Last time, I had told you about the Viralink - by Andy. I got many backlinks and I am pretty hopeful that it will also help me to increase my PR. But this time, Dummies Guide to Blogger beta has came with yet another interesting idea - Viral Icons. Toy can too take a part in this project, just simply copy and paste the code below.
——Copy and paste the VIRAL-ICONS and instructions below this line——
1.) Copy and paste the matrix of “Viral Icons” below courtesy of Ilker Yoldas from The Thinking Blog. TIP : Easy way to do this : When viewing this page in browser go to View----->Page Source (CTRL+U) in Firefox and View------>Source in Internet Explorer. This page source will open in a Notepad file. Just copy all between the lines "———Copy and paste the VIRAL-ICONS and instructions below/above this line———".
Then paste it in Edit Html tab of post editor when creating your post.
2)Make a favicon for your blog.
3.) Upload your non-animated favicon (GIF image of size 16x16 pixels) to any free hosting service, Googlepages or to your own server provided by your hosting service if you have one. Then copy down it's link : LINK OF YOUR FAVICON.
4.) Substitute the Host Icon and one of the “Viral Icons” in the matrix with your ALT text of choice and your blog’s URL. Maximum of 3 specific keywords for the ALT text are best for it to be effective.
Here is an example:
<a href="LINK OF YOUR BLOG"><img alt="YOUR KEYWORDS HERE" src="LINK OF YOUR FAVICON" /></a>
Replace the CAPS in the above code with actual values.
5.) When you get a ping back from someone that has your icon in one of their “Viral Icons”, practice good karma by copying his/her Host Icon’s code (automatically the associated ALT tag will also be copied) and paste it over one of your “Viral Icons” below.
6.) Invite your readers to do the same and soon this can grow virally.
Important: After you add these favicons then leave your post url in comments, then I will add your favicon and the associated code you designate as “Host Icon” here, replacing one of the “Viral Icons” from the matrix above. Feel free to drop a comment here with your blog URL, ALT tags and favicon URL (we don't mind if it is the same all over the blogosphere).
