How to add Adsense ads below post title ?
It’s really very easy to add adsense ads below post title in blogger. Inorder to add adsense ads below post title ,just follow the below steps.
Before adding the adsense ads to blogger templates , we need to encode our adsense ads code.If you add the adsense code without encoding then you can’t see any adsense ads below post title.
Encoding Adsense Ad Code ?
To encode adsense ads, first create an adsense ad and then visit centricle website to encode. In centricle web page , you need to paste your adsense code in the text area and then click ” Encode “. Copy the encoded code. Now your adsense code is ready to be added to blogger template.
Adding adsense ad code to blogger template
step 1 : Go to layout section of your blogger template and then navigate to EDIT HTML sub tab. There check the “Expand Widget Templates “.
step2 : Look up the following tag : <p><data:post.body/></p> and paste the encoded adsense ad code above that tag.
Then click save. That’s it Now we have added the adsense ad code below the post title in blogger blog successfully.
Customizing Adsense ads
Here are the few customization tips , which you can apply to increase your CTR.You might have seen that most of the bloggers will show more than Three posts in home page / labels page / archives page. But as per adsense TOS we can show only Three ads per page. So due to this we will see some blank spaces between post title and content , when the three adsense ads are already loaded.In order to avoid this error , we can show adsense ads only in Post pages i.e pages containing articles.
Showing adsense Ad only in Post pages
In order to implement this hack in your blogger template. you need to change the encoded adsense ad code to this.
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'> Encoded Adsense code here </b:if>
Now paste this code above <p><data:post.body/></p>
Making adsense ads to Float
After adding the adsense ad code to your templates , you can see that by default the adsense ad code will not allow any text to be shown nearby it.
For this we just need to modify the encoded adsense code to be added in step 2.
replace that encoded code with this one :
<div style="float:left;padding:5px;">encoded adsense ad code here</div>
Change the text in red to make adsense ad to float either to left or right.
According to me , instead of showing adsense ads in all pages ( home page , archives page and labels page ) , we can show adsense ads only in post pages to increase our ctr.
Hope you guys will like this hack. If you need any more customization , then give me your suggestions via comments.
