GeoTrust Site Seal Icons

GeoTrust's site seals are an effective way to make sure your customers know your site has the stamp of approval from a leading global Certificate Authority for secure e-business transactions. GeoTrust's patented smart seal technology provides fast, reliable and user-friendly web site identity authentication, and instant proof to your customers that your site can be trusted.

How Dynamic Site Seals Work

GeoTrust site seals are dynamically-generated when a user accesses your site. Every time your page is displayed in a browser an embedded piece of JavaScript code makes a connection to the GeoTrust registry server. The registry server checks the referring URL, verifies a valid GeoTrust enrollment, and sends back the dynamic site seal graphic as a response. The graphic includes a live time-date stamp and, for True BusinessID certificates, your company name is embedded in the seal. Users can click on a site seal to display additional verification information.

Site Seal Installation

To install the GeoTrust site seal icon, simply add the following lines of JavaScript to each web page on which you want the site seal to appear. Site seals are not activated for Free Trial certificates.

<!-- GeoTrust Smart Icon tag. Do not edit. -->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" TYPE="text/javascript" SRC="//smarticon.geotrust.com/si.js"></SCRIPT>
<!-- end GeoTrust Smart Icon tag -->

This script will retrieve your GeoTrust registration data from GeoTrust's enrollment registry server and display the site seal on your web page.

Remember, the web page on which you place this seal must use exactly the same domain that is in your SSL enrollment application. For example, if your SSL certificate is issued to secure.example.com the site seal will only show on pages for secure.example.com and not on pages for, say, www.example.com.

Microsoft FrontPage Installation:

In order to properly install your GeoTrust site seal on your website using Microsoft FrontPage you will need to follow one of the two procedures below. Otherwise FrontPage will change the HTML code for the seal, causing the icon to function improperly.

Method 1
One way to add the Tag with Frontpage 2000 is as follows:

  1. Open the web page and put the cursor where you want the icon to appear
  2. On the main menu, choose Insert -> Advanced -> HTML to open up the HTML Markup dialog
  3. Paste the non-comment lines of the Tag into the dialog as shown below and click OK.
    HTML Markkup
  4. Save the file (in the menu File->Save, or press CTRL-S)

The resulting HTML from FrontPage will look like this:

<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" startspan -->
< SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" TYPE="text/javascript" SRC="//smarticon.geotrust.com/si.js"></SCRIPT>
< !-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" endspan -->

The opening and closing webbot comments added by FrontPage seem to prevent "file:" from being added when the page is opened and then saved in Frontpage.

Method 2
The other way to essentially accomplish the same thing is to open the HTML source file in a text editor such as Notepad and add the webbot comment lines manually. Before the Tag, add:

<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" startspan -->

And after the Tag, add:

<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" endspan -->

So that your HTML source looks like:

<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" startspan -->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" TYPE="text/javascript" SRC="//smarticon.geotrust.com/si.js"></SCRIPT>
<!-- webbot bot="HTMLMarkup" endspan -->
