Summary: Quick look at the News Magazine Blogspot template and how you can customise it to make a perfect AdSense blog
What I love most about AdSense is the ability to earn an online income whilst you blog. There are so many Blogspot templates out there at the moment, it get's so hard to choose! I'm always looking for templates I believe will make earning AdSense a piece of cake. I came across a template and thought I would quickly share it before I go offline. It's called News Magazine (abit of a weird one I know); a preview image of it can be found below and a demo of it can be found here.
So what's so great about this Blogspot template? Initial thoughts, I loved the simplicity of the two-column News Magazine template. I don't know if you've noticed, but your eyes automatically focus on the images on the main page; one of a baseball player and the other an AdSense ad. If you want to make an online income with AdSense, it's essential that people are 100% aware of the advertisements on that page. If their focus is on something else, you will not earn a dime!
If you take a quick look at the bottom sections of each article on the main page, you can see how nicely blended-in the text AdSense units are with the template. Remember, your foremost concern are your visitors; and potential followers there after. In all honesty, nobody likes AdSense ads, especially the obtrusive ones. By blending AdSense effectively with Blogspot templates, you will never need to be concerned about putting off visitors. If anything, obtrusive ads just make you as a person look desperate and your blog look tacky!
One last thing I loved about this particular Blogspot template was the built-in advertisement banner at the top of the page. If you are interested in affiliation, this template is definitely for you! The 480x60 banner can be easily changed in the source code. If your having troubles, use your internet browsers search function and find this piece of code...
<a href='#'><img alt='Advertisement' src='#'/></a>
Change the href section (area denoted #) to a URL you want the image advertisement to link to, and change the src to the URL of the image itself.
With this particular Blogspot template, I would stick to the default AdSense unit colour, there are no changes that need to be made here.
