Add Google Adsense to Blogger Header (Above the Title)


In some of my last tutorials (Social Media Buttons beside Adsense ads Adsense inside Blogger Header ), you've seen a few tricks for Adsense ads placement that may help you to increase your adsense earnings. Now, I will show you how to add Google Adsense above your header, for instance, just above the title of your Blogger blog. This can be done by adjusting your template to give you the option of adding more than one widget to the header area.

Add a new element to Blogger header


Step 1. From your Blogger Dashboard, go to Template and click on the Edit HTML button (it is recommended to make a backup first - click on the Backup/Restore button on the right side)


Step 2. Click anywhere inside the code area and press the CTRL + F keys to open Blogger' search box:


Step 3. Paste or type the following code inside the search box and hit Enter to find it:
<div id='header-wrapper'>
Note: if you can't find that one, try to find this one instead:
<div class='region-inner header-inner'>
Step 4. Just below one of these lines, you should see this line:
<b:section class='header' id='header' maxwidgets='1' showaddelement='no'>
Step 5. Replace the values in red like in this example:
<b:section class='header' id='header' maxwidgets='3' showaddelement='yes'>
Step 6. Click on the Save Template button to save the changes.

Step 7. Go to Layout (left side) and on the right side you should see a new section that will allow you to add a gadget to the header area

Step 8. Click on Add a Gadget link and select the Google Adsense gadget.

In case you want to add the script of an ad from your AdSense account, choose the HTML/JavaScript gadget and paste the script inside the empty box, then click on Save button.

If you don't know how to create an AdSense ad, please read this tutorial:

Choose the type of ad unit you want. In my example, I added a new Adsense 728x15 ad link unit I thought would look good above the blog title. Color blending is usually done automatically by Blogger according to the color schema of your template but you can choose any other colors.

Step 9. Click on the Save arrangement button on the right side.

Now view your blog to see your new Google Adsense unit. If all is going well, your new AdSense ad unit should appear above your blog's title or logo:

Note: it may take a while for your ads to show if you created an ad unit on your AdSense account

This is a very good Adsense placement that can help you to increase the CTR of your blog.

  6. I advice do not use adsense at all...
    Google adsense is famous fraudster and thief, they wait till accumulate some good money in account and block account. You cannot discuss anything coz robot answer you for apelation, you cannot do anything.

    In my case I have accumulated about USD $2000 and google have stopped account. I never made anything bad, all actions was according to agreement, I suppouse that our competitor made something and account was stopped. But google dont want to discuss it and do not want pay my money accumulated for about 2 years. So googl is thief !
