When I first started my blog, I really struggled trying to figure out how to make a button, or clickable image, for it.
So I thought that might make a good tutorial here.
First, you’re going to want to find your image. Either make one following this tutorial or find an image that you’d like to use.
Next, upload that image to your media file in your blog.
Then copy the url of that image.
Use this code:
<a href=”URL YOU WANT TO LINK TO HERE” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”><img src=”URL OF IMAGE HERE” /></a>
The target=”_blank” tells it to open in a new window and the rel=”nofollow” tells the Google bots not to follow that link (important esp if you’re using it to link to an affiliate site).
Finally, you just paste the entire thing into a new text box in your widget area…if you want it in your sidebar….OR into the text editor of your post.
