    I hope somebody can help. I find googles forums not very user friendly and difficult to use.
    I added a 'privacy notice,' on a page of my blog. Do I have to add 'Privacy notice' Read on page by clicking on this link, on my blog and then link it to the notice on my page? Would appreciate your help.

      I think it is a legal requirement for any website owner.

        Thank you theraggededge, My problem is, have I done it the right way. The 'privacy notice,' is worded the correct way, however, do you put the notice on a separate page of your blog. And then how do I word a small link referring to the page on my blog? I can't imagine that the notice must be on the blog, as it would take up too much space. Am I correct in this?
        Thank you for your reply.

          As long as your readers can get to it easily, either via a tab or a permanent link in the sidebar that should be fine. It should be visible and navigable on every page.

          I publish mine as a page under my 'About' tab. You can take a look by going to my profile and clicking on the little house icon, top right, which will take you to my blog.

            Thank you, I will do that. This has worried me as I know the notice needs to be on all my blogs.

          Anita, when you say a privacy notice will "take up too much space", what do you mean?

          Maybe there's a problem with terminology here. Often, I see people referring to a single article as a "blog".  A "blog" is a collection of articles.  If you're talking about one article on that blog, it's called a "blog post

          So, your blog (that is, your whole blog) needs ONE privacy notice.  That's only one page (not a post) and it doesn't take up much space.  Create a page and put your privacy notice on it.  Then, somewhere on your blog (say, in the sidebar), add a Pages gadget, which will show the link to your Privacy page.

          I think I said this before, but I would strongly advise you to combine all your health-related blogs into one "natural health" blog. Years ago, we were advised to create blogs on specific, narrowly-defined subjects, but that is a very old idea. If someone suggested it to you, they are several years out of date.   A blog needs a LOT of content to be successful, and if your subject is too specific, you'll run out of ideas far too soon.

            Hi Marisa,
            I learned the difference between blogs and blog posts when I landed up with 10 blogs. I then combined five into three of the blogs. However, my Aloe Vera blog I kept separate. I would prefer to have 2 or 3 blogs. I might combine the resveratrol blog with the aloe vera blog. I combined the molasses, fenugreek and soybeans together. The problem is when these are all on one blog, they do not stay together. They go by day posted. So I try to link all the fenugreek ones together, etc. This takes a lot of time. Then I also have recipes and try to link the recipes, so that they are together. It really would not be practical to have just one health blog. I love my aloe blog as I believe aloe is indeed a miracle plant, and its benefits should be shared.
            When I can find no more info on aloe, it can stay just as it is, people will still be able to get the necessary info from it. I will then just add additional research info as it becomes available.
            Thanks for the info on the pg gadget, I noticed the gadget, but was not sure how it works. I will be using it. The privacy notice needs to go on a page as it takes up a lot of space. I have ads from adsense and chitika so it would be taking up space which I use for my ads.
            Thanks for your assistance.

              Anita, they are supposed to go by date posted. That's what a blog is. They began as online diaries. Trying to put several articles into one post is not a good idea. Just post one article on one day, and allow the blog to grow organically. It's fine to write one on aloe vera and then a few weeks later add another one about the same topic. As long as the information/angle is different, it's fine and you can link between the related posts. Having very long articles is not a great idea - information overload puts people off staying on the page.

              People will find the articles via a search engine. So it doesn't matter what order they appear in.

              The privacy info goes on one single page, as you say. Then make sure the link is visible from every post, i.e. in the sidebar.

                Thanks theraggededge,
                I could not find your blog. Will try again. I placed the privacy notice on a page. I just have to add the page gadget. I only do one post a week for every blog. My aloe blog is close to my heart. I do not want a overload. I may combine it with the resveratrol blog. Resveratrol also has amazing health benefits. Since doing research on alternative health I find this subject so interesting. I am just sorry I did not have the knowledge of aloe vera and the amazing benefits of some of the fruits and veggies before my husband died.

                  I have just completed a eBook on Aloe Vera and Folk Remedies. It is only about 7000 words. I combined many of my articles.

              Anita, if you look at the front page of HubPages or any of the niche sites, the subjects are all mixed up.  That's how it's supposed to be, and it's a good thing - it shows the reader that you've got lots of different, useful health information on your blog. 

              All you have to do is what HubPages does - arrange your posts into categories.  On Blogger, categories are called "Labels".   What you do is, edit each of your posts and add a Label.  So, each of your aloe vera posts will have a Label "Aloe Vera".   Then each of your fenugreek posts will have a label "Fenugreek".  And so on.

              Now, add a Labels gadget. A good place to put it is on the "Cross Column" section, which puts your labels along the top of the blog.  You can see how it looks on TimeTraveler2's blog here:

              http://www.rving4newbies.com/

              Each of those headings along the top is a Label (i.e. a category).  Click on one of them and you'll see all the posts with that Label, grouped together. 

              Putting all your subjects on ONE blog has a lot of benefits:

              1.  It makes your blog bigger, and it will be easier to keep adding more posts for longer.  Google doesn't like small blogs, or blogs that aren't updated. If you run out of info for your aloe vera blog, it's likely Google will drop it and you won't get readers any more.

              2.  It keeps the reader on your blog for longer, because it gives them more to browse around.

              3.  It enables you to raise awareness.   You say you want to spread the word on aloe vera, but no one will find your aloe vera blog unless they already know about aloe vera!  Whereas if you have an aloe vera section on a blog about other healthful things, people who have come to the blog to learn about fenugreek or resveratrol will click on the aloe vera Label and discover it.
