Introducing Blogger Stats

Finally, the long awaited Blogspot Blogger stats is finally here!!!

No need to install Sitemeter or any other blog stats in your widgets to track your traffic. Blogger has now adopted the Traffic stats that was first released in July of this year.

Highlight Features:

  • Real-time tracking. Each time your blog is viewed, you can immediately see the changes in stats. Unlike other stat widgets, it's being refreshed from time to time for the updates.
  • Insight about your audience. The blogspot stat will let you know the top search keywords, the countries where your traffic is from, the browser used and many more.
  • Great user interface. It's easy to read and easy to use. If you are familiar in using the Google Analytics, this is somewhat similar when it comes to tracking.

You can see it now running in your blogger accounts.

When you login, you will immediately see the tab on the right most corner option of your blog beside "monetize".

How To Put Adsense At the Bottom of Each Post

Putting Adsense at the bottom of each post in blogspot is easy. It's not that complicated. It is very similar to our post of putting Adsense within the post.

Here's how:

1.Login to your Blogger account.
2.Click Design> Edit HTML.
3.Tick the Expand Widget Templates
4.Find the following code:

<div class="post-footer-line post-footer-line-1"> 
5.And post this code format right below the above format:

<b:if cond="data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;">
6.Click Save

Additional Notes:

What do I mean with “PARSED ADSENSE CODE”? Parsed Adsense code is your Adsense code that has been changed into xml code format. It has to be parsed to function in blogspot because blogspots are xml type of blogs and not php.

To parse your code, simply copy the Adsense code, paste it to this parser tool, and click parse.

Then copy again the new parsed code and that's the one that you are going to paste in your template as seen above.

The code:

<b:if cond="data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;">
is being added so that your Adsense will only appear in every single post, but not in your index pages such category, searches, and main home page.

Remember that you are only allowed to use 3 Adsense ads at a time. And if the Adsense will be seen in your index pages in every post, you will be violating then the terms and conditions of Adsense.

Not to mention that it destroys the beauty of your blog.

Copy As HTML Link Firefox Add-on

Being a blogger, you will have to face the reality that blogging is not an easy task. It takes time to format your post and most of the time, you will have to copy and paste anchor text links. And just imagine if you are making a post and you will have to make around 4-5 anchor text links from other websites. It will really become a pain in the long run.

Today, I will introduce to you a new Firefox Add-on tool that will make this task a lot easier. All you have to do is to install the Add-on.

Once installed, you simply go to the webpage where you want to link. Highlight the words that you want to use, right click and click “Copy as HTML link”, then finally paste it to your post.

To check whether you have installed it correctly, simply open a notepad or any text editor you want, and paste what you just have copied. And you will see a coded text link.

Creates an HTML link to the current page using the selected text and copies it (into the clipboard) for pasting into other applications.
