GooglePages are FUN! You have one yet?

12 07 2007

Here is the “about” page for Google Pages

Google page basically allows you to make a couple of webpages for yourself.  You do have some access to the html, so you can dress them up a bit!  One requirement is to get the gmail (basically google’s email program) in order to do this.  I personally didn’t think it was all that big of deal!  You can still use your own email and passcode to sign into your google account.  My sign in name is the one I choose for gmail so don’t let it take you back when you see it after you sign in!  It wont’ show your email name that you opened your google account with anymore.

The more items you use OFF this program the more webspace you can use!  For example, I still use photobucket for my images.  My account as of now still has tons of space left!  The help section seems to be pretty active, and if you do a search for what you are looking for chances are you will find it!

I was reading the help section, and I came upon a poster that had his own googlepage with tips!  I went there and did some fast reading.  I learned that you can use templates from other places, and NOT use the ones avaiable!  That is all fine and great except you have to break the template UP and place in the separate sections of their TEMPLATE!  I found that out the hard way!  When you start playing around with it you see the button to edit the html, and so of course I did!  I erased all the html that was there, and then copied my template html that I worked on instead.  What I didn’t realize is that I placed my entire template within the header portion of the page, and it looked AWFUL!  You have to break up your template into the separate sections. 

The preview section isn’t all that helpful!  I found you must view it live in order to get a good feel for what it will look like live!  YES you can play around with it without it being LIVE on the internet, and if you decide to take it down off the internet it gives you that option also!

My page is still a work in progress!  Here is is!

Engraver For You

Now you can’t add meta tags or keywords into your html from what I have read.  You must make sure your page is keyword rich, and do this naturally!  Then make sure you get some of those one way links to drive up the page rank of your site!

Helpful tip page from another google page member

What I would LIKE to do is use this page for an entrance into my ecrater store!  I placed a note on my google page noting that if they click the ‘baseball’ button for example it will take them to the baseball trophy section of my store!  I will be adding additional sports trophies, and pages with time.   Remember to use your anchor text along with other items!

7. Sign up for a “My Yahoo” at http://my.yahoo.com/ and attach your blog to your own “My Yahoo” account. This will get your blog included in Yahoo very quickly. This is worth the effort to stop what you’re doing right and do it, since Yahoo has a PR 9.

8. Use this code: “http://add.my.yahoo.com/content?url= http://www.yourblog.com/urblog.xml” in your blog to allow others to put your feed on their own “My Yahoo” account.

15. Locate blogs with a lot of traffic and place useful comments in their comment box. Be sure the blog and your comments are relavent to both your blog and theirs. Senseless posts won’t help you, they’ll hurt you.

16. Once you get around 5 to 10 posts on your blog, start a PR campaign and announce it to all relevant channels.

17. Make a blog post as often as possible. More than once a day is not really necessary. Remember, if you can’t write that much, go to step # 14.

Placing your own images on Squidoo

4 06 2007

There is an option to upload on squidoo, but you have more control over your images when you use a little html.

 

Is the code for today!  I can’t seem to be able to figure HOW to post code on wordpress so you may have to type this out manually! 

Anyway, the first thing you need is a place to host your pictures for you to use on squidoo!  I personally have been using www.photobucket.com  for years!  Once you place your images on your photobucket account (or whom every you use to host your images) we can go on to the next step!

these are your options with photobucket, and for this example we are going to use the top choice or URL link!  Replace the website information that is given in the code I showed on top with this code that you grabbed from your photobucket account.  Right now you are READY!  You have now written for your html coded picture ready to use on squidoo!

The code above allows you to hyperlink your picture directly to the site it refers to!

If you click on the above picture it will take you directly to my squidoo page for the hat shaped name badges!  The above code will allow you to do the same things with your items!   As you may have figured out already, the top set of quotes is for the website you want them to go to, and the second set of quotes is the photobucket URL link for your picture!  Pretty cool huh?

I’m going to show another picture with directions this time, because I can’t figure out HOW to do this in wordpress!  Just I just grabbed a screen shot with directions!  This is how you wrap text around your picture in squidoo!





Guaranteed Linkbacks – Here is HOW!

25 05 2007

As we have spoken about before linkbacks can help you in your quest for search engine rankings, technorati, and also traffic to your site!

Courtneytuttle.com  has a neat list on his site called, “D-list“.  This list is some blogs that have added some special HTML that states their blog will follow you automatically when you leave a comment on their blog – or linkback to you.  If you use this service – or actually major favor – they don’t want some crazy comments, spam, etc.  I would assume just like any other blog they will delete the comment!  They are truly looking for GOOD comments to keep the dialog going!  Just like you would wish for your own site!

Right now the site has a list of over 170 blogs to choosee from.  If you read a couple that seriously don’t do anything for you don’t worry about it!  The list has quite a selection to choose from!  Not only do you get a cool linkback, but you might learn something.  You might even find a site that keeps your interest so you keep coming back, and find new friends!

Pretty cool huh?
