What you Need to Know
The only thing you need to be able to do is set up your web
editing software so that it shows you both your web page as
it actually appears PLUS the underlying HTML code.
All of the major web editing tools -- including FrontPage,
DreamWeaver and GoLive -- have the ability to do this with
just the click of a button. Consult your program's online
help if you're not sure.
Before you start, you need to decide where on your site you
want to place your text link. Make sure it's somewhere where
it will get noticed quickly.
When you pick the page, open it in your web editing
software. You're now ready to insert a text link.
Step One: Copy the code for the text link you want
Once you've decided where you
want to place your text link, you:
Go to the text link you want on the ChineseFoodDIY affiliate center
Highlight the text in the text area. (To highlight: click
the mouse button in the text area. Select Edit > Select
All from your web browser's main menu. The text in the
text area will be highlighted.)
Select Edit > Copy from your web browser's main
menu. The code for the text link is
copied to your clipboard.
Step Two: Prepare your web site to paste the code
With the code for the text link copied to your clipboard,
Return to the web page you've already opened in your web
editing software, and place your cursor in the body of the
web page where you want the text link to go.
Set your web editor to view the source (HTML) code. Your
cursor automatically appears in the same place in the HTML
code as it does in the actual web page. This is where
you'll paste the new code for your text link.
Step Three: Paste the code for the text link into
your web site
With your web page ready for
pasting the code, you:
Click the spot in your HTML code where your cursor is
sitting. The code window becomes active, and ready for you
to paste the new code.
Select Edit > Paste from the menu in your
web software. The text link is automatically pasted in to
your web site code.
Step Four: Replace the "xxxxxx" with your affiliate
nickname (ClickBank nickname) in:
Save the change, and upload the new page to your server.
Your text link is now ready!
forget -- your affiliate id is automatically added
to your text link after you
replace the "xxxxxx" with your affiliate nickname (ClickBank
