How to Enable Disqus for Mobile Viewing in Blogger

Disqus is one of the best commenting systems for any kind of blog. It’s beautiful user interface and easy installation features provoking users to choose disqus than other commenting systems. Moreover it filters spam automatically and allows to set customized filters.

Disqus works good until your website is rendered for mobile viewing. When it happens, your website changes its layout automatically suitable for viewing on mobile screens. See the following screenshot of the webpage loaded in computer’s browser and mobile phone’s browser separately.

Webpage loaded in computer’s browser:

webpage-loaded-on-desktop-browser

Webpage loaded on mobile phone’s browser:

webpage-loaded-on-mobile-browser

When the rendering happens, your website may not show up the third party widgets like disqus you have installed on your blog. Forget about the rest of the widgets for now. We need to have disqus loaded on the mobile rendered webpages to0. Because discussions are what that brings value for your articles.

So, how to do it?

Step 1: Sign into your blogger dashboard and go to your blog’s control panel.

Step 2: Go to Template > Edit HTML > Find your disqus widget(Ctrl+F – type ‘disqus’ – hit ‘Enter’).

Step 3: After finding the disqus widget in your code, find the following line corresponding to it(which actually exists right above the highlighted ‘disqus’ words).
<b:widget id='HTML2' locked='false' title='' type='HTML'>

Step 4: Add the following attribute in the line specified above.
mobile='yes'

After adding, it will look something like this:
<b:widget id='HTML2' locked='false' mobile='yes' title='' type='HTML'>

Want to test your blog against mobile viewing?

You don’t need to test your site on your mobile phone now. You can do it on your browser only. You can test your website against mobile viewing right from your web browser on your computer. To do so,

Add /?m=1 at the end of your blog/website’s URL(without quotes) and hit ‘Enter’. Your website would turn into mobile friendly mode right away. Open an article and check if disqus is working for it or not, in mobile compatible mode.

If it's not working, go with the process we’ve discussed above and test it the same way again. This time you’ll see it loading along with the article.

That’s it! you’re done!

Researching for Perfect Keywords Using Google Trends

Google trends is a public web facility to know what’s trending on the internet at present. It is based on the search queries that are typed in the Google search engine from different parts of the world. The number of times a keyword is typed into the search engine is calculated and popularity is measured accordingly. The search trends changes from time to time and no two trends stay in same top position consistently for an hour.

Here is how the current trends are displayed with the approximation of total number of searches in the search engine,


Choosing a perfect keyword for your site is necessary to showcase your business online. Perfect keyword is a word which is used to describe your business at best. Google trends can be used to research perfect keywords for optimization of your website. People search businesses online these days and so keyword optimization plays an important role in SEO.

Using Google Trends in the Keyword Research

To research a keyword that suits best for your business website on Google Trends, open the following link: http://www.google.co.in/trends/ in your web browser. You can see the list of top trending items displayed on the web page.

Scroll down to bottom of the page and you will notice a live-tile-like thing showing up typo-animation of the trending keywords. Click on ‘More Hot Searches’ link under it to see more trending items.

A new page with more trending items is loaded. There you can see a pane with more feasible options to search trending items on the left side.

Click on ‘Explore’ and type in your keywords in the ‘+Add Item’ columns to compare how they are performing in the search.

You can also set constraints to your research to a particular region, time, category and type of search.

The related search queries will be shown below with the more number of trending and rising keywords which can actually be used in the optimization. Let us suppose I entered a keyword, ‘ethical hacking’ in the add item column and hit enter. It shows the list of related incoming search terms as follows:

ethiclahacking keywords
Ethical hacking is the core keyword of the website and the above related search terms are what people mostly search on the internet for. Include these related search keywords in your blog or website, and you would notice improved search rankings of your website links in the search results.

Researching keywords using Google trends is limited. You can only research the core keywords or the most famous ones. You cannot search for related terms related to your brand unless it is quite famous in the internet. After all, brand keyword inclusion helps a little and the core keyword inclusion does the best. Start a little research on the keyword of your blog or website and find your perfect keywords for success.

Understanding the Importance of Ad Placement

Google AdSense is the the secret behind many bloggers idea of starting up a blog. Starting up a blog for making money never works unless you work well on it’s layout. There are some important considerations regarding the layout of the blog you need to take care of.

I recommend you to walk through the following articles before you get to know about Ad placements on your site. The reason why I insist you on reading these articles is that a neatly designed blog would help to place ad units in the right place on the webpage.
Hope you have got an idea about the importance of web design before knowing about Ad placement on your blog. Let’s talk about Ad placement now.

Let’s Begin

So, you have got an AdSense account approved for your blog and I know you didn’t read the guidelines fully yet. Don’t feel embarrassed! no one reads AdSense guidelines completely at once. If you had referred the AdSense guide for ad placement, you would have left with some clues about Ads placement by now.

Ok! let me reveal the clues.

Place ads nearer to the content. Make sure the ads appear along with the content when the page is loaded. Take a look at the screenshot of the Google recommended and not recommended website layouts with ads below:

ad-placement-guide

Let us now try to understand the Google perspective of ad placement.

If suppose an advertiser,  ‘James Bond’ wanted to promote his ‘Bond School’ where he gives training to the secret agents in the world. He would choose to display ads about his school in places where he could get attention of people. If he chooses to place hoardings in a city, he would choose places where he could caught attention of most possible eyes, say movie theatres, market places, shopping malls etc.

The same logic applies here in the case of websites too. Advertisers would like to have their ads shown along with the content so that they could get a glimpse of the visitor at least before he leaves the page. So, he would choose to bid on those ad spaces which are blended along with the content. However, an advertiser would look for conversions not just for visitors attention.

Placing ad units above the fold pushing content to below fold of the page won’t get you highest bidding advertisers as they would be just scrolled down without noticing.

Don’t put them in content overlays – Forget about earnings, you will be banned if you place you ads on content overlays that out focuses the content.

Don’t place multiple ad units in the above fold – Placing multiple ad units in the above fold would reduce the value of ad units at advertisers. Remember that demand-supply concept works here too.

Don’t place them under drop down menus – Placing ads under dropdown menus may lead you to ban. Google wants to monitor the genuine clicks from the visitors but not the one’s you trick them to.

Accidental clicks may not be counted by Google every time and those ad units placed in non-recommended areas might not be recommended to advertisers or might not be considered in paying you.

Be smart while you place ad units on your website. Right placements give you right earnings! All the best!
