Do I need to clear my WordPress cache?

You probably have encountered caching problems if you publish Amazon Affiliate content.

Caching issues usually pop up when publishing a new article or making changes to one.

The most common caching issue for my Amazon Affiliate sites is not seeing the changes I made to a post after publishing.

You can see the changes you made while logged into your WordPress website. Then, when you view the article in incognito or another browser, you can’t see the changes.

Then I remember I need to clear the cache. It gets me every single time.

You may need to clear your cache after running Linkmoney App

Linkmoney App automatically fixes (makes changes to) your Amazon Affiliate links. These changes may not show up on your live article due to the site needing to be cached.

How to clear your WordPress Cache

There is more than one way to clear your cache. I’m going to talk about the different ways I can think of from the sites I run.

Hopefully, if the way your site caches is not listed here, there is enough information to figure it out.

 


WP Rocket

Clearing your cache with WP Rocket is super straight forward. I use this plugin on all my sites.
