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 are yet to create one for your site,  check out how to create blog privacy policy page tutorials. The video tutorials will show you how to generate content of your blog privacy policy page and how to create the privacy policy page in Blogger.

Once you have created the privacy policy page, view the page in your web browser, copy the url of the page 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.

Cheers.

Thank you so much, the article is very helpful, could be the reason Adsense had not approved me. I will check for more lessons later. Keep on being you, you are appreciated.

Thanks I tried it out but at the final stage. when i clicked save,here is what i got.
"Your HTML cannot be accepted: Closing tag has no matching opening tag: A"

What is the solution.

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.
