Very informative and helpful, Thanks

This is pretty good, didnt realise about the H1 and H2 heading sizes. I was thinking of how to wrap the text around the image for my first article. I will now be doing exactly what you have done.

I am not too found of making keywords bold but I understand its point in relation to seo properties.

What is the difference between TAGS AND PRODUCTS TAGS.

Is it just me, or did the video have almost no sound? I had to scoot right up to the speakers to hear anything.

No, the sound is really really low

can you please tell us how to arrange google ads in the body of the articles.
Sep 8, 2009 6:06pm
Hi TonjaRose,

You can't actually arrange the Google ads in the articles. They are placed by us to get the best click thru ratio without being intrusive or obstructive to the reader.

It is really an informative video that gives me a better idea on how I can present my articles better to the readers. Thank you!

I think this would be good but very blury and I could not hear it although I turned my volumes all up full and on screen. Thanks for that.
Why is it that my images to not go on my articles. I have noticed others with the same problem too. thanks
Jan 16, 2010 3:00am
Okay so this makes more sense on how to do the images. I also wasn't quite sure of the h2 h3 headings although I had used them on one article. Sometimes it's the simple things that get complicated. Easy to follow video, thanks.

Thanks for the help!
Feb 28, 2010 11:05am
Thanks for the tips! I did struggle with the audio a bit on it, though.
Jun 1, 2010 6:18pm
Wow..that was very informative. Thanks. Will give it a go.

What do you do when you upload a video and the green bars say they are loading, then have loaded, but the video is not there?
Jul 7, 2010 3:18pm
Try Resubmitting the video. Its possible that your video is too large to upload to Infobarrel. Send us an email through the Contact Us page and we'll try and figure out what's going on.
Jul 12, 2010 6:16am
Thank you very much - very helpful and very well done. A+!
Aug 30, 2010 2:24am
There is no sound,can you help me?
Oct 11, 2010 7:35pm
The sound is too low, I was not able to hear anything. I will use earphones and try once again.
Nov 4, 2010 9:45pm
Great info, thanks for the help with images, I'm looking forward to making some changes and creating more interesting images instead of always having mine in the same spots:)
Jan 11, 2011 3:57pm
Thanks. I just found this. I will be fixing even more articles now.
Jan 11, 2011 3:59pm
Hi all, lately I am having the problem of not having the option of "modify image property" show up when I follow the instructions for dragging, dropping and clicking on the image...can you help, please? I do get the option "alignment" but it doesn't wrap the text. Am I missing a step?
Jan 13, 2011 2:56am
Hi Footloose,

Try right clicking on the article and go to image properties, there you will be able to set the alignment and if you would like text wrapping or not.
Jan 14, 2011 5:09pm
Thank you Chint, I'll try it and get back to you. :)
Jan 14, 2011 5:12pm
Sorry I meant right click on the image
Feb 17, 2011 3:48pm
nice step-by-step instruction...
Apr 10, 2011 11:40pm
I am still having trouble with this. No matter what alignment I pick after right-clicking, the text only wraps one line (as though the image is only on one really big line). Any pointers? Thanks!

How do I see the video? I have the flash player, but I don't see any link to get the video started.
May 18, 2011 8:11am
Mwalter, I have had the same problem... hmmm?
Jun 24, 2011 4:31pm
I'm having the same problem as mwalter and jemorin. How do I get the video started? I have flash player.
Aug 1, 2011 9:05am
I've tried two different computers and four different browsers and still can't watch the video. What's the trick?
Aug 6, 2011 9:03pm
Same problem as the above, no videos here for me. I have flash.
Aug 8, 2011 7:33pm
Count me 6. I want to add an image to my articles, but can not seem to watch the video even tho I have it with google chrome. Any suggestions? I also would assume (because I want to get started) that I can add an image later to my article once I know how.
Aug 27, 2011 1:45pm
The video doesn't seem to be working.
Aug 31, 2011 9:46am
I found this to be very interesting and informative. Thanks.
Sep 17, 2011 6:01am
Thanks I appreciate the hard work that went into this video.
Sep 25, 2011 2:25am
I found this article by accident, but I am glad I did. It was really helpful and easy to understand. Thanks!
Oct 12, 2011 9:44am
Great guide. I'm a beginner here and would like to know if image to each article is required? Thanks!
Nov 12, 2011 11:48pm
No you don't have to put images in every article - they are just a good idea.
Jan 7, 2012 2:43am
Thanks for this. Easy when you know how!
Jan 20, 2012 8:44pm
Hi I was trying to remove my articles from my old website to here, I thought once its unpublished from other site it can already be publish here.
Jan 20, 2012 8:44pm
I hope you can give light to this
Feb 7, 2012 4:23am
Lots of help. Thank you.
Feb 24, 2012 4:37am
I am being really slow with this. I have added an image to my article but it is sitting at the bottom of the page and I can't drag and drop it where I want it.
Feb 24, 2012 5:42am
Oh - I've cracked it.
Mar 26, 2012 8:45pm
Is this a really old video clip? I can't hear it, which doesn't help. But also, I can't see an "Add Media" box in the menus above the article - only an "Add Image" section on the right, and that will only add the image at the bottom of the article.

it would probably help if I could hear the instructions, but like several other commenters, I've had to turn my speakers up to their highest setting and am still struggling to hear this.
Apr 9, 2012 8:21am
I like this article. Very useful.
Apr 20, 2012 6:16am
I've had the same problem as Dancingqueen - I cannot see any "Add-Media" section only Add Element which can add an image initially at the bottom. You can move the whole section up or down, but if you try to drag and drop the image into the text you get a "no-entry" icon and nothing happens. That means that you cannot get the image into the text, adjust the size or flow text around it.

Can anybody help?

I've also noticed that right clicking on the text entry section gives an "Add/Edit Image" option, but using it only allows images from a URL - not those saved as files on your hard drive etc. Is it possible to use this to upload such files?
Jun 10, 2012 1:20pm
I'm in the same boat. I'm having trouble getting my image in my article anywhere except for at the very top or very bottom. This video seems to be out-of-date and does not help me (may be my fault)
Nov 4, 2012 5:31pm
I can barely hear the audio and I'm having the same problem as others... there is no "Add Media" tab. It seems to be out-of-date.
Apr 4, 2013 2:31pm
Extremely helpful Thanks!
May 25, 2013 1:20pm
I can't find the "Add Media" either and when I try to insert a photo using the "Add: Image" element it just pops up a window that only has one option: to close it.
Jun 9, 2014 10:40am
Promising website! I'm going to fill it with some of my best stuff, although I'm not sure, nor have I located the possible areas where I can place my "mug" or make some money. Any assistance for this new member would be appreciated.
Oct 29, 2015 7:30pm
can I use other people youtube and image??
Jan 19, 2016 4:55am
The video stops at 01:38 and goes back to the beginning
