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 account 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:

You can now start clicking on any item and adding content. Just click on add it now underneath something that interests you and it will be added to your page!


3. More personal content

Around the web you can find google modules that are useful. These have to be added by URL. To do this first find a google module that you want to use on the net - for example, there is an amazon search box located at http://www.concepttshirts.co.uk/googlegadgets/amazonussearch.xml

Using this as an example, copy the address above and go back to your main google page. In the top left hand corner of the google page is the link saying Add content ». Click on this as you did before. 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. Paste the URL into the box.

Paste the URL 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.

4. Almost there!

Click Add. Google will then start the process of making your personal homepage. It will ask you: You are about to add a feature that was not created by google... Just click on OK.

5. See it in action!

Now click on Back to homepage in the top left hand corner, and you will return to your google homepage, personalised for you!
