How to Add a Banner

Sign in to your Blogger.com account and from the admin menu click on “Customize”. This brings you to the Edit Layout page.

Click on “Add a Gadget” where you would like to add the banner

Select the “HTML/JavaScript” gadget by clicking on the plus icon (+). This brings up the “Configure HTML/JavaScript” window.

Login to your HotRussianBrides.com account and go to Referral Program screen. This section can be accessed from the My Account menu.

Copy the banner code you want to use (we have 5 different banner sizes to fit any blog layout). Don’t close this window, as you will need to come back to the Referral Program section in the next section of the tutorial.

Paste the code into the “Configure HTML/JavaScript” window. Make the title of “Banner” or whatever else you want.

Click “Save”. Now, view your blog and check your work.


How to Add a Text Link

Go back to the Edit Layout page by clicking on “Customize” and click the “Add a Gadget” link again. This time you are adding a “Link List” gadget. This brings up the “Configure Link List” window.

From your HotRussianBrides.com Referral Program page, copy the Unique Member Link. Do not change any part of the link or your referrals will not be counted.

Paste the link into the “Configure Link List” window into the “New Site URL” field. In the “New Site Name” add a descriptive name for the links, like “Join HotRussianBrides.com”, “Date Russian Brides” or “Meet Russian Women”. This is the text that will display on your blog.

Click “Save”. Now, view your blog and check your work.

No Blog, It’s OK! Share on Social Networking Sites or Email

If you do not have a blog or Website, you can still share your Unique Member Link via your Facebook, Twitter or MySpace profiles. Also, you can send the link via email or instant message to anyone who wants to try the Website.

Now go out there, promote your link and earn free credits!
