Weebly 2 pages: 1 [2]

Hi,

Just wanted to say thank you so much for all the advice on this thread - it's been really, really helpful as I was struggling a bit with my Weebly site.

Just got one question, if someone can help me out?

I am using the method outline by Steve - adding the product image then pasting in the link. Before I add any more links to my site, I just wanted to check I am getting the coding correct.

So for this pillow: http://www.zazzle.com/modern_striped_cushion_dark_teal_and_white_pillow-189954989336023090

I would use the code - with the added bits for no follow and for referral tracking - to make this:

http://www.zazzle.com/modern_striped_cushion_dark_teal_and_white_pillow-189954989336023090?rf=238402711509282091rel=“nofollow"&tc=mysite

Am I correct in not leaving a gap (space) before each extra bit of code? And do I need to add < and > at the beginning start of the coding? I will just be leaving 'mysite' as 'mysite' because...it's my site Smile

Anyway, if someone could take a look if they have time and correct me if I'm wrong, that would be most helpful.

Cheers,
Jen


EDIT: I'm pretty sure I've done this wrong as the whole of the above link is not linked...

You're almost there...

You have:
http://www.zazzle.com/modern_striped_cushion_dark_teal_and_white_pillow-189954989336023090?rf=238402711509282091rel=“nofollow"&tc=mysite

and you should have:
http://www.zazzle.com/modern_striped_cushion_dark_teal_and_white_pillow-189954989336023090?rf=238402711509282091&tc=mysite

You don't use rel="nofollow" in a url like you're trying to do, instead you use it as part of the href construct that makes something a link. Like this:
Code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.zazzle.com/modern_striped_cushion_dark_teal_and_white_pillow-189954989336023090?rf=238402711509282091&tc=mysite">click to see this great cushion</a>

You can also have the link open in a new window, like this:
Code:
<a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.zazzle.com/modern_striped_cushion_dark_teal_and_white_pillow-189954989336023090?rf=238402711509282091&tc=mysite">click to see this great cushion</a>

I hope that all helps some

Aaah - that makes total sense!

I started out with href's then dicided to change to straight forward links and got myself a bit confused.

Thanks for your help - much appreciated Roses

You can also add nofollow at the end of the link like this:

<a href="http://www.zazzle.com/modern_striped_cushion_dark_teal_and_white_pillow-189954989336023090?rf=238402711509282091&tc=mysite" rel="nofollow">click to see this great cushion</a>

Hi Kaleena!
Thank you for your great info about Weebly!! I needed a simple site for promoting my Dachshund cartoon products separated from HappyLabradors.com.

I just created mine. Here it is.

Your weebly site is super cute :-) I love dachshunds. I made a weebly site about my Siberian cat and I sell Zazzle cat products :-)

I’m just getting started on Weebly. I’ve embedded code from zazzle in a new section and can see my zazzle item but it’s not in a format I like. The T-shirt tutorial was great but it was done in 2014 and I’m wondering if it still works. I’m not seeing how to drag embedded code next to each other to creat columns. Hope this makes sense.

I have been using Weebly for years, I will try to help...but keep in mind that depending on what theme you are using things may be different in how they look. First, are you adding the code to a post or the sidebar?

when adding it to the sidebar it automatically adjusts the size to a narrow column to fit the dimensions of the side bar and if your image or content is too wide it adds a slider bar under it.

When adding the embed code widget to a post and if you want your image on one side and text on the other you drag the code widget first then drag the text box widget and drop it into the code widget trying to drop it on the side you want it to be on. If it goes where you didn't want it you can drag it around or delete it and try again.

I hope this helps and I will check back soon to see how you fared. If all else fails you can open a help ticket with Weebly support and they are pretty good about helping.

Also keep in mind, I use an older theme so I am not sure if controls work the same with the newer fancy themes.

Good luck!

Hey Shelli thank you for your reply. I'm still on a learning curve with Zazzle and now Weebly. I'm trying to decide if I should postpone a website for a bit and concentrate on my Zazzle stuff. I'm not sure how much extra traffic a website provides. I know promotion is the key but I'm wondering if just promoting my zazzle stores is best for now. I've been away for about a week and am trying to remember where I was... ugh..

Hi, I am always glad to help. If it were me I would focus mostly on your Zazzle and just share to social media like Pinterest or Twitter for now.

Maybe start building a Weebly site at your leisure just to have it ready to go when you are more ready or even just use it for the fun of it at first to get familiar with how it works. you are allowed to have more than one site with Weebly, even the free plan, so when you are ready you could even build a new site.

Driving traffic is hard and very time consuming and if you are not good at it like I am not, it will wear you down quickly. That is why I don't think of my site as a huge promotional boon but more like a hub for all my other online venues to connect to me. I mostly promote on Pinterest and Twitter and sometimes Instagram, but most of my Zazzle sales still seem to come from the marketplace here at Zazzle and 3rd party promotions. So it is possible to get sales even if you don't promote anywhere but here in the show me forum.

What ever you decide to do I wish you the best and will help when I can if you need it.

Cheers Smile
