How to create "Grab This" Linkback button

Thinking how to make a “Link back to us” or “Grab this” button whereby the code for the button appears in a text box below it for readers to copy and paste it into their blog? It’s easy, you can do it in just two steps. Here’s how:

1.Make a button : Make a button, badge, banner or whatever. Make it eye-catching and inviting. The goal is to get people to click the button. You can make it on your own using Gimp or Photoshop or you can use online button makers/generators. Some of the sites that offer the service are CoolTextGRSites and AdamKalsey. There is also list of button makers by Mashable.

2.Display the button and code in your sidebar

  1. Login to your Blogger account.
  2. Go to Layout>Page Elements.
  3. Click Add A Gadget.
  4. In Add A Gadget window, select HTML/Javascript .
  5. Enter the title of your widget e.g. Link back to us or Grab this button.
  6. Copy the code below and paste it inside the window.
  7. Click Save.

<img src="YourButtonUrl"/>
<p style="font-size: 70%">For Blogger, copy and paste this code into HTML/Javascript gadget </p>
<textarea style="width: 95%; height: 80px" name="textfield"><center><a title="YourBlogName" href="YourBlogUrl" target="_blank"><img border="0" src="YourButtonUrl"/></a></center>


  • YourButtonUrl  is the link to the button.
  • YourBlogUrl is of course the url of your blog.
  • YourBlogName is of course the name of your blog
