As I work to improve my blog, I have been searching for a way to make a sneeze page with images. A sneeze page serves as an index of sorts that will help your readers find more of your articles to read related to a specific topic. Think of it sort of like a table of contents.

Sneeze Page With Images
In it’s simplest form, a sneeze page is a collection of links related to a certain topic. So, I am working on a sneeze page for my recipes. But, some people found it unattractive in its original form which was basically just a collection of links with few images.
My theme doesn’t come with an option to create an index with nicely placed images. And, I didn’t want to use a plugin which could slow down my site. Thanks to the wonderful ladies at Pajama Affiliates (and Sallie at Sallie Borrink), I found a wonderful alternative.
I have used Easy Product Display to create images with clickable titles. In the past, I’ve used it to create attractive Amazon Buy Buttons, but I had no idea that I could use it to create my own images with links. This is the super simple process I used that Sallie shared.
- Sign up for Easy Product Display.
- Click on Create Product Displays.
- Click on “add” and add the link, title, and image link for each recipe.
- Then edit (the pencil) and select “Do Not Display a Button“
- Go into settings and uncheck the box that says nofollow since you do want these to be followed to help with your SEO.
Now that I know how to do this, I plan on adding a sneeze page with images for each of my major topics on my blog. While Easy Product Display isn’t free, it’s definitely one of my favorite blogging tools so far. What do you think?
I have learned SO MUCH from the Pajama Affiliates courses I’ve taken so far. If you haven’t signed up, I highly recommend it.

Well I learned a new term today! I didn’t know why it would be called a sneeze page until I viewed the sneeze on the Problogger page. I have always kept my sneezes to myself, which I know they don’t recommend but mine are little and I don’t want to spread the germs. Working in healthcare so many years, I’m in the habit of silently sneezing, practically, and rarely sneeze too. Anyway, I get it now, do love the visuals and it’s much easier to find things. I get irked when a blog or site doesn’t have a search function. I especially appreciate the thumbnail pics when I ‘m not wearing my readers–so much easier to see than the fine print. Love the name Pajama Affiliates also!
Always glad to introduce new things!
That title sure got my attention! Never heard it before! LOL
It is a fun name!
