1. First, you need to create an ad code. In the publisher dashboard, select ADS CODES and choose the CREATE button. Enter the information that is required to create a banner ad code. Then, click the CREATE AD CODE button.
- Ad Code Name – any name (will not be shown to the targeted user)
- Ad Code Type – choose CPC/CPM/CPA
- Targeting Site – choose your added site
- AdBlock Type – choose Banner Only
- Select AdBlock – for this tutorial, we will select 300×250
- Responsive – Yes
- Sticky Ad code – Unchecked
2. After clicking the CREATE AD CODE button, it will direct you to the next page. Copy all the ad code in the AD DISPLAY CODE and paste it into a note or any Wordpad. You can also change the text and background colour and border type, but save the setting by clicking the UPDATE AD CODE button. Please copy the regenerated ad code again.
3. Go to your blogger dashboard. On the left column, choose Layout and then scroll to the bottom until you see something like ‘sidebar-right-1’. Now, click “Add a Gadget“.
5. Paste the ad code in the Content field. Leave the Title blank and click Save.
6. Your ad widget will reside in your sidebar. It’s up to you to move and drag the widget to the top position, middle or bottom. Our recommendation is to put it on top.

7. Make a line between two paragraphs, preferably between the first and second paragraphs of your post. To make it easier, mark the line by typing “aaaa”.
8. Now click Edit HTML and highlight the “aaaa” text.
9. Overwrite the “aaaa” text by copying and pasting the ad code into it. It should look similar to the image below.
10. Save the post or go back to Compose to continue your write up.
Your first earnings from the ad will appear in your IgniterAds statistics 24 hours after adding the code. This time is needed to build a subscriber list.
