Why Place a badge
For those of you that have blogs and websites, installing a badge will help Empire Avenue assess the traffic to your blog and enable us to factor that into your Influence Share Price on Empire Avenue. Without such a badge your blog may not be counted as high in the calculation
What does it look like
The first size is a 125x125 pixel version -- those of you into affiliate advertising on your blogs, this size is for you!
The second is this larger (and very swanky) 190x167 pixel version. Obviously this one is meant to focus attention on your most excellent share value and stimulate further purchase in your stock. Look at that one...just makes you want to go out and buy some of that BGRIER stock...whatever that is...
Of course, you'd rather have your ticker displaying rather than DUPS, so simply replace DUPS in the line reading 'var eav_t = "DUPS";' with your ticker symbol (yes, in all caps, and don't touch the quotes or the semicolon either please). Oh, and don't forget to select the size of badge you want. In the code you'll see a section marked 'var eav_s = 2;' This is the badge size. Change the 2 to a 1 if you want a 100x100px badge.
