SkimLinks converts regular texts and links into affiliate links.
Additional Technical Information:
SkimLinks adds an event listener to the links to make it appear like you will go straight to bestbuy.com. It actually swaps the link when you click on it, making you first go through
http://go.redirectingat.com/?id=33330X9 ... 4812&pref=
before redirecting you to the actual page at
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Attach%26%2 ... ifications
Regarding both SkimLinks and SkimWords, it looks for the user that he/she is clicking on a direct link. It is not obvious that the user is taken through a third-party domain to end-up at the desired webpage.
