How to Put an Ad HTML in a Blogger Gadget

By Wendy Piersall, Heather B. Armstrong

The physical process of placing ads in your blog will vary based on the blogging platform you use and your blog template. Blogger blogs make it very easy to include advertising in their gadgets, but you have less control over the overall functionality of your blog.

You can place an ad in a Blogger gadget. Add a new gadget by clicking the Design tab on your Blogger Dashboard. Then follow these steps:

1Click Add a Gadget in the place on-screen where you want your ad to appear.

Doing so places the ad.

2Click the plus sign next to the HTML/JavaScript option.

Click Save.

3Enter your ad HTML or JavaScript code and a title.

When the gadget opens automatically, paste your HTML code in the text area below the title. Add a title that will help you remember what’s in this gadget — this title will also be visible on your blog template.

4Click and drag the gadget to move the ad gadget where the ad should appear.

No further saving is necessary.
