Simple Affiliate Link Checker


Picture this: you have your affiliate website up and running, traffic is on track and increasing, and your content is hitting the target… but then you check your affiliate account balance and nothing seems to change…

We’ve all been there. Broken links can cost you thousands of dollars in revenue! **

Thankfully, Simple Affiliate Link Checker will alert you every time you have a dead affiliate link, so you don’t need to check it yourself while you’re losing time and money!

The plugin will check your links on a regular basis and alert you if there’s any problem with them.

I tried it because someone from an affiliate forum recommended it. Now i use it everytime I start a new affiliate website because it’s easy to install and it has the slack integration (that we use on our team). I recommend it

Solid choice if your just starting in the niche. It says gambling on the title, but it can be used for any affiliate website
