TypePad Affiliates: How to Add Custom Links to Your Blog

Host a TypePad affiliate link on your site, and earn up to $30 per new blogger you send to TypePad!  If you are not sure how to post an affiliate link (or any other link) to your blog, here are some pointers.

How to Get  a Commission Junction Link  CJ Picture

  1. Log into your Commission Junction publisher account. If you do not have an account, you can sign up here.
  2. Pick the specific text link or banner you would like to host on your blog.
  3. Click “get html” listed to the far right of the link information.
  4. Copy all of the HTML coding for the link.

How to Post a Link in TypePad

  1. Log into TypePad and access the blog you would like to update (must be a paid blog, the free microblog does not allow this customization).
  2. There are a few ways to add a TypePad affiliate link to your blog:

Option 1 

Go to Design > Customize current design > Custom Sidebar (not available on all themes)

You can paste the code into this box and it will update to the side of your blog. 

Option 1

Option 2

Go to Design > Content > (top) Categories – Widgets > Modules – Embed your own HTML > Details – Embed  your own HTML – Add this module

You can paste the code into this box and it will update to the side of your blog. You can position the module where you want it by dragging and dropping it. Don't forget to Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

Option 2


You can add some html customization as well by including the html tags:
    1. <b>link html</b> Bold your text link
    2. <i>link html</i> Italic your text link
    3. <center>link html</center> Center your text link or banner
    4. <br> Break your line

We run Star Wars Shop ads from Commission Junction at the bottom of all our Star Wars Cake posts. The way I add these ads is that I open the post in TypePad's Dashboard. Click on the html tag. Scroll to the appropriate place (in my case the very bottom of the post) and paste the HTML for the ad. MAKE SURE you preview your change before you save it.

I've just started playing with Microsoft's Live Writer (which is free) in Live Writer, you can embedd HTML by clicking on the Source tab.

Thanks for sharing this - great insight. Are you part of the TypePad Affiliate program? If you are recommending TypePad to friends you could add a permanent link or image to your side bar and earn revenue that way from us?
