How Can I Place ‘Advertise Here’ Banner On My Blog?

Selling ad spaces on your blog is one of the blog monetization methods you can use in earning money online from your blog. By advertising websites, blogs, businesses etc on your site, you can easily make money online from banner advertising.

There are many advertisers online willing to place banner ads on websites and blogs using direct advertising without third party programs like Google Adwords. Hence, if you are willing to rent an ad space for such advertisers on your blog, you need to add “advertise here” banners to your blog. It can be as simple as having two 125×125 banners in the sidebar or just one 336×280 “Advertise here” banner.

Before placing “Advertise Here” banners on your blog, you should consider creating an “advertise” or “contact” page where you explain how to place ads on your website to advertisers i.e the terms, cost etc. You can check out the advertise page of my blog for ideas.

More so, you must ensure that the width of your blog sidebar is greater than the width of your banner. For example, if you want to place a 336×280 banner on the sidebar, the width of your sidebar must be greater than 336. If you want to place two 125×125 banners lying side by side, the width of your sidebar must be greater than 250 (125 + 125, for two banners).

    • Yes, some of those songs you share their download links on your blog might be the problem. There are some songs that can land you in trouble with Google Adsense especially the non-Nigerian songs.

    • This tutorial explains it. Design the banner, upload, get the link of the banner and the link of the site you want to link it to. Then, follow the instruction in this post on how to write the code. You can also use the Blogger image widget.

  4. sir, i tried it out. But anytime i try to click on the ad space on my blog, it shows "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist."

  5. Thanks my brother but, I am using Notable layout in blogger. How can I paste it in the header and in between the posts?
