When Bloggers are asked WHY DO YOU BLOG? the first probable answer you might get in response is TO EARN MONEY.Some says IT'S THEIR PASSION, TO EXPRESS & SHARE THOUGHTS and FEELINGS, IMPART THEIR KNOWLEDGE, FAME & PROFILE, or SIMPLY FOR FUN.All of those are arguably accepted but primarily it's because of MONEY -or maybe Not if you're asking a hypocrite then.
People blog to add some income while having fun. - that could be the most accurate answer but still Money comes first before anything else on blogging, even before fun.I suppose, almost every blogger started with blogs of the diary kind but when they first heard of Make Money Through Blogging kind of stuff their blog evolves from a personal-diary-like blog into either an Entertainment or a niche blog perhaps.With the used of an Online Money Making Venture commonly known as Google Adsense they were able to earn while blogging.I'm a firm believer that a blogger with the intent of making money rarely do make much at all.Money alone as your aim isn't healthy.Then you must tie Fun and Money together and other factors as well. In that way you will be compelled to be professional, take care of your readers and do well on  your Adsense earnings.But then again Money is the number one reason of why many blogs are created and why you keep your blog(s) going.
 Adsense is very popular among bloggers and I know it's really hard to earn that much with the platform we(most bloggers) are using (Blogspot); especially on our first couple of weeks on blogging.Blogger(Blogspot) is undeniably the leading free-hosting blogging platform and without any SEO skills everything you've been doing to make money will be unproductive.But I'm not suggesting you to migrate to WP just yet.Why? 
First, It is very obvious that you signed up for Blogger simply because it's totally for FREE!why waste your money with WP(I'm not saying Wp is just a waste, as a matter of fact many probloggers attained success using Wp but there are also those Wp blogs trashed in the dumps).You don't want to end up like that do you?I'm a spendthrift myself but I couldn't afford to buy a domain and host my blog on those exceptionally high-priced hosting sites-instead I'm taking(using blogspot) this as a challenge.No matter what I'm gonna end up with -I won't regret any in terms of money.
Second BLOGGING PLATFORM doesn't really matter!! IT'S YOU.If you're being discouraged by the phrase "You can never make money with Blogger " then think again.It's not  just the blogging platform 
that makes money, IT'S YOU (well, don't take it literally).It's undeniably you the whole time.All you need is some motivation and focus.
Last,THERE ARE SO MUCH WORLD TO SEE IN BLOGGER! Well, you could word it that way but I'm really talking about the ALTERNATIVES we Blogspot users can learn,take advantage of and be proud of.Of course, you must have SEO skills or some in order to maneuver these alternatives.Allow me to introduce to you BLOGGER HACKS -some says the advantage of Wp is that it has Plug-ins that allows your Adsense - Click Through Rate up.It might sound complicated but you can certainly get your CTR Up ! only that it doesn't come in the form of Plug-ins nor in the form of Widgets -It's IN THE FORM OF CODES.If you're a web enthusiast and familiar with Blogger  you can take advantage of and learn from this and if in case you're not! Don't worry this won't be as unnerving as you expects it to be.As a matter of fact you will just have to search for a particualar code on your html template (which may depend on the kind of hack) and replace it with a new set of codes.Sounds easy right?Let's start it with the most powerful Blogger hack that'll boost up your Adsense Earnings!
Placing Google Adsense Inside the Post on Blogger
The Ad placement matters the most -Place your Adsense ads on areas where they can be easily seen, like on top or below the posts title in that way, you will be giving your ads more exposure, thereby increasing click potentials.But flaunting your Ads also has a disadvantage.It can only generate clicks when your readers are interested and this may depend on the ads relevance to what you have written.So therefore, I'm suggesting you to blend it with your theme -some people will think the ads are links part of your article,this means more chance of misclicks.
In blogger,when you're using Adsense as a widget and you chose the option SHOW ADS BETWEEN POST the default position of your advertisements are place below the post or worse below the post line footer.And it isn't always a good place for a good result in terms of revenue so with the Help of the Blogger Hack Antonio Lupetti articlulated you can now place the ad on top of your post below your post title.Eureka! Below you can see the suspect code you can find in the post's footer.
<b:if cond="'data:post.includeAd'">
<data:adend/>
<data:adcode/>
<data:adstart/>
</b:if>

The suspect code led to the discovery that you can actually play with the ad placements.Thanks to Antonio.

Now to PLACE ADSENSE inside your post!Simply follow these steps:

  1. Choose SHOW ADS BETWEEN POST on your Adsense Widget.
  2. Go to Layout -> Edit HTML and check the box on the upper right side.
  3.  Now press CTRL + F and find this code: 







    <p><data:post.body/></p>
    4. After locating, place this set of codes before the code above:








    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType=="item"'>
    <b:if cond="'data:post.includeAd'">
    <data:adend/>
    <data:adcode/>
    <data:adstart/>
    </b:if>
    </b:if>
5. This time, let's do it my way -it's not that Eureka! though but as I was experimenting(say playing) with the adsense codes above I happen to place it exaclty below the article.And that's one of the best places where you can add an Ad.Below the article before the Related Posts.

Simply place this code:


<b:if cond="'data:post.includeAd'">
<data:adend/>
<data:adcode/>
<data:adstart/>
</b:if>


inside the code: <p><data:post.body/></p> before  </p>.

Now you're all set up with this blogspot hack! You might as well improve your number of clicks and CTR like mine!
