What are the best WordPress plugins to manage and promote your affiliate links?

WordPress Plugins for Affiliate Marketing

A good list of WordPress plugins for affiliate marketing can be hard to find so I scoured WordPress to find the most popular plugins available.

The list is in alphabetical order and includes active installs and ratings. Also, all of the plugins have been updated within the last 9 months and most very recently. I chose to only include plugins with 1,000+ installs with a free version available to be uploaded via the WordPress Dashboard.

Please backup your website before installing new plugins. Test plugins on a test site first if you have one available.

You might also consider installing the plugin WP Rollback. Active Installs: 8,000+; Rating 5 out of 5 stars.

Quickly and easily rollback any theme or plugin from to any previous (or newer) version without any of the manual fuss. Works just like the plugin updater, except you’re rolling back (or forward) to a specific version.

Here are 13 free WordPress plugins for affiliate marketing. Many have upgrades and paid options for additional features.
