One of the most common questions for those getting started selling products on ClickBank is “How do I put a ClickBank HopLink on my website?”
The HopLink URL will appear in the first field. The second field will contain the HTML code for embedding the HopLink.
Copy either the HopLink URL from the first field or the HopLink HTML code from the second field.
To determine which code you need depends on how you want to use the link and what kind of website you have. Read ways to use a HopLink and website types below:
Ways to link a ClickBank HopLink:
- Text link
Text links are probably the most common way to use a HopLink on a webpage. The link can be a single word or phrase, or an entire sentence or headline. Here are some examples:

Blogger website users can add a HopLink by highlighting the text or image you want to hyperlink and click the Link icon. Then paste in the HopLink URL and click OK.
- Self hosted website
If you host your own website there are multiple ways to add a HopLink. You may want to copy the HopLink’s HTML code if you are directly editing the website page’s source code. Or you can copy the HopLink URL and use it inside your own HTML code link.
Posting HopLinks through social media such as Facebook and Twitter may require the use of a URL shortener, such as TinyURL. (WARNING: Do not use Bit.Ly or Google URL Shortener, as currently those services block ClickBank HopLinks.) Simply copy the HopLink into the url shortening service and create the shortened link. Then copy the link to post into a Facebook or Twitter post.
