⭐️ The most flexible link manager

  • Easily create and manage links – Create your links to track and organize them into categories.
  • Apply SEO settings to links – Flag your links with SEO attributes like “no follow” or “sponsored”.
  • Place and share links – Place your created links anywhere in your website content or share them on social media.

All of these key features are available in this free version of ClickWhale. That’s some crazy value!

🔥 Link Pages: Update & share your content on Social Media

Moreover, we are the best plugin to create your own link page on your WordPress site.

  • Easily add and manage links – Add previously created links to your link pages. Or add custom links, pages, posts and much more. Change their order via drag & drop or customize link titles.
  • Manage contents – Enter your link page title and description texts. Upload your brand or website logo.
  • Customize appearance – Set the background color for your link page, as well as the font colors of the texts. Don’t forget to adjust the button colors as well!
  • You choose the URL – Determine the URL under which the link page is accessible on your website, and you are ready to go.
  • Optimize your link page for SEO – Enter SEO and Open Graph metadata and test how they look right after via a preview link!

Here you can find a live example of our own link page, created with ClickWhale, of course!

🕵 Tracking Codes: Manage tracking codes and scripts directly in the ClickWhale interface

ClickWhale also offers you the possibility to embed any tracking codes or code snippets directly on your website without having to intervene in the code of your website.

  • Place all the codes and snippets you need! – For example: Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel, Google Conversion Tracking – simply all the codes you need!
  • Output the code snippet only where you want it to go – Determine whether the code should apply to the entire website or all pages or posts, or only to specific content such as individual posts, categories and so on.
  • Exclude User Roles – The code snippet should not be executed for certain user roles of your website? No problem! Set that yourself!

From now on, you don’t need a third-party service, you save on monthly subscriptions and have full control. All this, on your own domain. Brilliant, isn’t it?
