Adding Flashing Links To Your Blog

First you will need to add some script to your blog, with that done you add a tag to links you want to flash.

Step 1. Use the Add To Blogger button to add the script to your blog.

Simply click the button below, select the blog you want it on then click add widget :

This adds the script in a gadget on your sidebar, you can move the gadget to the bottom of your layout.

Add Flashing Links

OK, when you add a link to your blog you use code like this :

<a href=””>Spice Up Your Blog</a>

To make the link flash you add the following tags :

<a rel=”flashfg[green]” href=””>Spice Up Your Blog</a>

This is flashfg which translates to flash foreground.

<a rel=”flashbg[yellow]” href=””>Spice Up Your Blog</a>

This is flashbg which translates to flash background.

Note – You can change the color values from Green and Yellow to any color you choose.

    Blog commenting may be the one of the way for link building and its a new technique also but if you will get so many things like link building, entertainment and earning money and so may things all together from a single website then why to go for other options
