How To Place Ad Banner Under Header of Blogger Mobile View

In this tutorial, I will explain how to place 300×250 ad banner under header of Blogger mobile view. The banner can be Google adsense ad, an affiliate program banner or a personal advert banner to promote your products and services. So, I expect you have saved the code for the banner somewhere.

You can increase your Adsense earnings by placing a 300×250 ad banner under your blog header section as explained in this post.

To get started, sign in to your Blogger account via
==>  Go to your blog dashboard,click on “Template”.
==> Click the settings icon under “Mobile“, Select “Yes………….”, choose “Custom” and Save.
==> Go back to “Template” > “Edit HTML

==>Use CTRL F to find id=’main’ in the HTML

==> Edit showaddelement to yes and add maxwidgets=’3′ so it becomes similar to the code below:

<b:section class=’main’ id=’main’ maxwidgets=’3′ showaddelement=’yes’>

==> Click “Save Template“.

==> Go to “Layout‘ and you should now be able to add a gadget above the post area as seen in screenshot below.

==> Click the “add a gadget“, select “HTML/Javascript

==> Copy and paste your ad code in it and save.

==> Click the “edit” link next to the gadget

==> Click in the address bar of the gadget window and scroll to the end of the address as seen in the screenshot below:

Take note of the gadget id and close the window. In the screenshot above, the id is HTML1

==> Go to “Template” > “Edit HTML

==> Use CTRL F to find the gadget id in your template
==> Add mobile=’yes’ to it so it becomes similar to the code below

<b:widget id=’HTML1′ locked=’false’ mobile=’yes’ title=” type=’HTML’>

==> Click “Save Template

==> Use CTRL F to find ]]></b:skin>

==> Paste the code below, directly above the ]]></b:skin>

display : none;

@media all and (max-width: 768px)  {

display : block;


Replace the gadget id with yours.
Click ‘Save Template

View your blog on mobile phone and you should see the banner displayed under the header.

I hope this works for you.

NB: If you set it to mobile=’only’, it will be giving you errors while saving arrangements in the layout section.

I really found this post very helpful…most especially the comment about the error issue…..The issue of arranging and saving a gadget in blogger after enabling mobile='yes' give most bloggers problem. Most of keep changing their templates. Only few realize it because of the of the mobile='yes'. A friend of mine once has this issue. he spent days and nights on google trying to find solution. I told him and he was happy to fix it.

    This post on adding banner under blogger mobile view is so timely. Many bloggers have been asking me how to do it. I keep explaining and repeating myself over and over again. But now it just for me to copy this link and always refer them to it.

  6. Thanks for the info. I successfully added a mobile=’yes’ tag to a sidebar widget which now appears at the bottom of my mobile view. However, the symbol “x” now appears under the pages tab (above the main text) on all of my blog pages. Any idea where that comes from or how to get rid of it?
