blog Santa Rosa, CAHello there, Internet fans. It’s Ryan Perry with Simple Biz Support. Today I’ve got an interesting little tool that if you’re a blogger, you’ll definitely want to use. That little tool is tynt.com. Basically what it does is you put this code into your blog, and anytime somebody copies your text and paste it, say, an email or those types of things, it automatically creates a link within the email so that when the email is sent to the user, not only is the text copied but also a source link back to your blog. Instead of somebody just copying and pasting your content without knowing where it came from, they’re automatically going to add a link.

What you’ll need to do is you’ll need to log in to tynt.com. Realize that when you log in, your login name is actually the website that you’re going to put this code on. For me, it’s going to be my blogging page, which is simplebizsupportblog.com. Just realize that when you go to log back in to the account, the username is your web address.

Once you log in, you have this information. This is an overview. I just installed the code today. The code is actually pretty neat. And what you’ll want to do is it’s a little JavaScript and you’ll want to log in. I’ve logged into my blog. You go to Appearance and Editor. On the Editor… I’m gonna have to move the page over. What we’re doing is we’re going over to the header section here. And in the header section, what we’re doing is we’re looking for the code, your head code. So, what we’re doing is we’re looking for some code that says “Head” with a “/”. There’s the script. Actually here’s the Tynt script right here.

What we’re looking for is we’re looking for this little piece of code here, which is the head. This is the actual code that’s being dropped into your account. You’ll get that directly from the Tynt website. When you drop that in, now any content that is copied from your page will automatically have a link.

Let’s go into the blog – here’s some code. I’m just going to grab some code from my page. I’m going to hit copy and go to my email account create a new email. You’ll see here’s the text that I copied, but it also adds this little bit of code. The other nice thing is it will actually track it. When you go and you create an account and have some history going on, you can actually see how many people have copied your content, any links that have been generated, incremental traffic that have been created by having your code out there.

Again, if you’re a blogger who blogs on a regular basis, I would definitely recommend Tynt. It’s very simple. It’s very useful and it’s automated. All you need to do is just drop the code and it takes care of the rest from there. If you have any questions, feel free to drop a message below. Hope you found this information helpful.
