How to Make a Hyperlink Signature: Guest Sue Travers

       You can find Sue Travers at Traverslife among other sites.  Today's guest article is a reprint which offers a how-to explanation on leaving a link to your blog in the signature you leave on comments.  Here Sue explains why it's a good idea to do this and how you go about creating the link.



Hyperlink signature for the A-Z Blogging Challenge


Non technical, non threatening instructions for making a hyperlink signature!

Why do you want a hyperlink signature?
• You've signed up for the A-Z April Blogging Challenge
• You plan to comment on other bloggers posts in a caring and sharing way after The Challenge has finished
• You hope the person for whom you crafted a kindly word, will come tovisit your blog in return
• You want to make it easy to visit your blog. You don't want them to have go to your profile page, scroll down, find you have 3 or even 8 blogs, and wonder which one to look at first
• Sadly, people give up in frustration if it's not easy to work out which is the relevant blog
• The nifty signature will take them to the specific blog (or post) you'd like them to visit. Easy!

How to do it:
The letters and symbols below are what the computer needs to navigate to your blog or post, (and you wouldn't believe how hard it was to find a blog title that hadn't been taken!) I've colour coded it for ease, normally it's all in black, and appears more or less in one line. It's only broken up like this because I put it on a powerpoint slide so you can see it. (Otherwise it goes straight into a hyperlink signature which wouldn't help you at all.)
All you do is copy those letters and symbols out - the whole lot up there, exactly the same (but of course with your personal, relevant information) - including the space after the a - into a Word document or equivalent. Don't add anything else. Save it where you can refer to it easily.

Next. Where it's red is where you put your blog address (what you originally called your blog - if you can't remember click on the title of your blog and check in the address bar at the top of your page.) But of course you do it in black, not red.

Now choose your signature. Are you going to use your real name, the name of your blog, a nom de plume or what? Type that in where I've used blue. That will become your hyperlink or 'clicky' signature, and is what I should see in the comments section when you copy/paste from your saved word document.

That's all! It should work.

Please, please, please, feel free to give it a go here. I was nervous the first time I tried it in public, thinking I'd stuff it up (which I did about 4 million times before I got it right). I won't be critical if you get it wrong...honest! Please ask for help if you get stuck.

  1. Man! That's how you do it! I honestly have been wondering how some people make it look so easy. Thanks for sharing this. It makes life a whole lot easier! You rock Sue!

  2. Thanks for this!

    Not for the html instruction though, but for the tacit lesson on protocol.

    I had read on Some Respected Blogging Site TM that a link back to your on blog in comments was tacky. Though I do do it sometimes and I have seen others do it.

    This way we have all have an agreement that it is ok to do it. Plus I want to see the blogs of people coming to my site. If you found my post interesting/funny/good chances are I will find yours good too!

  3. Easy to follow advice there, thanks :)

    I've always been in 2 minds about hyperlinked signatures, but the way you've put them as being useful for the A-Z challenge sounds like a good idea. I think I'll put one on mine :)

  4. Great, simple instructions, well done!

    For those who don't like signature links, there is another option. Navigate to your blogger profile, click edit profile, and then click "Select blogs to display" near the top, in Privacy settings.

    Personally, I display only my personal blog, because I'm part of several group blogs, and I use other ways to link to and promote them, and I want people who don't know me to be able to find my blog easily.

    Trying again.

  10. And no, it didn't work for me. I have a self-hosted Wordpress blog. Does that make a difference? I'll try again. If this one doesn't work, I'll wait for assistance.

  11. This will be my final comment, I promise!

    For those with your own domain name, you must add the http://www portion of your url.

    So you need to do

  12. Like Beth above, I have a self-hosted blog so I don't think it's a good idea to try... though I'd LOVE to do so... *le sigh*
    Countdown continues... 44 days left!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Please delete my previous comment. I tried to write out the instructions, and it tried to transform it into a link.

    If you have your own domain name, add the http://www before the domain name or it won't work.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Beth-- Your second try worked.

    Honestly I don't understand why some folks have an aversion to providing a link to ones blog when commenting. I've heard some of the arguments, but I think those are generally based on misinformation or just plain selfishness. If anyone knows a strong logical reason not to use the hyperlink in a signature please let us hear the argument.

    To me having the link to the blog of the person leaving the comment is a real time-saver. Saving time is vital when you're trying to make it through many blogs.

    I think I feel another post coming on. Be watching on Tossing It Out in the near future.

  15. Mish-- Why? You are one of the main examples of the type of blogger who I wish would leave a hyperlink. Let me explain. I typically respond to my comments from my email notifications and yours and others like yours do not link anywhere from the name. Therefore, I have to take an extra step to go back into the comment section to access your blog. You should be able to easily leave your link like anyone else. If your signature with link also has the name of the blog it also distinguishes which Mish you are (there are more than one)--there are other names that have even more owners attached to them. It's easier to pinpoint a blog name than it is a person's name that might be the same as others. At least consider it--I think it could increase the amount of visitors you receive.

  16. Arlee, you are on to something. Too many blogs do not allow me to put in my self published blog address in any other way! so maybe instead of fighting, I should just do this:

  18. Thank you! I've been wondering how people do it (hyperlinks people, hyperlinks).
    I'm going to try it below. As for why it is beneficial to use one.
    SEO - Search Engine Optimization! If you want your blog noticed, be on top of google pages and draw visitors, links are one of the ways to do that.

    Ok, here comes mine *crossing fingers*:

    Marta Szemik

    ReplyDelete
  19. Marta -- Yours worked great. Your point about SEO points to an abuse of hyperlink use which is an argument some bloggers use against it. I find the argument to be invalid in my experience since my blogger spam filter is pretty good about separating the good from the bad.

  20. So, Arlee, next question, someone very nice just responded to my comment here by commenting on my blog. What is the best way to respond to them? I clicked on the hyperlink I guess I'll show it here:

    http://tosssingitout.blogspot.com

    which was an unresolved URL.. Now I see, there's a typo. But is the best thing to do; go to their blog and then continue the conversation, or continue the conversation on your own blog???

    thanks

  21. Some great advice, I have been using this for sometime... its cool to use it.

  22. Mimi -- the link that you refer to that was left on your site is my main blog. Not sure why it showed as unresolved as it worked for me. The conversation should continue wherever you think is most appropriate. In the case here I would continue the conversation on this blog since the topic thread might be followed by someone else and could be helpful to them. This can vary depending on the case. It could even go to private email if it wasn't something the parties wanted to share.

    There are different camps on this and your opinion is best if that's what suits you. I'm offering the way I see it.

  23. When Lee stressed the use of hyperlink signatures last year, I started using them more often in my comments and now feel incomplete without them. Sometimes in the early days, I would forget to add one and now it's like second nature...unless I encounter technical issues when commenting on some blogs and in those few cases, I just skip it altogether and leave the name or URL.

    Signatures are great to use and does make it easier to visit blogs during the A to Z challenge....I find signature links more useful on Blogger blogs than most other blog platforms.

    Blogs that are hosted on Wordpress or some other platform usually have a field for website URLs so I just leave the link to my blog that way, rather than adding a signature, because it's just as easy for the blogger or other readers to click my name/blog site on those types of blogs, as it is to click the link in the signature.

    Great tutorial on comment signatures!

  24. Arlee, it didn't work because "tossing" had 3 s's in it.

    I am referring to the link that you filled in using the form on my website. So if you go back to my website and click on your name (the second comment) you will see what I am talking about. (I corrected the first one)
    But you did answer MY QUESTION!! thanks. Makes good sense to me.

    Mimi Torchia Boothby Watercolors

    ps and if you're planning on doing a lot of blog visiting, it might be a good idea to save that link in notepad so you don't have to keep typing it all the time because we all make mistakes!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I was also wondering about using the link in your comments. I have a professional teacher blog and some of those bloggers get downright mad if you leave your blog link for your signature.

    I personally love clicking over to see the blog of the person who commented, but have refrained after seeing others eaten alive for it. =)

    Can't wait to visit all the challenge blogs in April!

    I've seen this happen with other blogs - so ..... WHY?!

    Cheers Hilary

  33. Wow - what great advice you have all given! I'm going to try and leave a hyperlink signature here - after reading the comments and thinking of my own experiences with both leaving comments and responding to them, I think the hyperlink is EXTREMELY helpful/convenient. Anyway, thanks again and here goes....

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hi Sue!
    This post is one of the best tutorials I've seen for a long time. Your instructions are SO clear and so logical. You've obviously now seen how many people have already benefitted from this!
    When I was learning how to leave a linked signature, I private emailed a blogger who used to leave a hyperlink in her wake wherever she went. I found it useful, because she was a very funny commenter, and invariably I wanted to read more of her. She was just a click away! She taught me how to do it, but it took seriously like TEN emails back and forth because she didn't think about using a powerpoint slide, so she'd tell me things like, "But take out the flagnog because you need to replace those with wingwangs..." or some such other foreign language. I finally did understand what she was saying, and from then on I've left my comment signature as a link.
    I have heard a lot of the pros and cons of linking. Some instruct their commenters that if they DON'T leave a link, they'll get no return comment. Some say just the opposite. I don't think this is the only issue that polarizes bloggers, but probably one of the big ones.
    Here's how I see it. We all want comments. We want reassurance that SOMEONE is reading and thinks enough of what you posted to say SOMETHING. I decided right away as a new blogger that I'd ALWAYS comment if I'd been somewhere to visit. It's hard sometimes, because we do run into posts that don't make sense, or aren't interesting, and it's hard to find something positive to say. (I only make constructive critique type comments to bloggers I have that sort of relationship with. With new blogs, I always look for something nice to say, even if it's just, as another blogger and I call it, "The "I have a dog, too!" comment.
    For a challenge the size of this one, I think it's almost a necessity to leave a link. Like Lee said, it's a lot of steps to find people sometimes, and time is going to become an even more precious commodity very soon...
    I do have to share the one exception to what I just said. I don't think much of those who ONLY leave a link. We've all seen them. The comment is so generic there is NO way of telling whether they even read your post. I call those the grubbers. They want people to visit them and comment, but aren't willing to do more than leave their address.
    The idea MimiTabby had about having it handy to cut and paste is spot on. I keep mine in a note that lives on my desk top within easy reach.
    Great job, Sue. Now off to visit you at YOUR house. Thanks for guesting at ours.

  43. Interesting and fruitful discussion generated by this post, Sue. Until someone can show me a good reason for not leaving a link in your signature I'll keep doing it and encouraging others to do the same. "Tacky" is not a good reason and I'd have to ask "Why?" and "By whose standards?"

    For me saving time is not tacky.

    Also, like mentioned above, I keep a word document open with various signatures that I can quickly copy and paste as needed. Best way to go.

  47. Okay, my IQ has sunk to a new low, but I still cannot figure out how to get my signature to link to my blog. I have gone to my profile page and added the hyperlink with and without spaces (thank you, Lisa) to the signature line but all that does is eliminate my pic and still directs the reader to the profile page, not to the blog posts page.
    Am I a lost cause or is there a simple solution?
    Thank you.

    Because I am not sure just how much I could write until I run out of A’s (as I did) and as for Z well Zorro’s ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ zonked is about as much as I can think of

    and the html cannot be accepted came up. That reminds me of trying to get into a posh restaurant while being rather shabby looking

  65. Hello everyone, this is going to take a smidge more time than I initially anticipated - Please feel free to email me at suetravers01atgmaildotcom if you're stuck so we can walk through it more easily.

    @Tina - I had to laugh - all those whatisits and flagnogs and wingwangs - it's so familiar and bewildering! I also dislike the generic non-comment, but unfortunately sometimes run dry and can't think of anything remotely helpful to add, so I sometimes wander off without saying anything, but I will make more of an effort after reading your comment.

    @Ebby Sigmund, the hyperlink text you've made goes into the comment box, I usually leave a gap then insert it.

    @Susanne Drazic - I'm not sure if you can change the colour when it's on someone else's blog - I think it's got something to do with their colour settings.

    So, I think Hilary and Rob Z Tobor are still stumped - I'll get back to you!

  94. Just commenting to see if my link works. I understand some people may not like a signature link on the comments, but for the purposes of the Challenge it makes sense.

  102. Blech, it didn't work! I had to take out the http:, but now the link will be broken! I'm still not understanding why I'm getting this new error. The code works on other sites in other comments, but there are a few where it doesn't work. I still don't get it. :(
