I wanted to put together a short tutorial for any of you that have questions regarding linking back to a link party. It’s really super easy, and I hope adding the screenshots help. This is done in Word Press, so I’m not sure what the method would be in Blogger, Weebly, or other platforms, but hopefully if you’re on a different platform our layouts are similar enough you can still find this useful.
There are 2 common ways to link back to link parties you attend. One way is to add a button. The other way is to link back with a simple text. I’ll show you how to do both methods in Word Press.
Linking Back Using a Button
Most link parties have a button that you can “grab” to link back with. To add this button simply copy the code provided under the button and paste it onto your site. In my opinion, the easiest way to do this is to paste the code into a text/html widget, which is the way I will describe and illustrate.
Simply copy the code under the link party button.
Then in your Word Press Dashboard go to Appearance–then Widgets.
When you are in the widgets portion scroll down and select the Text widget, and click Add Widget.
Next paste the link party button code into this new Text widget, and save it. When you view the front end of your blog, you should see a new party button on your sidebar.
That is one way you can link back to a link party using the button method. The party button can be put different places on your blog, the widget is just a quick and easy way to add it. Party buttons can also be placed on a page and added to your menu, or at the bottom of your posts.
Text Link Backs
The second way to link back and my preferred method is to link back with a simple hyperlink text. The hyperlink texts can either be placed at the bottom of each post, or placed on a separate page and added to your blog menu.
To follow this method, simply type out the link party name or hostess’ blog title. Highlight the name or title, and then click on the hyperlink icon.
Then paste the url in the box and apply.
That is how you add a text link back. All the link parties you attend can be listed at the bottom of each post or on a separate page and added to your menu, that’s entirely up to you.
I hope you found this helpful! Please let me know if this isn’t clear or if you have any other questions, I would be glad to answer them. Thanks so much!!
