Google gadgets are great! They let you customise your google page with information and links that are relevant to you. It is very easy to get started, so here goes...

Do you have a google account? If so, please sign in and skip ahead to number 2. If not you can sign up for a free one by clicking on the sign in link in the top right hand corner. This will take you to a page titled Personalize Your Homepage. On the right are two boxes. The top one is for signing in - but you are not a member yet. You need the lower box, which says, Not using Google Mail or other Google Account services? Click on Create an account now. You will have to enter your email address and a password. Make sure your password is secure as the system will not accept an insecure one. By this I mean, make sure you mix some letters and numbers into the password. You also have to tell your country, and type in some hard-to-read characters - this is to make sure that you are human and not a machine. Click on create my account.

Google will now send you an email, to make sure that your email address was correct. Check your emails and read the one from google. Click on the confirmation link in the email. You will be taken back to the google site which will tell you:

2. Start adding content

Atlast we can add the content and personalise your page! In the top left hand corner of the google page is a link saying Add content ». Click on this.

The page now has a google logo, a search box a button marked Search homepage content and a smaller link to the right of the big button that says Add by URL. Click on this. You will now be prompted for a webaddress starting with http://

3. Copy the URL you want from the list above on this page

Come back to this very page (http://www.concepttshirts.co.uk/google-gadgets.php) and choose the gadget that you want to add. Copy the URL of your choice.

For the UK amazon site you should copy http://www.concepttshirts.co.uk/googlegadgets/amazonuksearch.xml

Paste your choice into the box on the google page that starts with http:// .Make sure you don't have two lots of http:// by mistake. Either delete the one in the box, or do not paste it in.
