SFMF PRO | BetterLinks and/or AWeber are Saying My Bluehost Affiliate Link Is Broken. What do I do?
Inside AWeber when entering your Bluehost affiliate link into your email follow-up; you may see this error message:
Also inside the BetterLinks wordpress plugin on your website, you may also notice this "Broken Link" error:
Do not worry there is an explanation for it.
When you create your Bluehost affiliate link inside the impact network; your link will look something like this or similar:

Therefore; the link above with the long string of characters is your actual affiliate link; which means the system is recognizing this link:
