Add Ons and Web Site Accessories

Add Some Fun

Add ons for Web pages, or accessories as I like to call them, are not just a lot of fun for your Web site's readers but can also be very useful in helping you create a community for your Web site or even a loyal reader base. Add ons for Web pages are good for you if you are creating a Web site because you want to get the word out about something you feel strong about or if you just want to make a lot of friends online.

Even if you don't want to do these things, the add ons are still really cool to have on your Web site.

Adding add ons to Web pages is usually a very simple thing to do. The service or Web site offering the add on usually makes it pretty easy for you to add their add on to your Web pages. Sometimes you need to sign up with the service that's offering the add on but many times you just need to copy and paste the code they give you for the add on right to your HTML code.
