Someone left a comment recently asking about the basics of pasting the AdSense code into a blogspot blog.
So for all you newbies out there - here goes.
First - make sure you go to the PAGE ELEMENTS page in your blogger editor. See the screenshot of this on the left.
Notice the bit that says "add page element"
You should now get a pop up window which gives you a range of widgets that you can put on your blog. The next screenshot shows some of these.
The easiest one to use is the AdSense one. Just click this and then give the information that you are asked to give. When you save it this will place your ads on the page ( As long as you have an AdSense account and have given it the right information !)
If you dont like where a widget is on the page you can drag and drop it elsewhere.
I always preferred this method because it gave more control over the ad types but it doesnt really matter.
Dont bother filling in the Title field.
Just copy the ADSense code that you got from your AdSense account and paste it into the box.
Then click save and the widget will go into your template.
Finally save all changes to your template and then view your blog - your ads will now be showing. Dont forget you must have an active AdSense account for this to work - if you dont you wont have any ADSense code to paste!
