    This addon, once installed and configured, will replace any URL you want on a page with your own affiliate-based URL. This affiliate can be a simple tag added o the URL, or a complete URL rewrite if you'd like.

    Visitors to your site will click on links in messages and automagically use your affiliate link to the target. This can monetize your site quickly based on your traffic and the content that is created on your site.

    Example
    The Comprehensive URL Parser is installed on this site, I have it configured to change all links to ebay and amazon sites to my corresponding affiliate-tagged URL's.

    This is an normal ebay link to a product:
    Code:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Uglydoll-Little-pretty-Ugly-TUTULU-7-Blue-Plush-Toy-Doll-2010-monster-dog-like-/232099792349?hash=item360a39c5dd:g:J3AAAOSwxg5X1wVG
    
    That link is entered here in the message:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Uglydoll-Li...792349?hash=item360a39c5dd:g:J3AAAOSwxg5X1wVG

    If you look at the link address looking at the page, or at the address bar below, you'll see that the name of the link takes you to the correct URL, but the link itself is an eBay roverized, monetized, affiliated, referral, deep link, (whatever you want to call it), URL.

    The same add-on works in a simpler way for Amazon affiliates.

    Here is a normal link to an Amazon product that one of your site's users might post a link to:
    Code:
    http://www.amazon.com/Road-Cormac-McCarthy-ebook/dp/B000OI0G1Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1414621963&sr=8-1&keywords=the+road
    This is the monetized version, notice the addition of the "tag" parameter.
    http://www.amazon.com/Road-Cormac-McCarthy-ebook/dp/B000OI0G1Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1414621963&sr=8-1&keywords=the road

    But THAT'S NOT ALL. This add-on will work with practically any referral or affiliate program you belong to, just set up your affiliate program URL's and info in the option settings, and sit back
    If you're interested in this addon, or would like to know how your affiliate program would work with it, please post a question here about it, or send me a question via the contact page below. Unlimited* affiliate programs are supported

    *Unlmited meaning, as long as your site doesn't lag down processing links :)
