How to show adsense below the post title in your blogger hosted blog only on inner pages except on home page?

by Ankur Jain on January 16, 2009

Adsense below the post title is known to give good CTR(Click-Through-Ratio). Here is how you can add adsense ads below every post title, only on inner pages and except the home page of your blog. [Yes, in a safe way!]

  1. Go to Dashboard > Edit HTML.
  2. Click on ‘Expand Widget Templates’.
    expand-widget-templates
  3. Search for <div class=’post-body’> and place your adsense code below this line.
  4. This is the most important step. Inside your adsense code’s <script type=’text/javascript’> and </script> , replace every occurrence of
    • < with &lt;
    • > with &gt;
    • with &quot;
  5. You should NOT change the < and > around script type=’text/javascript’ and /script.
  6. To show your adsense only on the inner pages and not on home page, add <b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;’> before the adsense code and </b:if> after the adsense code. You can also add <center> tags to center align your ads.
  7. The final code should look like this.
    adsense-code

Regarding code changes that I have done, no need to worry about Adsense TOS violation. I have asked my Google adsense representative and according to her as long as any page’s source shows the same code as you copied from adsense account there is no problem. You can verify this by going to your page where you have put adsense. Right click and View Source (in IE) and View Page Source (In Firefox). Of course if you want to double verify this, you can always check with your adsense rep.

For those interested in testing and knowing which ad unit would perform best for them, can refer this excellent post on A/B testing from official adsense blog.

Nice trick. but I’ve a suggestion, you should place the code example in text format instead of image so that we can easily copy the code and modify that.
Thanks for the rest.

@Row Thanks,
But as you know that Adsense Policy didn’t allow us to modify the Adsense Code in anyway. In such a case how will the above modification will react with the Adsense Policies. Any solution instead of that.

@Mohit: If you check the second last para above, I have clarified this with adsense reps and they are ok with it. There is no code change when the page finally renders inside your browser.

I already installed the ads but i really need help in putting the “sponsored links” or the “advertisement” text on top of the ads. Also, how can I limit the ads to just only to the first two posts. There’s a large gap between the title and the body after the first two posts. Thanks
