Sometimes bloggers wish to show their ads in small boxes instead of putting a large box of (300x250) which will occupy more space on your home page and will show only one ad. If you put four small boxes instead of the one large then you have the option to put 4 different ads. This can be done via CSS also but we have shown here a very easy way adding via HTML codes. Lets see how it works. here are the steps do it.
Step 1 : Go to Blogger Dashboard and click on "Layout" section.

<th width="126" height="126" align="center"><img src=""/></th>
<td width="126" height="126" align="center"><img src=""/></td>
<td width="126" height="126" align="center"><img src=""/></td>
Note : Here the code with "<th.." is used for columns (here two columns) and  the code with "<td.." is used for rows (here two rows).

Hence we have to acknowledge that WordPress is the best, most used and popular CMS. WordPress won several best CMS awards also. It is much more secured than Google's blogger. These are some reasons for which people are shifting their blogs from Blogger to WordPress because WordPress offers great support from the community. The main advantage using WordPress is that it offers lots of plugins to manage your blog and WordPress is therefor considered as the pioneer in the Blog-sphere.

<body expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass'>
  • Now copy the code in step # 5 and paste it right below the line.

               You'll see some code like the following:

Note : Make Ads Appear Only on Post Pages

Viewers don't like to see more ads on a single page. So, we can hide the ads under post titles on main page. These ads will appear only when users will click the post title and go to the post page. Follow the steps above but after step 8 you have the converted ad code. Ad some more code in that converted code so that it should look like below:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'><script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "ca-pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx";
/* Advertisement */
google_ad_slot = "xxxxxxxxxx";
google_ad_width = 300;
google_ad_height = 250;
<script type="text/javascript"

<style> #related-posts { float : left; width : 540px; margin-top:20px; margin-left : 5px; margin-bottom:20px; font : 11px Verdana; margin-bottom:10px; } #related-posts .widget { list-style-type : none; margin : 5px 0 5px 0; padding : 0; } #related-posts .widget h2, #related-posts h2 { font-size : 20px; font-weight : normal; margin : 5px 7px 0; padding : 0 0 5px; } #related-posts a { text-decoration : none; } #related-posts a:hover { text-decoration : none; } #related-posts ul { border : medium none; margin : 10px; padding : 0; } #related-posts ul li { display : block; background : url("") no-repeat 0 0; margin : 0; padding-top : 0; padding-right : 0; padding-bottom : 1px; padding-left : 21px; margin-bottom : 5px; line-height : 2em; border-bottom:1px dotted #cccccc; } </style> <script src='' type='text/javascript'/>
Now search for <data:post.body/>. In some of the templates this code may look like this
<div class='post-body>
6. Now search for <data:post.body/>. In some of the templates this code may look like this
<div class='post-body>
7. Add the following code just below the code you just searched for.
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<div id="related-posts">
<font face='Arial' size='3'><b>Related Posts : </b></font><font color='#FFFFFF'><b:loop values='data:post.labels' var='label'><><b:if cond='data:label.isLast != "true"'>,</b:if><b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<script expr:src='"/feeds/posts/default/-/" + + "?alt=json-in-script&callback=related_results_labels&max-results=5"' type='text/javascript'/></b:if></b:loop> </font>
<script type='text/javascript'> removeRelatedDuplicates(); printRelatedLabels();
8. Now save your Template and we've done.

You can CUSTOMIZE in order to change the number of maximum related posts being displayed for each label, search for the code below (within the code given in step 7) and change the number "5" to any desired number.
So we have done adding a widget for related posts.

A lot of blogging platforms are available over net for writing your contents. Among all the free blogging platforms, and are the most popular. Most of the beginner bloggers start their blog on blogger/blogspot. Lets know how Blogger got introduced.

In words from :
Blogger was started by a tiny company in San Francisco called Pyra Labs in August of 1999. This was in the midst of the dot-com boom. But we weren't exactly a VC-funded, party-throwing, foosball-in-the-lobby-playing, free-beer-drinking outfit. (Unless it was other people's free beer.)We were three friends, funded by doing annoying contract web projects for big companies, trying to make our own grand entrance onto the Internet landscape. What we were originally trying to do doesn't matter so much now. But while doing it, we created Blogger, more or less on a whim, and thought — Hmmm... that's kinda interesting.Blogger took off, in a small way, and eventually a bigger way, over a couple years. We raised a little money (but stayed small). And then the bust happened, and we ran out of money, and our fun little journey got less fun. We narrowly survived, not all in one piece, but kept the service going the whole time (most days) and started building it back up.Things were going well again in 2002. We had hundreds of thousands of users, though still just a few people. And then something no one expected happened: Google wanted to buy us. Yes, that Google. -

Wikipedia explains as "Generally, the blogs are hosted by Google at a sub-domain of Up until May 1, 2010 Blogger allowed users to publish blogs on other hosts, via FTP. All such blogs had (or still have) to be moved to Google's own servers, with domains other than allowed via Custom URLs. In July of 2011 a news outlet announced that Google intends to change the name of the service from "Blogger" to "Google Blogs," as part of a larger plan to re-brand or retire all non-Google brands in its portfolio of products and services."
             Integration :

  • The Google Toolbar has a feature called "BlogThis!" which allows toolbar users with Blogger accounts to post links directly to their blogs. 
  • "Blogger for Word" is an add-in for Microsoft Word which allows users to save a Microsoft Word Document directly to a Blogger blog, as well as edit their posts both on- and offline. As of January 2007, Google says "Blogger for Word is not currently compatible with the new version of Blogger", and they state no decision has been made about supporting it with the new Blogger. However, Microsoft Office 2007 adds native support for a variety of blogging systems, including Blogger. 
  • Blogger supports Google's AdSense service as a way of generating revenue from running a blog. 
  • Blogger also started integration of Amazon Associates as a service to generate revenue. 
  • Blogger offers multiple author support, making it possible to establish group blogs. 
  • Blogger offers a template editing feature, which allows users to customize the Blogger template. 
  • Google Docs has direct publishing integration to Blogger. 
  • Windows Live Writer, a standalone app of the Windows Live suite, publishes directly to Blogger. 
  • In a version of the service called Blogger in Draft, new features are tested before being released to all users. New features are discussed in the service's.

    Limitations :

  • Blogger has imposed the following limitations on content storage and bandwidth, per user account: 
  • Number of blogs = Unlimited 
  • Size of pages = Individual pages (the main page of a blog or archive pages) are limited to 1 MB 
  • Number of labels = 5,000 unique labels per blog, 20 unique labels per post 
  • Number of pictures (hyperlinked from user's Picasa Web Album) = Up to 1 GB of free storage 
  • Size of pictures = If posted via Blogger Mobile, limited 250 KB per picture; posted pictures are scaled to 800px[citation needed] 
  • Team members (those that can write to a blog) = 100 
  • Stand-Alone Page = Limited to 10 stand-alone pages
By offering a free service has received a lot of appreciation and it keeps growing in its space with introducing various inbuilt tools and options which make blogging easy.
