B$ Help: Claiming Your Blog

« Blogs | Help Index | Premium Membership »

To claim your blog, follow this guide, and be sure to note the special sections for specific blog hosts/systems (e.g., MySpace, LiveJournal). If you want to have your blog removed from the game, scroll down to the last section.

To claim your blog you need to display an image button with a link to BlogShares on your blog's homepage. Follow these steps to obtain the code that you need to add to your blog and complete the claim process:

1. Make sure that your blog is in the BlogShares System.

2. Once your blog is in the system, go to its blogs.php in BlogShares, and click on the "Claim Blog" link on the right-side menu. This link is toward the bottom of the right column.

3. When you click the link, you'll receive a claim code (HTML) in an email message from BlogShares, and you’ll see information similar to what is shown in the following image (where the title and URL are appropriate for your blog):

4. Copy the code from the email message or your Web browser and insert it in your blog code (e.g., in the sidebar, in the footer, and so on). BlogShares rules require that you maintain the claim code visibly on your blog at all times. Place the code provided in a static (permanent) place on your blog. Please be certain to read the full text of the rules.

5. Check back on your blog claim in a few days (allow up to a week) to see if the claim has been processed. Look for these indications:

BlogShares rules require you to display the claim code visibly on your blog at all times. Many blog hosts and systems limit the ways that a user can post code on the homepage however. Follow these instructions for work-arounds for specific systems:

For instructions on claiming co-operative and team blogs, please visit this forum thread.

Changes in blog hosting systems and coding accidents sometimes result in lost claim codes. If you lose your code, you can easily create a new one by replacing the relevant details in the example below:

<a href=><img src="" alt="Listed on BlogShares" width="117" height="23"></a>

Where "URL" is your blog URL and "#####" is your userID.

Alternately, if you have any difficulty, you can try this option, which encodes the special characters in the code:

<a href=""><img src="" alt="Listed on BlogShares" width="117" height="23"/></a>

Again, where "URL" is your blog URL and "#####" is your userID. Note that the "http%3A%2F%2F" translates into "http://". If you have additional slashes in your blog URL, replace them with %2F as well.

Many blogs are listed in the system multiple times. The most common reasons for a blog being listed twice is the 'www' portion of a domain. For example, if your blog address is:

It would be wise to suggest the following as alternate url (assuming that the two addresses do in fact go to the same exact location):

More on Alt-URLs here.

If you have difficulty claiming your blog, follow these instructions to get help:

To have your blog removed from BlogShares, you must send the request to [email protected] You will need to prove that you are the author/owner of the blog before we remove it. This may include temporarily adding a small text to a specific part of the blog, profile page, or other area worked out between you and the administrators of BlogShares.
