Add Adsense In the Middle of Posts or Anywhere in Blogger Content

Ad placement and customization has been written and discussed much in the webosphere. In fact, a famous heat map detailing the ideal places for a higher click through rate (CTR) has been floating around for quite a few years now. Then, Google also has a dedicated help section outlining the best positions for ads on blogs, forums, and sites covering the news, classifieds and gaming.

For blogs, an ad unit somewhere in the middle of your post can potentially boost your CTR, especially if its a lengthy post with fewer images. Unfortunately, unlike WordPress which has a number of excellent plugins for injecting ads anywhere in your blog, blogger does not have this options.


But thanks to a simple JavaScript solution developed by adsinthemiddle, you can place your Adsense code within a post - anywhere.

Its worth noting that this method does not, by anyway violate the Adsense policies.

1. To Manually Display Ads In The Middle of Selective or Every Post:


Manually inserting Adsense ads in the middle of posts in blogger is pretty simple, here are two easy steps to do so:

  • Before proceeding, do backup your template as a precaution.

Step 1: On New Blogger (Post Designer Template):

Tick 'Expand Widget Templates' in Blogger console and find <data:post.body/>. Now, replace it with the following code:

<div expr:id='"aim1" + data:post.id'></div>

<div style="clear:both; margin:10px 0">

    <!-- Your adsense code here -->

</div>

<div expr:id='"aim2" + data:post.id'>

    <data:post.body/>

</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
var obj0=document.getElementById("aim1<data:post.id/>");
var obj1=document.getElementById("aim2<data:post.id/>");
var s=obj1.innerHTML;
var r=s.search(/\x3C!-- adsense --\x3E/igm);
if(r>0) {obj0.innerHTML=s.substr(0,r);obj1.innerHTML=s.substr(r+16);}
</script>


Note: In the above code, replace <!-- Your adsense code here --> with your actual Adsense code.

On Old Blogger (Pre-Designer Template):

Find the tag <$BlogItemBody$> and replace it with a parsed copy of the following code:

<div id="prv<$BlogItemNumber$>"></div>

    <div style="clear:both;margin:10px 0">

        <!-- Your AdSense code -->

    </div>

    <div id="fst<$BlogItemNumber$>">

        <$BlogItemBody$>

    </div>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    var obj0=document.getElementById("prv<$BlogItemNumber$>");
    var obj1=document.getElementById("fst<$BlogItemNumber$>");
    var s=obj1.innerHTML;
    var r=s.search(/\x3C!-- adsense --\x3E/igm);
    if(r>0) {obj0.innerHTML=s.substr(0,r);obj1.innerHTML=s.substr(r+16);}
    </script>


Note: Replace <!-- Your adsense code --> with your actual Adsense code.


Step 2:

Now, where ever you wan't your ad unit to appear, put a special comment:

<!-- adsense -->

Done.

2. Adding Featured Posts in the Middle (or anywhere) on your post.


Similarly, using the above code we can add a featured post in the middle of our content.
Earlier, I shared a simple blogger related posts widget. Using the above JavaScript, lets see how we can add that related widget posts in the middle of an article.

The idea remains the same. Just for differentiating, replace the word 'adsense' with 'related' in both, the JavaScript and special comment. Then place the related post code as in the code below:

For instance:

On New Blogger (Post Designer Template):

Tick 'Expand Widget Templates in the Blogger console and find <data:post.body/>. Now, replace it with the following code:


<div expr:id='"aim1" + data:post.id'></div>

<div style="clear:both; margin:10px 0">

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="http://blogger-related-posts.googlecode.com/files/related-posts-widget-1.0.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript">
  relatedPostsWidget({
  'containerSelector':'div.post-body'
  ,'loadingText':'loading...'
 });</script>

</div>

<div expr:id='"aim2" + data:post.id'>

    <data:post.body/>

</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
var obj0=document.getElementById("aim1<data:post.id/>");
var obj1=document.getElementById("aim2<data:post.id/>");
var s=obj1.innerHTML;
var r=s.search(/\x3C!-- related --\x3E/igm);
if(r>0) {obj0.innerHTML=s.substr(0,r);obj1.innerHTML=s.substr(r+16);}
</script>


Step 2:

Now, wherever you want your related posts to appear, put a special comment:

<!-- related -->

Done!

Simple Blogger Related Post Widget Without Thumbnails/Text Links Only

One of the best ways to keep your readers engaged with your blog is to link new posts directly to other related posts that you've previously written or by simply displaying featured or related posts at the end of your article.

To do this you've got the likes of linkwithin, outbrain and nRelate -- all good widgets available for just about any platform. Other than that, for blogger, there's hardly any script available that will properly show related posts at the end of your post (or any other place that you'd like).

If your looking to display text links only, Mike More's related post widget for blogger is the best and simplest you'll find. The script below is version 1.0. The latest version 2.0 can also display post thumbnails and offer plenty of customizations.

The Script: (Blogger Related Post Without Thumbnails):


Add a new Javascript/HTML widget and paste the following:

<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="http://blogger-related-posts.googlecode.com/files/related-posts-widget-1.0.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
relatedPostsWidget({
   'containerSelector':'div.post-body'
   ,'loadingText':'loading...'
});</script>

Note: The widget uses post labels to display related post links. Your recent posts will show up instead, if labels are missing. Make sure you've defined them.

Here's how to add the codes if you prefer:
  1. From your blogger dashboard, click "Layout" on the left panel.
  2. Click "Add a gadget" and scroll down until you see HTML/JavaScript. Open it.
  3. Paste the above codes in the content area there. Save it.

That's it. Your related posts should show up at the bottom of your article. It should help you increase page views and in turn decrease bounce rates - Both positive SEO signals.

Recover an Accidentally Deleted Post on Blogger

While it may take hours to write a lengthy and well thought out blog post, you never know when you accidentally hit the delete button while saving or modifying your work -- And Poof!, all your previous work is gone.

You my have lost a post that was in draft or a previously published one. Fortunately, in both cases you can still recover or retrieve the post that was deleted unintentionally. There are several ways to do so:


Recovering a Post in draft / Unpublished:


If your post was in draft and got deleted, you need to find its URL:
  • Depending on your browser, navigate to the your browser history and start looking for the link to the draft post.

Once you've found, you are most likely to retrieve it.

Recovering a published post:


If your post was published earlier, you have two places to look for:

    1. Search Engine Cache:

All popular search engines maintain the cache of indexed pages. To access the cache of your blog, enter the following and click the cache button right next to the results.

site:yourblogurl.com
For example: site:techmarshal.blogspot.com

    2. Blog Feeds:

If your blog publishes feeds, subscribe to your own feeds using Google Reader (google.com/reader) or any other similar feed readers and recover your post.

Good Luck!
