How to create simple redirect links for your WordPress Blog and eBook


I have had some questions and emails about how to create a simple redirect link for a blog or to include within your eBook …

I know that some of my readers/subscribers are following Dean at his blog and unfortunately still experiencing problems …

This got me thinking, how many other people are needing help, but are struggling on…..?

I would suggest to those that are having problems, the best thing to do if you can’t fix it, is to ask for help or advice, while I myself also struggle to do this at times, I have found with experience that it is best just to ask for help and advice …..

Why? …..

because before you know it you may have spent a few hours trying to fix or follow steps to complete a task, each time you fail, getting slowly disheartened and before you know it you are powering down your computer.

What had started as a positive day, with your to-do list at the ready and goals to hand, you will have written off your day no further forward…

while if you ask for help wether it be at a blog like mine, send an email or post a question on a forum …

Now, you might say “but how long before I get an answer?” …….

it may not be immediate, however think about the other tasks you could be working on while waiting for the answer …..

do you see where i am going here …. 1, 2, 3 ?

you get the solution to the task you were having some problem ( for some this will be the video below and before you know it you have a handful of tasks completed 😉 )

Now, I do not want this to seem as a sermon, but just to try and help my readers/subscribers to get into the ‘mindset’ of seeking help if they need it ….

In a way if you do you are ‘outsourcing’ to a degree … well enough of my chat as requested here is the video tutorial that will show how to create a simple redirect link for your Blog or eBook 😉

**Please accept my apologises as I am still suffering from a cold, so would suggest you do not have your headset set at full volume 😉 I do *cough* twice, I did however promise a couple of readers I would complete this tutorial today, to help them complete this task … so bear with me 😉 **

Here is the .php code as shown in the video above, just copy and paste into notepad ….

?php $URL=”enter your web address link here”;
header (“Location: $URL”);

Please add < and also ..... > at begining an end of code as shown in video 😉

Here is the redirect link created in the video:

    Hi Tommy,

    I find your information particularly helpful and straight-forward.

    Just refresh my memory here… didn’t you just miss out on the Alex Jeffreys coaching? If that is the case then I want you to know that I am a very strong advocate for you and I wish you were part of the team. If you are part of the team then please disregard that last comment. It’s been a BIG long day and I am running on almost empty.

  5. Hello All,

    Thanks for comments and feedback …..

    @ Gary – I did miss out mate, as I am recently married and unfortunately could not stretch to it at this time, bit disappointed but felt that it should not stop me helping those that need it 😉

    Sorry you aren’t part of the group. Hopefully we’ll be able to spread the word in the group for you. Your information is very helpful…thanks.

    I just posted at my blog a technique I used several years ago and want to figure out some way of applying it to internet marketing. Any ideas from you would be appreciated.
