Wrapping around the post to the ads

After doing some Adsense experimentation, I have come to the conclusion that wrapping around your blog post to the Adsense advertisement generates a higher click thru rate. The use of wider ads like 336 x 280 works best. Blending ads to your background color and removing the borders gives higher click thru rate.

Many readers are asking me, how were you able to wrap around your blog post to the Google advertisement? Simple, just follow the following steps.

First, limit your total number of post on the main page. If you don't use the ads on your sidebar, use 3. Just make sure that you don't go more than the 3 ad units per page. If you have 2 ad units on the sidebar, set it to 1. If you have no other ad units placed anywhere on the main page, set it to 3. Ok? How? Read this.

After setting up the number of posts, go to Settings > Formatting and set Enable Float Alignment to No.

Then, insert the following code on your template just before the <$BlogItemBody$>.

<MainPage>
<table align="right"><tr><td align="left">
YOUR 336 x 280 Adsense Code HERE
</td></tr></table>
</MainPage>
<ItemPage>
<table align="right"><tr><td align="left">
YOUR 336 x 280 Adsense Code HERE
</td></tr></table>
</ItemPage>
<$BlogItemBody$>

Then, republish your blog. If you followed all my instructions, you'll be able to see your 336 x 280 Google Adsense advertisement on the main page and on every permalink page where your blog post wraps around it, just like the one I have right now here at the time of this writing.

That's all folks!

I've been trying this for the past days to no avail. ang hirap sa blogger.

Subukan ko later.. or maybe I should get a pro webhost then use wordpress instead.

Arthur said...

now, to work on ad relevancy.

thanks a lot man i owe you a lot!!

kukote said...

@jepoy... right, 2 or 3 post per main page. pero tama ka, ok din sya sa item pages. usually naman kasi, yung mga old post mo ang mahahalukay ng search engines... kaya maganda rin kung adsense optimized yung item page ;)

@arthur... i've visited your blogs... buti naman at gumagana yung code. =) natuwa tuloy ako. palink exchange na lang po ;) hehehe.

richblogger said...

Luiis said...

hello,
i am having trouble with this. I add the code just like you say but it the ad doesnt wrap around the post. It just stays above it to the right. If you will, please take a look and tell me what I'm doing wrong

kukote said...

@cath cath... thanks for the links, i'll link you too when i update this template. I haven't tried this code with blogger beta, but i think, it will work if it supports backward compatibility. ;)

@luiss... i checked your blog, i think, you forgot to set the Enable Float Alignment to No. Set it and it should be fine.
