simple Link Mask tool and start monetizing your Page with affiliate offers.

Increase Engagement and Revenue with Link Masks

The Link Masking tool can help you increase engagement on your Facebook Page and increase the revenue you generate.

One proven way to use this tool for audience engagement is to create a custom image for your link with a play button. The example below is a screenshot from a YouTube video. You can add a play button to any link, but your bounce rate will likely be pretty high if you don’t actually have a video.

    1. It depends on the offer link. I recommend setting up a custom tracking domain on PeerFly and then using our Mask tool.

  1. I signed up for the free trail, but found the who thing confusing. So never bothered. Try putting some video Instructions, or if you have them..Put in links !!! Maybe this way you will retain and convert trail users
