Add Your Hubpages Widget And Other Gadgets To Your Blogs On Blogger - Tips For Hubbers And Bloggers
My Hubpages Widget Added To Blogger
Some General Information About The HubPages Widget
Hubpages provides us with a personal profile widget that can be added to one's websites or blogs. Adding this widget is a great way to get increased traffic to your other hubs, blogs and website. Also, it is a great way to showcase your best, hot or latest hubs.
Not only can the reader sort between the different categories of hubs but clicking on the more button will take the reader to your profile page on Hubpages.
Additionally, clicking on Hubpages on the widget, will take the reader to the sign up page. An added bonus is the facility of adding the referral tracker of your choice to the widget so that if any reader signs up through clicking of this widget you can earn from their subsequent hubs.
I will now show you how your hubpages profile widget is to be added to your blog on blogger. The following example uses my blog on blogger.
My Lifestyle Blog Before Adding My HubPages Widget
As you can see above my blog 'Lifestyle' does not have my hubpages widget. I will be putting my hubpages widget at the place marked in the red circle at the top right.
To start I go to my profile page and click on the 'add rajan jolly's widget to your website' link. See image 1, circled in red.
Clicking the link opens my hubpages widget page as in image 2 above. From the drop down box at the top (marked 1 in red), select the referral tracker of your choice. Then go down to where the HTML is (marked 2) and copy it.
To the far right is the widget (marked 3) that will be put on my blog.
On this page, you also have the option to select the width & height of the widget to be put but I found the default size to be just right.
I log in to my blogger account and go the the main dashboard, as in image 3 above.
I will be putting my widget on my lifestyle blog (the blog heading this list and circled in red), as seen in image 3 above.
Clicking on 'Lifestyle' on the main dashboard opens up the 'Lifestyle' dashboard as shown in image 4 above.
To the left is a list. I go down the list till I see the button marked 'Layout' (circled in red) in image 4.
Clicking on the layout button opens up the layout page as shown in image 5. On this page to the right, is the 'Add a gadget' button (circled in red) as in image 5 above.
I click this button to open up the 'Add a gadget box' which is a big box that opens up separate from the layout page and has number of gadgets listed as you can see if you scroll down. See image 6 below.
In this box I type "Rajan Jolly On Hubpages" in the title box and in the content box I paste my HTML code. See in the image 8 above, as circled in red. I click the save button.
Clicking the save button has opened up the Lifestyle layout page again, On the right side where previously I had clicked the Add Gadget button, I can now see that my widget button has been added. See the red circled area on this page as in image 9.
Now click on save arrangement button located at the top right and circled in red in image 9.
Now I go back to my lifestyle blog and you now see that my hubpages widget has been added to this page as in image 10 and circled in red.
As you can see I have 6 posts under my Lifestyle blog. See image 11.
Adding the widget once to the main blog (not the individual posts) will add this widget to all the posts under that blog. As examples you can see images 12 & 13 2 different posts under the Lifestyle blog both having my hubpages widget put on them.
Though the entire procedure looks daunting at first, it is a breeze once you do it. Go for it and enjoy more traffic to your hubs and blogs. Good luck.
