New VOB Badges | How To Link Directly To Your Profile

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Thank you for linking to VOB!

Thank you for linking to VOB and helping spread our message! We do have a suggestion that will be even more beneficial for your business/profile:

We recommend linking the badge directly to your VOB profile (instead of our home page). This will reinforce to your visitors that your business is indeed owned by a veteran, active duty military or reservist. It may also add more value to your website in the search engines.


Update Link (badge already on your site):

Copy the entire link of your VOB profile and change the link direction from https://www.veteranownedbusiness.com to the full link of your profile here (copy the address bar in your browser and you should have the entire link) Example: https://www.veteranownedbusiness.com/business/25867/famous-veterans.

Update Code (using a CMS):

If you are using a content management system and/or know how to add a link, you can copy and paste the default code and change out the first addresses with your business’ profile link (see red links below):

Code below links a badge directly to VOB’s front page (link in red):
<a href=”https://www.veteranownedbusiness.com” target=”_blank” ><img title=”We are a proud member of Veteran Owned Business. Click this badge to see our profile!” img src=”http://www.veteranownedbusiness.com/images/banner_links/VeteranOwnedBusiness-Member-Horizontal.jpg” alt=” We are a proud member of Veteran Owned Business. Click this badge to see our profile!” border=”0px” /></a>

Code below links a badge directly to a VOB profile (red link shows change):
*Change the first link below (one in red) to the link to your profile. One  shown is an example.
<a href=”https://www.veteranownedbusiness.com/business/25867/famous-veterans” target=”_blank” ><img title=”We are a proud member of Veteran Owned Business. Click this badge to see our profile!” img src=”http://www.veteranownedbusiness.com/images/banner_links/VeteranOwnedBusiness-Member-Horizontal.jpg” alt=”We are a proud member of Veteran Owned Business. Click this badge to see our profile!” border=”0px” /></a>

We are a proud member of Veteran Owned Business. Click this badge to see our profile!

Click badge above to see the example provided as a live link


***We recommend having any link to our site open in a separate window.  This way your VOB profile opens up in a box and your website is still open.***

We will Tweet about your business!

Please let us know when you’ve set up a link directly to your profile and we will send a “thank you” message to our social network (when time permits).  Just email us your contact info and where we can find the badge and we’ll share it!

Need help? Feel free to call us (877) 862-5478 Ext 2 or email us.

Additionally, we’ve added a few dozen new badges available to members that include ones for SDVOSB Members, Technology Members, Law Firm Members, and more. Look for “VOB Badge” in our menu (3rd option from the left).  Here are a few samples (click each to see larger sized badge).
