Linking my Blog to my website page

Hello everyone!
I am trying to link my blog on google to my website so when people press the blog page, it will take them to my Google Blog page. I followed instructions and added the HTML on my website (blog page) but every time I try to save it, it;s not saving. It's "optimizing images" forever and never stops until I close the whole yola page. I repeat the same thing again and it doesn't work.
Am I doing something wrong? when I add the HTML I can see my Blog page but it's not saving!
Has anyone had this problem?
Thanks

 Hello Rola, 

I suggest trying to clear the cache in your browser to see if that helps. If not, and the images are still optimizing, then you may need to resize your images smaller so the page doesn't take so long to load up or save! Here's more information about that: Optimizing the pictures you add to your site

Please let us know if your'e still having troubles with this.

I removed the video and pictures and it is still taking forever to optimize. I just have one page of text on the blog!
Is there a different way to do it?
I tried iframe, it didn't work.

I only have one post there, I deleted the video and kept the picture to check if it's gonna link but it didn't.

Here's the html I am using (adding on my blog page on Yola):

Hope you can find a solution :)

Hi again
Probably no one answered my question as my website wasn't working for 2 days. Now it is back! I tried again the link to redirect when you click on menu bar but it's still not saving (optimizing for ever).
Anyone can help please?
I am entering the right link (see it in my previous post) and I am getting it on the page, that's how I know what I am doing is correct.

Hi Rola

Sorry that no one replied to you on this thread!  Your code looks perfectly correctly.  Would you mind sharing your website address (URL) so that we can check why it is not working on your site?

Thanks

Hi Rola

Thanks for sharing your URL. It just occurred to me that someone else had this problem before. See this forum thread: Optimizing Images Problem?

ics/optimizing_images_problem">Optimizing Images Problem?

Two things you can do:
  1. Make sure that you create a new, blank page.
  2. Use this code instead of the one on the tutorial:


<script type='text/javascript'>

if(window.location.host.indexOf('sitebuilder.yola.com') == -1){
window.location = 'http://www.youreventgenie.blogspot.com';
}

</script>

<script type='text/javascript'>

if(window.location.host.indexOf('.yola.com') == -1){
window.location = 'http://www.youreventgenie.blogspot.com';
}

</script>

I hope this will work for you. If not, please let us know.
