Do you run a blogger blog which is controlled by multiple authors ? Are you looking for an idea to share revenue with your co-authors? If so, then this nice Blogger trick solves all your problems.
First, What is Adsense Revenue Sharing ?
Suppose, you're the administrator of a blogger blog which has multiple guest authors. If you want to share the blog revenue with them, normally you divide the total revenue based on the Post count or Page views. But, most of the time it may not be accurate because CPC and CPM varies from post to post depending on the keywords,etc. So, it may not encourage the team members to post more stuff :(
But, with this cool trick, you can share the blog revenue with them more precisely because every author gets his own ad displayed in all the posts he/she does.
So, lets see how to add this feature to your blog..
How to manage Adsense Revenue Sharing Feature in Blogger Blogs
For example, If your blog as 3 authors - John, Ricky and Britney
1. Sign into Blogger » Layout » Edit html
2. Tick the "Expand Widget Templates "
3. You can insert the ad anywhere you want in the post body.. In this example, I'll show you how to add it inside the blog post (between the post title and post body)
Find the following line:
and Paste the below code above that line
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<b:if cond='data:post.author == "John"'>PASTE THE AD CODE OF JOHN HERE
<b:if cond='data:post.author == "Ricky"'>
PASTE THE AD CODE OF RICKY HERE
<b:if cond='data:post.author == "Britney"'>
PASTE THE AD CODE OF BRITNEY HERE
Replace the Names with your Blog authors (Case sensitive)
4. Don't Copy and Paste the Adsense Code directly in the template. First, Go to this Convert Adsense Ad Code Page and paste your adsense code in the box provided and click on "Convert Ad Code".
Now, copy that code and paste it in the template.
(Look at the screenshot below)
and Finally, SAVE THE CHANGES.
From now on, Each member of your blog can monetize their posts with their own adsense ads... Happy Blogging :)
Note: You can use the same hack to put other advertising networks as well.. like adbrite, bidvertiser, etc
