Now, your blog has to be customized to look like one that makes money.The first thing I do is to revert to classic template.Now don't be carried away with that.The reason why I do this is to be able to place my adsense well since I do not know HTML(that is the programming language of the internet) so much.However,if you understand html very well,you may not do so.To revert to the classic template,simply click on layout/Template,go and click on edit HTML,scroll down the page that opens until you see a link that says "revert to classic template".Click on it and say yes on the small box that comes up.
The next thing to do is to hide the blogger bars of your blog.According to Akin Alabi,the bar makes your blog look unprofessional.To do this,follow the following steps;
1: Log into your account
2: Click on LAYOUT.If you have reverted to classic template,click on TEMPLATE,then click on "edit HTML". When you get there, you'll see lots of codes in the "edit template"box. On the 7th or 8th line of those codes, you'll see
3: Click after and press enter on yourkeyboard.Step
4: Paste the following codes:
5: Click "Save Template"That's it. Check out your blog and the bar must have vanished.
After this,you will have to do a test post on your blog before we can continue.To do this click on "post"type TEST and Publish.
For your blog to be active.---->Now,go to Settings which should consist of 8 tabs.On the tab for "publishing" make sure weblogs is turned onOn the tab for "comments" make sure you turn it to anyone can comment. Click "save settings' after changes in each place.
You will now have to insert adsense to your blog.But before you do that, your blog has to have a post that is relevant to the theme of your website. So,rush down to http://www.ezinearticles.com/ and grab an article that is relevant, short and optimized for your keyword. Post it on your blog neatly.
Now to sign for Google adsense,simpy click on template if you have reverted to classic template.you will see a tab that says "adsense" at the top.Click on it and fill in the required info.Make sure you choose rectangle for the size of the adsense and choose blend template so that the ads will match the backgroundof your blog at the top(You will need to check your email and complete the google registration there.)
Note that it takes 24-48 hours for google to activate your adsensebecause they will have to check your blog before putting ads on it.
You also have to put adsense at the right sidebar of your blog( not compulsory but that what i do). Then Sign in to your adsense account at www.google.com/adsense , Click on "adsense setup",----------> Adsense for content and create the format of the adsense to place on your sidebar.This area might be a little bit tricky.So, ask questions if you can'tunderstand a particular area.------------>Choose skyscrapers and choose background colours and bordercolours that will blend with the colour of your side bar.Copy the Code you will get after the process.
Now go back to the HTML section of your blog,scroll down towards the endtill you see something like thisPlace your cursor at the end,hit ENTER and paste the code you copied from adsense.click "save template settings"Remember,it will take 24-48 hours for Google ads to start displaying.Now,go and view your blog.

In the first lesson we introduce Google Adsense as the easiest way to earn online income without spending a dime, at least not if you did not want to.We also learn that all you need to do is to get a rich content website or a FREE Blog with some amount of traffic(that is people visiting your website or blog ), then apply for a free adsense account, where google will place some small ads on your site thereby making you income on auto pilot if visitors to the site click on the ads.
In this lesson we are going to be discussing creating your blog because it will form the basis of our adsense business. I know you might want to ask me why blog and not a website. Yes, i favoured blog because it is what i use to get result and because blogs are free. And since you are just starting out without big income to start with, it is better to go the way of FREE Blogs.
What is a Blog?
Blogging is a way of collecting links to webpages and sharing thoughts and ideas with people online.Blogs (or Weblogs) are basically online journals or diaries which are great for sharing information and ideas.I call a blog an online journal that is frequently updated.If you understand the concept of keeping a diary, you will understand the concept of blogging.
According to Blogger.com: “A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.”
As well as text, blogs often contain audio, music, images and video.They’re also really easy to make, so you can have one even if you aren’t very technical.Anything can be posted instantly to a blog.
Types of Blog?
There are several blogging platforms but the most common ones are Blogger.com, Wordpress.com, Typepad.com, Reallifelog.com,etcOf all the blogging platforms i am most familiar with Blogger and Wordpress but i favoured Blogger.com because it is what i use to get the most result, it is free and most of all it is easy to use.With Blogger.com to get your blog running you need just 3 Easy steps and in less than 15 minutes you are done and you dont need to be an expert to create a blog.You can start posting to your blog immediately, hope you can see why i favoured Blogger.com.
The 3 Step to creating a Blog with Blogger.com are;
1. Create an account-that is, sign up with blogger.com
2. Name your blog- choose a name based on the niche that you are interested in blogging on
3. Choose a Template- Dont need a knowledge of web designing because you lots of ready made template to choose from.

You can do a test post by clicking on create a new post and write a "welcome to my blog " and click publish, viola your blog is up and running.
