You might have heard about AdSense friendly or ad friendly Blogger Template. The main feature of these kinds of template is that you can place advertisement on various places within your Blogger template. However there are many good AdSense or advertise friendly template available over the net but all ad friendly template is not good for SEO. Conversely all SEO templates are not good for Advertising.

A Blog can sustain if income flow increase or remain stable. In exchange of hard brain storm a Blogger wants some incentives like income from advertisement. So for boosting up your income you have to optimize your template for displaying advertisement.  

But I would say to make your Blogger template as ad agency or wrap up every inch by ad banner. This is creating negative impact on your Blog visitors mind. So we will place advertisement on those places where readers think that those are a part of your Blog Posts.

The best place for displaying ad banner is below Blog header and above Blog footer. And these two places often remain unutilized by Webmaster. But they can increase their advertisement revenue by 30% with small effort. Rather displaying multiple advertisement focus on ad placement area.  After visiting a website where your eyes get stuck first?

Obviously you will see below header section. Because you will see all posts headline and snippets there. So we will create a ad slot below Blogger headline where Blog visitors will see advertisement easily while read content headline. And secondly ad slot we will create above footer section where Blog readers use page navigation and see advertisement.

<b:section class='banner section' id='banner' maxwidgets='1' showaddelement='yes'/>

  • After placing the above code you have created ad weight container slot below Blog header.
