This script will create a text link on your Web page. When someone clicks on that link their browser will add the page to their favorites folder.


This is a very useful tool as encouraging people to add your site, or a page on your site, to their favorites folder will obviously make it much more likely that they will become a repeat visitor.

Title For the Bookmark – This is the name that will be suggested by default when a person clicks on the link to add the page to their favorites folder. When they click on the Add to Favorites Link on your page they will see a window similar to the one below and the text you have entered into the Title for the Bookmark box will appear in the Name field.
