I got this new Link Train from Courtney Tuttle. You had better get on quick, because this one is likely to fill up fast!
———Copy and paste the VIRAL-ICONS and instructions below this line———
Important Update – Please read here!
1.) Copy and paste the matrix of “Viral Icons” below courtesy of Ilker Yoldas from The Thinking Blog. (to support Ilker’s quest of launching his own Internet Startup with a student budget, please consider subscribing to the Full RSS Feed and enjoy interesting posts in the meantime. “Knowledge grows when shared!”).
2.) Upload your non-animated favicon (GIF image of size 16Ã—16 pixels) to ImageShack, a similar free image hosting server or to your own server provided by your hosting service if you have one.
3.) 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=”Your URL Here”><img alt=”Your Keywords Here” src=”your favicon direct link here”/></a>
4.) 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.
5.) Invite your readers to do the same and soon this can grow virally.
Optional: Display the “Viral Icons” badge on your sidebar and promote your blog. As more and more bloggers copy and paste the “Viral Icons” from the matrix above, the more backlinks you will have with your ALT text, and in turn the more promotion your blog with get. The sooner you participate, the more link love you will receive!
