Introducing The YouTube Link Optimizer


If you’re a creator on YouTube looking to make some extra income, you’re probably already using affiliate links to recommend products you use or review. (And if you’re not, you
should be!) However, these links can start to stack up quickly, and before long you may end up with hundreds or thousands of links throughout your channel, all while still leaving valuable international commissions on the table.
