How to Add Ads Top and Bottom of the Post in Blogger Template

One of the best places where you can add Google AdSense ads on your Blogger blog is header of the post and footer of the post on your Blogger. This will make ads appear above the fold area so that the user will be able to see them without scrolling down.

Placing Google AdSense ads header of the post and footer of the post will also help you to generate more revenue from your Blogger blog as it will increase the click-through rate (CTR) and cost per click (CPC) of the ads.

In order to get good CTR, you need to place ads in the right place, the most visible and eye catchy spots in a blog are header and footer of the post. I have seen rapid increase in the CTR, when the ads were placed in top of the page just below the post title and below of the post.

This tutorial will guide you how to place Google AdSense ads below of the post title (header of the post) and footer of the post (below of the post) on your Blogger blog. let’s first discuss which ad units are most suitable to be used in this place.


Which ad sizes suitable for header and footer of the post?

There are various ad sizes available in Google AdSense. Here we have discussed which ad sizes you can place ads top of the post and below of the post on your Blogger blog –

  • Responsive ads – We recommend you to use responsive ads top of the post and below of the post as they will automatically adjust their size, appearance, and format to fit available ad spaces. Moreover, you can customize the size of responsive ads using CSS.
  • 728×90 ads – 728×90 (also known as leaderboard) ad size will also perform very well top of the post and below of the post on Blogger blog. As this ad size has a small height (90px), so it won’t take much space above the fold area.
  • 300×250 or 360×280 ads – You can also use 300×250 (known as medium rectangle) or 336×280 (known as large rectangle) ad sizes top of the post and below of the post. However, these ad sizes aren’t good for desktop as they won’t fill all the available space.

Once you have selected the ad size as per your needs, go and create a new ad unit in AdSense. Simply,

  1. login to your AdSense dashboard
  2. click Ads » By Ad Unit.
  3. Create new ad unit choose your ad format and create.
  4. Now give it any name and select the ad size. After this, tap the Save and get code” button and then copy the generated ad code and save it somewhere.
