How to Install the Instagram Badge on your Website [VIDEO]

Instagram recently released web profiles for users, a change for the previously strictly-mobile platform. If you’re a brand using the social network, you want to take advantage of every avenue in terms of getting more followers and now that it is web-friendly it is much easier to do that.

Today’s video shows you how to install the Instagram badge that the network created after the release of web profiles to help you attract more website visitors to follow your photos.
Step 1: Visit Instagram.com and scroll down to click “My Account”

Step 2: Click the “Badges” section of your profile after you have logged in

Step 3: Select the badge you would like to see on your website and then copy the code that appear underneath it

Step 4: Go to the backend of your website where you typically install sidebar/footer information (content seen on every page of your site)

Step 5: Paste the code in a text widget or other widget that accepts HTML code

Step 6: Save and refresh for the official Instagram badge linking to your account

If your brand on Instagram? Why or why not?

when I go to the badge site the badges are not appearing...but you can scroll over where they are suppose to be and select one and the code appears. But when you paste the code on the website the same thing happens...no icon appears, but you can scroll over where its meant to be and click the space and get directed to your Instagram account????

Hi Amy 

I just followed your tutorial on how to install instagram logo on blog page. But on the sidebar of the homepage the whole script as well as the logo now appears! What to do?

@Guest1001question I don't know why that's happening. Maybe you pasted the copy wrong? If not, maybe you should get in contact with the creators of your theme and see why it's not accepting the code and where else you could put it that might work.
