In one of my posts, I shared with you how to create mobile version of your blogger blog using BloggerTouch app. BloggerTouch doesn’t support Google Adsense integration, hence the reason I searched for an alternative. I found an alternative that supports Google Adsense and I have decided to share it with you. It is not totally FREE like BloggerTouch but you can still enjoy it till you reach the Pageviews limit for the free version. The Alternative am talking about is MOBSTAC.
So, what is MobStac?
Mobstac helps in redirecting your blog page into mobile version automatically if visitors visit your blog from any mobile or tablet device even if the visitor access your blog with Opera Mini.
I am currently using Mobstac to render my blog for mobile viewing because it supports Google Adsense Integration, supports Facebook Comment forms, provides traffic analysis of my mobile blog, allows Facebook users to easily “Like” my blog posts etc
More so, Mobstac allows you to customize your blog Navigation and also offers you the chance to use a custom domain for your mobile blog i.e use your own subdomain like m.yourdomain.com to serve as your Mobstac-powered site.
So, How Do I get Started?
Go to www.mobstac.com and sign up. You can connect with your Facebook account.
Then, check your email for a verification link and click on the link to verify your registration. (Very Important)
So What Next?
Once you have verified your registration, login to the site and you will be presented with your dashboard.
While logged in, go to FAQs and you should see a link on how to add the mobstac plugin to your blog. Something like: “View MobStac plugin installation instructions for: ogbongeblog“. Click on it and follow the instruction.
When adding the sidebar code, make sure you edit the url value in the code with the link to your mobstac profile.
So, How DO I add Google Adsense to my mobile blog?
For you to integrate Google adsense into your mobstac-powered mobile blog, you will need your Adsense Publisher ID.
To get the publisher ID, login to www.google.com/adsense and look up by the top right hand corner. You should see something like pub-xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
That is your Publisher ID. Copy and save it somewhere (including the pub- part).
So, What next?
Go to dashboard, then advertsing. choose “Top/bottom of page”.
Choose “Google Adsense”, then enter your publiser id into the publisher id and channel id boxes. i.e your publisher id is what will be in the channel id box and also the publisher id box.
To view earnings from your mobstac-powered mobile blog, login to www.google.com/adsense and you should see your earnings under “Adsense for mobile content”.
You have to be aware of the fact that Mobstac shares your Adsense revenue with you. You can read more on that here.
NOTE: make sure you set your blog Feed to FULL for this trick to work fine without any “read more” problem. To fix this, Login to Blogger, go to SETTINGS, “Site Feed” and make sure you set “Allow Blog Feed” to FULL.
I hope this helps..
