    Great video and very helpful.

    I have one question. Normally Google wants those Affiliate Links to have the "NoFollow" attribute attached. (if you're worried about getting your site ranked high in Google) Is there a way to make all Affiliate Links, or all External Links have the "NoFollow" attribute?

    You could use the Pretty Links plugin. It's a free plugin that allows you to make external links No Follow. The free version of the plugin is called, "Pretty Link Lite". I've not yet tested it with WooCommerce External Products but it's worth a shot.

    Im using Hestia Theme in Word Press with the Woocommerce Plugin.

    I need to add affiliate links to the "add to cart" button for products that are variations (using a drop down menu). The only solution I have found causes the variations to ALL be displayed at once instead of using the normal drop down menu.

    Seems like it should be an easy solution to replace the "cart destination" with an affiliate link (maybe added as a meta tag in Attributes). Not sure exactly. I cant be the first one to have this issue. Any ideas?

    Thanks Mike
