/* Redirect browser */
header(“Location: http://YourAffilliateLinkHere.com/”);

Next, create a new folder in your domain root directory or if you use Hostgator You create a new folder with the keyword you are targeting in your public_html folder on your hosting account.

Upload the index.php file to that directory. In naming the directory use a keyword related to the product you are redirecting to.

Upload your “index.php” file into the folder you just created.
