How To Add Privacy Policy to Blogger's Attribution

In this tutorial, I am sharing with you how I added a link to my blog's privacy policy page beside the Blogger's attribution in the footer of my blog. You have to include an appropriate privacy policy in your site/blog because it is part of the terms & conditions of Google Adsense. Failure to do so might get you kicked out of the Google Adsense programme and might make Google not to accept your application if you apply for Google Adsense.

Lets's Get Started

If you do not a privacy policy for your blog, go to http://www.serprank.com/privacy-policy-generator/index.php to generate one for your blog by just entering your domain name and email address.

Once you have copied your generated privacy policy into a notepad, go ahead to create a new post, with the title "Privacy Policy". Paste the privacy policy generated into it and publish  it.

View the post in your browser, copy the url of the post and shorten the url using any url shortening service. I use www.goo.gl. Copy the shortened url into a notepad.

Edit the code below with your shortened url:

<a href="SHORTENED URL">Privacy Policy</a> |

Once edited, log in to your Blogger dashboard, go to "Layout" and scroll down to the "Attribution" widget.



Click "edit" and paste the edited code above inside the box.

Click "Save".

View your blog and you should see the privacy policy link beside  the Blogger attribution in the footer of your blog as seen in the picture below:



I hope this helps.

    1. Probably, you didn't enter the the code correctly. Make sure it is in this format " Privacy Policy |" as in the tutorial above and take not of the ".." enclosing the shortened url.
