To put an Adsense Link Unit Ad. in the header..........

Log in to your Dashboard. Click on your 'Layout' link under your blog name. This takes you to Page Elements under the Template tab. Click on Edit Html. Scroll down in Edit Template field till you come to :

<div id='header-wrapper'>
<b:section class='header' id='header' maxwidgets='2' preferred='yes' showaddelement='yes'>

Change the second line to be the same as the second and third lines above.
Save Template.
Go to Page Elements subtab.
Now you will see in the Header Section an 'Add Page Element' link.
Click on the link and in the popup window choose Html/Javascript.
Paste your Adsense 728 by 15 Ad. Javascript code in Content field.
Save. The Ad. unit is placed above the Title unit.
Click and drag this to below the Title unit.
View blog.

Thanks very much for this hack. It refuses to be dragged below the title unit. But I'm happy with it on top; just wanted to know. You're at the top in my "Must Visit" sites in the side column.

I tried this but can't get it to work a I can't drag the ad unit below the header it just keeps jumping back above the header?

in your description it says
Change the second line to be the same as the second and third lines above.
Is the 3rd line missing?

starfire said...

I don't understand your direction, you said to change the second line to be the same as the second and third lines above. Could you explain for me.

The second line in your header wrapper code will not contain this :

maxwidgets='3' showaddelement='yes'

So copy the code given instead of the second line. OR put these in the second line.

i can't figure out how to get the page element to appear ABOVE the header rather than right on top of it. any ideas?

Anise Ghorbani said...

for some reason, i can't drag the adsense block i put in under the title, i can drag it around, but it won't go under the title! Can someone help me please?

Anise Ghorbani said...

nevermind, i got it to work by removing the "maxwidgets" parameter altogether. Thanks for the great info!

Anise Ghorbani said...

Hey, I was wondering how to center the adsense block in the header? My site is

As you can see, there's no space on the left of the adsense block on the header. In fact, while we're on the subject, how do you center anything? Another example is that little "" box i have at the bottom of the page, how do i center that?

While I'm at it, instead of putting the adsense at the header, how can one go about putting an ad between the 2nd and 3rd posts?

Thanks so much if you can help, I love your site and all the info!

Can you tell me if you can have more than 3 adsense ads?
I want to add adsense to the bottom of each post. I found out how to do it but they are only inserted into the first three posts and all ads on the side are then masked out?
same goes for add on the side if I try for mor than three (small graphic boxes) the rest don't appear.
All I want is a graphic ad on the bottom of each post and a few ads on the side bar.
the site I want it for is

Your Ads. are most effective when they are above the 'fold' which is the viewable area of the blog without having to scroll down.

There is a limit on how many Ads. will appear. See :

Hi Vin, I followed your instruction and able to get the 2nd "Add A Page Element" above the blog title. But when i pasted my google adsense code to the javascript & saved it, the result shows is a blank white long block. Tested at 2 blogs and came out same results. What should I do? Thanks.

Can you share your blog address so we can check it out?

Bruce said...

Hi Vin, I got it, the link doesn't appear immediately, it took few minutes to appear after the setting. Thanks.

vin said...

To Everyone,........

who had difficulty in putting the Adsense link unit above or below the header just put maxwidgets=4 in the header code in the template and save.

This enables you to drag the extra page element to below or above your blog title.
