Recently, I redesigned the mobile view of ogbongeblog using the blogger mobile template. One of the changes was enabling Addynamo mobile ad unit to appear whenever you view my blog on a small screen especially on opera mini browser.
I decided to do this as an alternative to monetizing my Opera Mini blog’s traffic since Google ads still refuse to be displayed on Opera Mini without using mobstac.
If you are interested in making addynamo adverts to appear on the mobile view of your blogspot blog, follow the steps below:
==> Log in to your ad dynamo account to generate the code for the mobile ad unit.
*** If you want to get the code for “300×50” mobile ad unit, make sure you click the “mobile” tab before clicking the “New Channel” button. You can also try the “300×250” ad unit from the “Web” tab.
==> Log in to your blogger dashboard, go to “Layout” and click on “Add a gadget“.
*** If you want it to appear at the top of your mobile view, add the gadget to the header section. If you want it down the mobile view, add it to the sidebar or footer section.
==> After saving, click the “edit” link under the Addynamo widget. Get the widget ID (eg HTML13) from the URL bar as seen in the screenshot below and take note of it.
==> Go to “Template“. Under “Mobile“, select “Yes. Show mobile template on mobile devices” and choose “Custom” from the “choose mobile template” dropdown box.
==> Save your settings.
Now, we need to activate the Addynamo ad to be displayed on the Blogger mobile view.
==> Go to “Template” > “Edit HTML“
==> Click on the “Jump to Widget” tab and click on the widgetID of the Addynamo unit you added to your blog earlier. This will take you to the code of the widget in your HTML.
==> Add mobile=’yes’ to the line of code as seen in the screenshot below.
==> SAVE your template.
View the mobile view of your blog by adding ?m=1 to your blog address eg www.ogbongeblog.com?m=1 and you should see the Addynamo ad been displayed on the mobile view.
If you want it to display ONLY on the mobile view and not on the desktop view, use mobile=’only’ but if you do this, you will keep seeing an error message anytime you want to re-arrange the widgets on your blog layout.
