Use Avatars to Show Authority

Technorati Screen Grab - AviatorsToday’s tip is quite simple and easy, it’s merely creating an avatar for yourself which will represent you across the web.

An avatar is just an image. A logo or icon that represents you or your business. It could be your picture, your cat’s picture, a cartoon character or just a cool design. I’d recommend picking one that is original for best results.

Now, when you create your blog, put your avatar on it. When you register at a form, use your avatar. Services like Technorati and MyBlogLog have the ability to upload a profile image and you’d want to stick it there too. There is even a global avatar service called Gravatar that will show your avatar on other blogs that have this functionality enabled in the comments. Ideally you’d want them all to match to build your identity. But mixing a photo and a logo treatment also seems to work well.
