How to Put Adsense ads on Blogger

If you want to earn money from your site/blog, Google Adsense is the most popular service to monetize your blog or website content. When implemented, Adsense will display targeted Google ads on your blog and they can generate revenue on either a per-click or per-impression basis.

Before adding your ads, keep in mind that Adsense allows only up to 3 ad units, 3 link units and 2 search boxes per page.

In this tutorial i will show you the three ways you can add Adsense ads to your blog.

1. Adsense Gadget

Use this method to add ad unit as a widget, in places outside the blog post area. You can position it by simply dragging it in Page Elements, just like any other widget. To add the Adsense Gadget, follow these steps:

Step 1. Log in to your Blogger Dashboard, go to Layout and click on the "Add a Gadget" link on the right side.

Step 4. Click on the Save button to save the settings.

3. Adsense code

The most notable benefits of using this method are:
  • You can place ad anywhere in your blog
  • You can add the code anywhere in your blog template - in your post content or page.
  • To find out which format perform the best, custom channels will help you to track the performance of specific groups of ad units.
  • You can choose types other than ad unit i.e. link unit, search box.

To create an ad unit:

Step 1. Go to Google Adsense website.
Step 2. Click on My ads tab, go to Ad units and then click on the "New ad unit" button.

Step 3. Choose your ad type, choose format and colors and assign channels.
Step 4. When you have finished editing, click on the Save and get code >> button and copy the code provided.

To add an ad unit to your blog, you have the following options:
  • Paste the code in a HTML/Javascript gadget
  • Paste the code in the blog post or page HTML section, or
  • Paste the code direct in your template. (if you choose this option, first you should convert adsense ad code)

Why Google AdSense is the Best Advertising Program for Your Blog

Why Google AdSense is the Best Advertising Program for Your Blog

One of the best ways to make money online via blogging is by displaying advertisements on your blog. There are many ad networks available such as AdSense, Chitika, VigLink, Infolinks and many others. Obviously, we can’t clutter our blogs with too many ads, so we need to choose the best and most effective program available for the purpose of making money from our blogs.

Google AdSense For Blog

AdSense is a product from Google that allows us to show contextual ads on a blog. It’s one of the best monetization ad networks available for any website, and people are making thousands of dollars every day using only Google AdSense.

What are the benefits of using AdSense?

One of the direct benefits of AdSense is the fact that it is a legitimate advertisement program by Google.

When we talk about making money from a blog, the easiest method of doing so is to put AdSense on your blog and start writing content.

When people click on the AdSense ads posted on your blog, you will earn money. (Remember to avoid clicking on your own ads, as this is a violation of AdSense policies.)

AdSense is a contextual ad network, which means that ads will be displayed according to your content. For example, if you are writing a post on web hosting, you are more likely to see ads related to hosting or domains.

Another way AdSense shows ads is by using the cookie method. Based on user search history, they display targeted ads which convert better.

In short, AdSense makes sure that readers will see targeted ads, and thus you will get more clicks and higher payouts than you will with any other ad network.

Why Google AdSense over other ad networks?

Easy to set up : Once you have an approved AdSense account, all you need to do is add a code to your theme file, and advertisements will start running on your blog.

AdSense means recognition: dSense is one of the most highly rated and recognized advertisement programs available. However, AdSense does not approve all types of blogs, and they are especially likely to reject blogs which are still in need improvement.

Once you have AdSense running on your blog, it means that your blog has been authorized. (This may not be true in all cases.)

One account for all sites : With most ad networks, you need to add all of your sites manually, and upon approval of each individual site, you can place ads on that site. With AdSense, however, once you have an approved AdSense account, you can put ads on any website which complies with the AdSense terms of service. There is no need to set up different accounts for different blogs. You can also use your custom channel to see how your ad slots are performing.

Support forum: Unlike other advertisement programs, AdSense has a wide range of advertisers and publishers. AdSense also has a support forum, and you will find lots of tutorials on how to increase your AdSense revenue.

Payment: The major problem you will face with small advertising companies is the issue of payment. Despite meeting the minimum payout limit, you may have difficulty getting your payment. Furthermore, if you do some research, you will come to realize how many of these companies are fraudulent. AdSense, on the other hand, is very transparent in terms of payment, and you are unlikely to face any issues obtaining your payment from AdSense.

No doubt Google AdSense is one of the best programs for making money online with a blog.  However, for business sites I would suggest saying no to AdSense.

If you have just started using AdSense, I suggest that you install the AdSense Chrome add-on, which will help you to quickly track your AdSense earnings.

There could be many other reasons for selecting AdSense as your advertising network of choice. Use the comments section below to let us know what made you choose AdSense over other advertising networks.

How To Setup AdSense Responsive Ads With Multiple Custom Sizes

How To Setup AdSense Responsive Ads With Multiple Custom Sizes

Google AdSense has officially approved Responsive Design and what that means is you can serve Google ads of varying dimensions corresponding to the viewport size (screen resolution) of the visitor’s device.

AdSense Responsive Ads With Multiple Custom Sizes

You can serve responsive Google AdSense ads in both synchronous as well as asynchronous (non-blocking) fashion. The latter is a more efficient and recommended method as the JavaScript ad code loads in parallel and therefore does not block the other elements of the web page from rendering. In other words, your pages will load faster improving user experience.

How to Generate Responsive AdSense Ads

Open your AdSense dashboard and under My Ads, click “Create new ad unit.” Set Ad Size as “Responsive Ad Unit” and click the “Save and Get Code” button to generate the JavaScript code for your Responsive AdSense ad. The default code is something like this:
<script async src="//"></script>
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

AdSense computes the available width and renders the largest ad that will fit that space. This may not always be the most appropriate approach since the best performing ads are rectangles and skyscrapers and not necessarily the leaderboards.

Responsive AdSense Ads (Another Approach)

Whether you set data-ad-format as “auto” or “vertical” or “horizontal” or vertical, the Google AdSense algorithms will still decide which ad to serve. For instance, if you ask for an rectangle, you may either get a medium rectangle or a large rectangle.

SHould you wish to force AdSense to serve ads of a particular size while staying responsive, you can consider custom-sized ads. The size of these ads is determined based on the screen but the publisher has more control over the banner size that is served.
<div id="google-ads-1"></div>
<script type="text/javascript"> 
    /* Calculate the width of available ad space */
    ad = document.getElementById('google-ads-1');
    if (ad.getBoundingClientRect().width) {
        adWidth = ad.getBoundingClientRect().width; // for modern browsers 
    } else {
        adWidth = ad.offsetWidth; // for old IE 
    /* Replace ca-pub-XXX with your AdSense Publisher ID */ 
    google_ad_client = "ca-pub-XXX";
    /* Replace 1234567890 with the AdSense Ad Slot ID */ 
    google_ad_slot = "1234567890";
    /* Do not change anything after this line */
    if ( adWidth >= 728 )
      google_ad_size = ["728", "90"];  /* Leaderboard 728x90 */
    else if ( adWidth >= 468 )
      google_ad_size = ["468", "60"];  /* Banner (468 x 60) */
    else if ( adWidth >= 336 )
      google_ad_size = ["336", "280"]; /* Large Rectangle (336 x 280) */
    else if ( adWidth >= 300 )
      google_ad_size = ["300", "250"]; /* Medium Rectangle (300 x 250) */
    else if ( adWidth >= 250 )
      google_ad_size = ["250", "250"]; /* Square (250 x 250) */
    else if ( adWidth >= 200 )
      google_ad_size = ["200", "200"]; /* Small Square (200 x 200) */
    else if ( adWidth >= 180 )
      google_ad_size = ["180", "150"]; /* Small Rectangle (180 x 150) */
      google_ad_size = ["125", "125"]; /* Button (125 x 125) */
    document.write (
     '<ins class="adsbygoogle" style="display:inline-block;width:' 
      + google_ad_size[0] + 'px;height:' 
      + google_ad_size[1] + 'px" data-ad-client="' 
      + google_ad_client + '" data-ad-slot="' 
      + google_ad_slot + '"></ins>'
    (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
<script async src="">

Go to your AdSense dashboard and either create a new ad unit or use one of your existing ad units. Make a note of the ID of your ad unit and also your AdSense Publisher ID and paste these values in Line #15 and #18.

Next, copy-paste the above snippet anywhere on your web page and, based on the size of the user’s device, the most appropriate AdSense Ad will be served. If you wish to include multiple responsive AdSense ad units on the same web page, just use the same snippet of code but increment the DIV ID in lines #1 & #6 such that they become google-ads-1, google-ads-2 and so on.

Modifying Data-Ad-Format On Google Adsense

Modifying Data-Ad-Format On Google Adsense

We have a different types ads format (like text or display) and sizes (large, small, medium, mobile) available in Google AdSense program. And there are few most recommended ads format and size. For example. display ads format performs better CTR than text ads, whereas large rectangle ad size performs better CPC than small or square ad size.

Customize Google AdSense

Now with growing technology and people moving towards a mobile-friendly website, making your website or blog mobile friendly and responsive became much important. These responsive web design should also be implemented in Ad network that we use for monetization and help us running. Hence, here are few best methods to improve ads responsiveness without affecting the ads format, size and AdSense policies.

Modifying Data-Ad-Format On Google Adsense – Auto, Rectangle, Horizontal And Vertical.

Responsive AdSense ad code without any modification:

When we create a Responsive Ad code in Google AdSense, we will get a script that needs to be added our blog or website. If you look at the code carefully, you will notice something called as “data-ad-format” which is by default set to auto for any responsive ad.
<script async src="//"></script>
<!-- My Ad Name-->
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Data-ad-format = “auto” means, your AdSense script is responsive and have an ability to adapt any screen resolution. It also means that AdSense has full right to place any kind of ad format and size.

Customize Google AdSense script for a large vertical ad

Large vertical ads are placed generally in a sidebar of blog or website. vertical ad sizes that will be displayed are 300x600px, 120×600 px or 160x600px. Look at below code is customized for large vertical ads.
<script async src="//"></script>
<!-- My Ad Name-->
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If you look at data-ad-format, it is now set to “vertical” that means it will only display vertical ad formats available. Hence, this will improve CTR rate in sidebar section.

Customize Google AdSense ad script for large rectangle ad

If you have good content space about 600px width, then using rectangle ad format is a good option. It will display the ads that will fill your content area space. Recommended ad formats that will be displayed are 336×280, 300×250, etc., most of the time ad space in a content area is filled completely using custom ad size like 600x300px (based on content area width).
<script async src="//"></script>
<!-- My Ad Name-->
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If you look at the above AdSense snippet code, data-ad-format is changed to “rectangle” to display rectangular ad formats.

It is one of the best ad formats that I would suggest implementing. Even we use it below post title and after the article content.

Customize Google AdSense ad script for a horizontal ad

The horizontal ads are placed at header or footer of the website. They will display large horizontal ads like, 728×90, 970×250, 970x90px, and etc.
<script async src="//"></script>
<!-- My Ad Name-->
<ins class="adsbygoogle"
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If you look at the above AdSense snippet code, data-ad-format is modified to “horizontal”.


Now using these optimized (customized) AdSense code, you will be now able to display ads as per your website layout and content width. I would recommend using rectangle format for better performance and CTR.

So this was our guide Modifying Data-Ad-Format On Google Adsense, I hope the methods given above helped you in CUSTOMIZE GOOGLE ADSENSE SCRIPT FOR RESPONSIVE WEBSITE.

Why You Should Not Use AdSense on Your Business Website

Why You Should Not Use AdSense on Your Business Website

Google Adsense is one of the most commonly used advertising platforms in the Internet industry today, with millions of publishers worldwide. Every web property, whether small or large-scale, is making money online with AdSense. Is your web property among them?

I consider AdSense to be “the people’s choice” when it comes to website monetization. Anyone with a unique and interesting site can join this program. A single click can earn anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars, depending on your niche. If you are looking for the easiest and the most profitable pay-per-click ad program, then AdSense is the best.

But wait! See the “No AdSense” in the post title above? Read on to learn why sometimes the better choice is not putting AdSense (or any AdSense alternative) on your business website.

You Should Not Use AdSense on Your Business Website

If you are a novice, and you are planning to build your own online business through a blog or an online web store, you probably intend to insert some Google ads on your site to start earning a living online. While there is nothing wrong with this use of AdSense, there are a few factors that you must consider prior to plunging into the AdSense world.

Why say “no AdSense” for your business website:

Let me explain the basics of AdSense, and why it is the best advertising platform available at this time.

AdSense is a contextual ad network, which means that the ads that  are displayed on the page are relevant to the topic of the post. For example, let’s say you are running a web hosting blog and you are trying to promote your hosting business. To increase your revenue stream you use AdSense, and instead of promoting your own business, you are suddenly inadvertently promoting your competitor’s similar business due to the contextual relationship. This occurs because most of the AdSense ads shown will be relevant to hosting and domain sites, but not only YOUR hosting and domain sites!  So for just a few cents (or a few dollars if you’re lucky) you may be sending away a prospective client from your site.

This not only implies to AdSense, but also to other ad networks such as Infolinks and other similar ad programs that offer contextual advertising.

There are other reasons why it is best not to run AdSense or any other contextual advertisements on your business website.

It devalues your brand

Starting a blog or any type of website is an enticing opportunity to make money from the comfort of your own home. In order to be able to remain competitive, however, you need to take good care of your brand.  Online branding is one of the most important priorities of any good webmaster.

When you start to monetize your site with various types of advertisements, you are also decreasing the value of your own business brand. You are actually cheapening your brand with every AdSense ad you insert on the pages of your site.

You may have seen company websites or sports websites that are using AdSense on their pages. Instead of promoting their own brands they are using AdSense, which is totally unnecessary and very unprofessional.

You are providing an opportunity for your competitors

Once again, because AdSense is a contextual program, the ads it serves are based on your web page content. So if your site is all about technology, cell phones and other cool gadgets, and you use AdSense, AdSense will place advertisements on your web pages for products that are related to the technology industry, and are similar to your own products. Thus you will be providing an opportunity for your business competitors to leverage their brand using the AdWords program – the sister platform of AdSense.

To explain further, a competitor can leverage himself by buying sponsored ads using the AdWords system. By optimizing his campaign through keywords, your competitor can easily reach your site through AdSense with less cost. This can cost you much more money than the cents-per-clicks you would get from AdSense.

So remember, you don’t have complete control over who advertises with AdWords, and this can ultimately hurt your overall online business.

Every click means you have lost a reader and gained a higher bounce rate

A single click on an AdSense ad opens in the same window, not in another browser tab. While the user can easily click the “back” button, the chances of this happening are slim.

For this reason, every click potentially means a lost reader when using AdSense. In addition, AdSense ads may confuse your readers if the ads do not blend well enough with your website’s design.

Every click also means a higher bounce rate for your web business, because your visitor is actually leaving your site once they click an AdSense ad.

In summary, AdSense is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to put up their own website or blog. However, there are certain limitations or boundaries that you should be aware of before using AdSense as your primary monetization program. I suggest that you first build a good reputation and enough content on your site before you start monetizing it with AdSense or any other method such as affiliate marketing or direct advertising. This way you can practically analyze what is the ideal ad program for your particular web business.

When you create a blog or website to promote your online or offline business, my advice is to add your own advertising. For example, you will want to advertise your own services and products, and drive more traffic to your sales and landing pages.

Sometimes it is in your best interest to stop running behind those few-cent clicks, and target a superior branding and reputation of your own business brand.

If you are a business owner, I would like to know what kinds of ads you are running on your website. Are you using any contextual ad networks like AdSense or Chitika, or any other direct advertisement program? Have you removed AdSense from your business website after reading this article?  Feel free to use the comments section below to share your thoughts and experiences.
