An image with their feed gadget in the Google gadget directory.
Having an image next to your feed really distinguishes you from the crowd and since like 90 percent of the feeds in the Google gadget directory do not have an image, it is an easy way to truly stand out.
But how do you get one?
The image that is the default for feed gadgets is the “feed” symbol I have labeled “poop”, the Google gadget directory shows the default image when there is no other image associated with the feed.
Er, okay, then how do you associate an image with a feed?
The way I know how to do it is through FeedBurner. If you are using FeedBurner for your feeds…
1) Log into your feedburner account
2) Choose your feed and go to the “Optimize” tab.
3) Choose “Feed Image Burner” from the menu on left
4) Follow the instructions on that page.
Okay, you are done. There is now an image associated with your feed.
If you are not using feedburner…
Want to see the image I have for my feed?…
(click on it, see what happens.,. you know you wanna…)
Okay, so I am not a branding expert I was drunk and I found it funny.
