"How Do I Get Comments To Show Below My Blog Post?"

Please note that this only (so far) works with blogs.

If you would like the comments that you get to show below your blog posts instead of having them show on a separate page then what you can do is to go to your dashboard, then:

  • go to the "settings" tab

  • then go to the "comments" tab

  • then scroll down until you get to: Comment Form Placement and check the box "embed(ded) below post"

*Please note that this does not always work and if the comments aren't showing or you are getting feedback from visitors saying that they can not comment on your blog that you should change your settings back to your original setting.

I was looking at another blog and saw that it had an announcements box at the top side of the blog! I thought that this was a cute idea and decided to try it one of my own blogs - this one!

This particular blog is using's older format meaning that I have to go into the html of my template and add the coding for this box manually. (I may get around to updating this blog to's newer format - but not just right now!)

As you can see from my Announcements on the right, I now have a little box where I can put my announcements. You can do this to your own blog where you can add announcements about almost anything! What you are doing, whether or not you will be away for awhile, etc...............

If you are using's newer format then you can add this kind of box by simply adding a new gadget that lets you type in the html coding that will let you have this type of box. You can make the box look different by adding a different color background and adding a different kind of font to use as your text. Personally I think it looks great!

How Do I Paste The Adsense Ads On My Blog?

Generally speaking when you have signed up with and approved by Adsense you go through the process of picking out certain aspects of your adsense ads - ie color, size, etc. However you don't get to pick what specific ads appear on your blog because that will be determined by the content on your blog!.

Once you have gone through the above process of picking out certain aspects of your blog, you will be given the html coding that you are going to have to copy and paste to your blog. WHERE you paste the coding is going to depend on where you want your adsense ads to appear!

So it is very important that you have at least a little knowledge of html coding because if you put that Adsense coding in the wrong place it could mess up your entire blog!

Now if your blog is on then they make it a little easier for you. You can always copy and paste the coding yourself but if you would like to add the adsense ads for you then you have the option of doing it that way AFTER you have given permission to access your Adsense information!

"How Do I Make My Blog More Successful With Adsense?"

Just in case you don't know what adsense is, it is an affiliate-type advertising program where you can earn money online by visitors clicking on the ads that appear on your blog (or website).

For more information about Google's Adsense program you can visit my The Adsense Consultant Blog.

You may not be aware of this but there have been some Adsense Millionaires out there so this just goes to show you that it IS possible to make a lot of money with the Adsense program! You can click here to see one of my more popular blog posts about just how much some people have been making with Google's Adsense program!

But I'm sure the question that you are asking is HOW?

Basically speaking you make money with Adsense when visitors to your site click on the ads that appear on your site. You make MORE money when more people / visitors to your site click on the ads that appear on your site. You make even MORE money when the ads on your site are from higher-paying advertisers.

So the answer seems to be that first you should get as much traffic to your site as possible. (Please see my The SEO Consultant Blog for more information about getting more traffic to your site.

Additionally, you should also try to put in higher-paying keyword content into your site so that it will appeal to the higher-paying advertisers.

Now one of the questions that you may have is "What are the higher-paying keywords?" I offer a high-paying keyword list on my The Adsense Consultant Blog BUT you can find many sites that purport to have high-paying keyword lists available for free and you don't have to pay money for their information.

Just to give you some clue about high-paying keywords it seems that those keywords associated with financial-type things like debt consolidation, student loans, auto insurance, unclaimed money, government grants, current lawsuit litigation topics, etc bring in higher-paying advertisers.
