Music is a faithful companion of many internet users when they are connected to the web, especially with the proliferation of radio stations on the web, allowing you to give your conventional radio a rest, which is also a way to save energy.
In view of this, many radio stations have migrated to the web, offering online programming as well. Others, however, keep their version only virtual and, in the great majority, the songs integrate most of the programming.
If you want to be even more successful with your blog, a creative way to get more readers connected to your email address is to put a radio on your website. So, while the internet user is checking the latest news on your blog you will be able to enjoy a good background sound and, for this reason, you can continue a few more minutes connected to your website.
If you liked the idea and intend to implement it in your email address, pay attention to the tips I am giving below and you will have great results.
Introduction and more introduction
(if you prefer, see the links on the side and go to the session you want – it’s practical and easy)
It is important to ensure that there are no problems when placing a radio on your website. It may happen that when the Internet user changes pages within your blog
The radio player will restart, that is, load again with the page. To avoid this, the best way is to install the player on a separate page and not the player within the pages of the site itself.
To choose which radio to put on your blog, you can check the forums that deal with the topic and where new web radio addresses are always available.
In reality, this topic on the internet still seems recent, as few places discuss the topic, but for you, this can be a great opportunity to have a differential on your website. Not all bloggers work with this initiative.
As already said, when you put a radio on the site you can offer a differential to your readers and attract more others to access your blog. There are several ways, one of which is to install the desired radio player on a separate page, which would call the rest of the site using a frame.
To better understand how to put the radio on the site, it is possible to say that the structure of a player must have two pages and the page of the site. That is, an Index.html, a player.html, and more the page that refers to your website or blog. You must download the frame file from the web radios that are available on the Internet.

In general, these pages are compressed into one file and you must unzip them to access each one. Once you have the files in hand to put the radio on the site,
You must edit them, starting with the index.html file, which must be changed in a website editor, and you must change the current address for the address of the main page of your blog.
If you prefer the radio to be accessed from the main address of your website, it is necessary to keep the file name index.html and rename the file on your blog’s main page to index2.html, for example. The disadvantage of some sites, such as Blogger, Webnode, Weebly, and Ucoz, among others, is that because they do not offer access via FTP, you can’t take advantage of this feature.
One of the most used sites to generate radio players is Auto-Host DJ, which offers a free radio player generator that does all the work of creating the script that goes inside the page. Here the staff shows how it should be done, what is the radio address and the link to the generator.

WordPress users (even easier)
If you use WordPress you can disregard everything you read above, as there are plugins that do all the work for you. The best and most common plugin used to place a radio on a website or blog is Radio Station.
This plugin allows you to add users to manage the radio, create playlists, schedule songs, and even show what music is playing when a visitor is on your website.
Another very cool plugin is 8tracks internet radio, which allows you to put songs from Youtube and Vimeo to play, in addition to being able to use various formats, such as MP3, WMA, among others.
This plugin is not so widely used since Radio Station covers all the features, however, it is an alternative to play music directly from the web, without having to upload it to a server.
