Like a good vacation, this series has come to an end.
This last post will tell you how to make those new advertisements look good from the start to the finish. In this post, we will find out two little tweaks that we can do to our advertisements to add that extra touch. Specifically, we will learn how to:
- Remove the blue picture borders and
- Add “ALT” tags to help your advertisers with S.E.O.
- Open The Links In New Tabs, So visitors don’t leave your website
Blue Borders – Be Gone!
To remove the blue picture borders, you must see where you have your picture url and add a border=”0″ property to it. Thus making the browser realize that it doesn’t have to have a hyperlinked border, and removes it entirely. As an example, I will use one of my advertisers codes to show you:
<img src=”http://bradblogging.com/wp-content/…/125×125-b.gif” border=”0″ />
The URL is where my picture is located, and right after it is where I would insert the border property, creating the obvious change. Here is the same pictures, one with the border property above, and the other without it (Screenshoted Earlier)…
Show Your Advertisers You Care, Add an ALT Tag.
The second thing to make an advertiser happy is to add “ALT” tags to increase their S.E.O. ranking. To do this simple step, just go to where you will link to the advertisers website and add alt=”Whatever their tagline or website motto is”.. Again I will use an advertisers example to do this:
<a href=”http://www.submit2please.com/” alt=”Manual directory submission service” >
The A href is a link, obviously. The alt will help the googlebot associate those keywords with the website that you are linking to.
Don’t Lose That Visitor, Open In Another Tab!
Finally, to make the interested person not leave your website and let them visit an advertiser, simply add a target=”_blank” after the ALT tag. Example:
<a href=”http://www.submit2please.com/” alt=”Manual directory submission service” target=”_blank” >
So hopefully after reading this series, you have learned a little (or a ton) more than you knew about advertising at the start. Perhaps now you will be able to sell those spots better/faster than you could before. If you missed the entire series, simply keep scrolling down, to read it in reverse order!!
What should our next series be about?? Remember, at BradBlogging(dot)com, we cover everything blogging. Simple as that.
