Create a Link Exchange Form

Hi people,
Today I'll be telling you a simple way to create your own Link Exchange Form with ease. You might think that you have to deal with Text-Boxes, Buttons and all but you can do this without having any knowledge about HTML.

And did you know that you can create this form using Google Docs? That's right, you can actually create the form there. Follow these simple 6 steps...

Step 1:

So first open Google Docs.

Step 2:

Click New and then select FORM from the Drop Down menu. Now enter the name for the form and also a little description if you want to tell the visitor how to fill the form or something like that. You can see an example in the image below.

Step 3:

In the Question field enter URL, this specifies that the visitor has to enter the URL of his/her blog/website.

You also have a Help text area where you can tell the visitor to enter their URL.
Let the Question Type be as Text. Now tick(check) the box where it says "Make this a required question". This generates an error when the visitor leaves this field blank.

Step 4:

Now move to the 2nd Question in the bottom. If you don't have it go to Add Question in the top and select Text from the Drop Down. Repeat Step 3 but change the text in the question field to Title. If required tell the visitor what to do in that area.

Step 5:

Repeat the step 4 again and create Reciprocal Field where the visitor is required to enter the URL where he/she placed the link to your blog/website.

Save the form after all the fields which you need are created.

Step 6:

Go to More Actions from above and select Edit Confirmation. This paragraph appears when the visitor to your blog/website submits the form.

Now again to More Actions and select Embed. Copy the code and return to Blogger.

Create a new post and embed the code in the post. Now Publish the post.

You now have a professional Link Exchange Form!

Additional tip:

If you want to receive email notifications when a visitor submits the form, do the following.

Go to See responses which is just beside the More Actions and select Spread Sheet. Now on the top you can see a Share field. Click that and go to Set Notification Rules. Now

Check the options which say A user submits the form & Email-right away

See the Link exchange Form that i created for an example.
