  2. http://www.submitexpress.com
  3. http://www.submityoursite.com

  • Regular posting
And the final tip for making your traffic relatively good is to post on your site regularly. You should write good, original and considerable contents. The more you write equally more you will have visitors. If you wrote one post a month ago and one another month, then visitors will feel tired of visiting your site and getting nothing. So they will stop visiting your site and your traffic will go eventually down. So the best way of making good traffic is to write best posts.

I think the above steps must be helpful for you. If you follow these steps then surely your traffic will be more than 1000 a day which is a very good starting for beginners and masters to. The above tips also may give your adsense earnings a tremendous uplift. So hurry fast and grab the suggestions.

Excluding Un-necessary Things From Blog Pages

Blogger allows its users to create only twenty pages. These pages are the unique blogger pages for custom customization. We would surely need to load those faster as they supply more advanced information.

If you see in one of our pages from the navigation tab you can see only the header and post. As for other layouts like sidebar and footer is excluded. Thus automatically our page loading will be faster.
See a preview of how a static page would really look like;

Changing The Mouse Cursor

Cursor is the most used thing to give input to computer. Each and every time our eyes are on it. So we can use that attraction for our benefit.
By using a simple CSS code we can change the mouse cursor so whenever others view our blog they will get an attractive cursor instead of the default boring cursor. If you don't believe me, see the live demo of this trick in our test blog.

So you wanna add this to your blog also. If so follow steps below;

1. Get The Cursor;

First of all before you can use your cursor you will need to get one. There are thousands of cursors available in the Internet. If you don't get it see these cursor hosting sites;
Just select one of them and download it. Then host it in image hosting sites like Picasa, Flickr, google,etc. and get the direct link of your cursor. Once you get it you can move on to next step.

2. Implementing The Cursor;

After you got the direct link you can now implement it in your blog;
  • Go to dashboard>Template>Customize>Advanced>Add CSS.
  • Add the below CSS code to your blog.
body, a, a:hover ,a:visited { cursor: url(YourCursorUrl), progress; }
  • In the above code change "YourCursorURL" with the direct link of the cursor you got in step 1.
  • Finally apply it and you are done.

Things To Avoid As Adsense Publisher

Things To Avoid As Adsense PublisherAs we all know what Adsense already is and it's amazing revenues and also of its strict rules and policies.

So in this Adsense world you have to move every step carefully.

Today we shall be discussing the five things to avoid as Adsense publisher. 

These were the things practiced by other publishers which resulted in their suspension. So this article is credited to them;

  • Never Click On Own Ads;

Clicking on your own ads is the most stupid thing to do. Ya it's true that clicking does increase your revenue but if you click on it then Adsense would take it your plot to earn money and so will disable your income.
Many people also request their friends to click on ads. But as Adsense is powered by google itself, so it has plenty of methods to know your plot and so will end up disabling your account.

  • Don't make your ads conjusted;

I had written the top places to get higher CRT but thinking that adding more ads in such places would increase your income is a great stupidity. It is mentioned in Adsense policy itself that only three rich media ads can be kept in a single page. So don't over conjust your ads or your Adsense account is sure to bid a bye.

  • Don't view your site more than needed;

As we know that Adsense provides money for impressions also. So when you view your site more than needed than definitely you will be getting more impressions. This way Adsense might think that you are knowingly doing this to increase your income and so you may be disqualified from Adsense team.

  • Don't Keep Other Ads In your Blog;

There might be other networks you might have joined before joining Adsense. But after getting accepted and implementing ad code it is best to remove your previous ads. There have been rumors of this causing many people to loose their accounts. I am also not sure but what I am trying is just to avoid any risks.

  • Never Use Autohits;

Autohits are severe disease for Adsense. If you have Adsense ads in your site and if you used Autohits for a single time then 100% you will loose your account. So never ever use Autohits in your life. They are for spammers not for us.

  • Never Modify The Codes;
When you get the ad code after creating an Ad unit never modify it. Some people might think to make the appearance of ad more better by modifying the codes, but the fact is that the ad codes are very vital and modifying and implementing the ad code in your blog might cause cancellation of your account.


  • Don't be over confident;

After you are approved don't get over confident that you are one of the sound person around. Over confidence is not useful here so never have it. Post in your blog frequently and do other things around normally and in a steady way.

These are only some primary things to avoid.
Do you know what are other??

Top Five Places On Blog To Add Ads

Top Five Places On Blog To Add AdsYou guys have already known to add ads in blog. But all the places in our blog is not suitable. There are places in blog which are meant for adding codes. Adding ads in other random places might bring a bad impression on the visitors.

So today we shall be discussing the top five places on blog to add the advertisements which receives good attention of people. This would increase your revenue greatly. You may consider adding your ads in these places and watch your revenue grow;
  • Top Header Part;
the most suitable place to add the ads is the top header part just at the right side of the header. This slot gets the maximum attention so adding rich media ads would be beneficial.
  • Sidebar;
Another interesting place in the homepage where visitors glance falls is the sidebar as it is the main navigation tool of your blog. All the widgets are almost added in sidebar. So we can add text/image ads which are bigger in this region.
  • Below Post Title;
As we know that the motive of the visitors is simply to see the posts. While seeing the post their first attraction becomes the top most part of the post. So if we keep an ad below post title then surely our CPC would boost.
  • Below Post;
After completing the post people would visit your downward part of blog. It may not be as effective as others but keeping an add below post is also a good idea.
  • Hot-spot Places;
Apart from other simple places, there might be some places to keep ads. for eg; the ad at the right side of the slideshow in the homepage of this blog is also a hot-spot place.
It is another effective slot to add your ads. This area is glanced by several visitors so just give it s try. You might have your luck work.


To be honest adding ads in these places has really helped. But don't think to add the ads in every places. No it is not so. I strictly recommend to add ads in some places, and mark my words friends, I meant only some places not all OK  Adding more ads in a single page might also lead you to rejection by Adsense. So do it carefully.

Showing Codes Using Syntax Highlighter

Sometimes there is great need to show some codes in tutorials. You can take an example of Blogger Smasher itself. If you are posting posts in tutorials then this sort of tool would come in handy! Before I had posted the tutorial of showing codes. There were much good comments. Normally we have to go at rapid pace in blogger development.
Showing Codes Using Syntax Highlighter

But that was soon removed, as for me I adapted to syntax highlighter. From today I would also like my dear friends to use this amazing tool. For this follow the steps below;

Adding Code;

Before using syntax highlighter, you will need to add the code for it. See below;
  • Go to Dashboard>Template>Edit Html.
  • Then find </body> tag in your template.

<script type='text/javascript'> SyntaxHighlighter.config.bloggerMode = true; SyntaxHighlighter.all();
</script>
<!-- http://bloggersmasher.blogspot.com -->
<!-- syntax highlighter code ends -–>
  • Then save your template.

Using Syntax Highlighter;

After you have added the above code we can now use syntax highlighter. To use it see below;
  • First of all you will need to escape your code which you want to show using this tool.
  • Then copy the code below;
<pre class="brush: js">
Code Here
</pre>
  • In the above code replace "code here" with the code you escaped using the tool.
  • Then copy the whole code and place it in html editor and save it.
Now, you can also see your code highlighted as mine.

Rejected By Adsense, What To Do?


Rejected By Adsense, What To Do?In Adsense world, the number of people who are disapproved exceeds even that of people who get approved. If you are one of those who were disapproved it's no great deal, as there are millions like you.

Let me tell you a thing of past. There was a time before some years when Adsense was a new program; it accepted every sorts of application without reviewing the blog. It's quite amazing ya. But it's the truth. The reason why Adsense adopted strict policies is because of the growing spam and spam.

People stopped to write unique content and rather started to blog solely for money. Eventually the spammers grew and it’s the ultimate truth that adsense doesn’t provide money for nothing. So, the strict rules were adopted. I know that you guys are not just copying contents, but rather write what you know only, but due to the reasons I mentioned above Adsense might disapprove you. If it’s the case then you might consider reading the points below.

The first thing to do after getting rejected is to know that our blog has still some requirements left. Some of the requirements of Adsense are given below;
  • You should have a minimum of 70-80 posts and go on writing.
  • Your posts should consist plenty of quality content.Never make a post consisting images only as Adsense bots read only text.Images are to impress visitors not Adsense.
  • The content in your site should not be matching exactly as another site, as it would be a copy work and Adsense don't like this.
  • You should blog about something that is more different, not the things which are blogged hundreds of times.
  • Your site should get plenty of traffic. To be exact you should get 50+ traffic a day.
  • A blog having high PR is much appreciated by Adsense. So build quality back links.
  • Participation in Google Product Forums can eventually be the reason for your acceptance. So actively participate in Google Forums.

If you have the above requirements then without doubt I assure you that you will be accepted by adsense after you re-apply. But after getting approved don’t do any mistakes or you will have your account disqualified.
Happy Blogging my friends and happy earning with adsense as well...

The Review Process Of Adsense Explained

The Review Process Of Adsense ExplainedThere are thousands of sites who fill up the form for Adsense. Out of them only a few of them get accepted.

The reason for this is the review process of Adsense. Adsense has its own way to review the sites. The review steps of Adsense is divided into three steps. Each steps is done cautiously. They are described below;

1. First step;

The first review process is done by the Adsense bots. These bots are very intelligent machine powered by the ideas of the finest men around. The whole part if your blog is scanned thoroughly in this step. If the site is good and matches with the policy it approved the site and this you receive a mail of confirmation.
If not then you will receive a mail of declination. As the bots are just machines their might be rare cases of acceptance of spam or fake blogs also in this step.

2. Second Step;

After the first review step Adsense requests you to implement the ad code. Unless you implement your ad code the review process would not proceed. After the implementation of ads the second step starts. Here you won't see the ad you kept as it was just to verify you as it's owner.
In this step real people check upon your site. If the site is good your site is accepted and if not you would be tossed aside.
Upon accepting your blog, the ad you implement would show up. As soon as it shows up it is confirmed that you have been accepted in the review process.

3. Third Step;

this step is the never ending review process done by the bots. Even after you start earning revenues your blog is continuously scanned along with all other sites by the bots. It is the safety measure to make sure your site is free of plagiarism now and in future. Even after you start earning money if Adsense bots detects any sort of plagiarism in your blog then they would disqualify you.

So these were the review process of Adsense explained by me. With time running on Adsense would certainly tighten its policy and so would the review process be more strict. So always be honest with Adsense.

How To Apply For Adsense?


How To Apply For Adsense?I had written a post earlier about the Introduction to Adsense. But many people are still having problems applying for Adsense.

If your site matches with their policy then you will get an approval e-mail requesting to implement the ad code. After you implemented the code your blog would be hosting live ad straight from Adsense.

But if your site doesn't comply with their policy then you will get a rejection e-mail from them. In such cases you can re-apply again after improving your blog. This failure gives you a chance to do better next time. Don’t get upset thinking that you failed to qualify adsense review. Some people might even say you will never be approved but the fact is that after improving the blog you would have the approval chance more that what you had at the first point.

Even we are new to Adsense we mustn't follow wrong paths. But as we are a human not a machine some mistakes happens by us. In such condition where to get the correct information. The only solution for this is the Adsense help forum.

Using Post Title Instead Of Old And New Post

You might have see older post and newer post link at the below part of each blog post. They are the links to the post publish a step earlier and later. Actually most of the people don't pay much attention to it as they don't attract much visitors.
But by replacing the old post and new post text with their post titles, remaining the link same, we can attract much more visitors. See a preview below;
Using Post Title Instead Of Old And New Post
This trick surely looks cool, isn't it. After all it's meant to be cool, hehe, just kidding. Now we shall move forward to accomplish this trick. Follow below;

1. Adding Jquery Code;

Before you implement this trick you will need to add a Jquery code. If you have already added this Jquery code while doing other blogger tricks then you don't need to add it again. Just skip it and go for next step. See below for how to add Jquery code;
  • Go to dashboard>Template>Edit Html.
  • Then in your template search for </head> tag and insert the below code just above </head>;
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js">
</script>

2. Adding The JavaScript Code;

This trick is only possible because of Javascript. We will need to add it. Follow below;
  • Go to you template code;dashboard>Template>Edit Html.
  • Then find for </body> tag and paste the below code  just above </body>.
<script type='text/javascript'>
//<![CDATA[
$(document).ready(function(){ 
var newerLink = $("a.blog-pager-newer-link").attr("href"); 
$("a.blog-pager-newer-link").load(newerLink+" .post-title:first", function() { 
var newerLinkTitle = $("a.blog-pager-newer-link").text(); 
$("a.blog-pager-newer-link").text("<< " + newerLinkTitle); 
}); 
var olderLink = $("a.blog-pager-older-link").attr("href"); 
$("a.blog-pager-older-link").load(olderLink+" .post-title:first", function() { 
var olderLinkTitle = $("a.blog-pager-older-link").text(); 
$("a.blog-pager-older-link").text(olderLinkTitle + " >>");//rgt 
}); 
}); 
//]]>
</script>
  • Now click on template and you are done.

3. Styling The Posts Links;

Sometimes it happens that your post name may be a bit more longer than usual, or you may like to change it's colour to suit your taste. If this is the case then;
  • Add the below CSS code to your blog. If you don't know how to add CSS then see this article;
#blog-pager-newer-link  {
font-size:85%;
width:220px;
background:#fafafa;
} 

#blog-pager-older-link {
font-size:85%;

} 
  • You can directly edit the CSS above. Adjust according to your need and save it.

Adding Auto Read More Link With Thumbnail

Adding Auto Read More Link With ThumbnailBefore some days I had published a post regarding blogger jump break feature. But many people had problems so I thought to provide my visitors with a more flexible auto read more link.

But first of all I would like to distinguish it from blogger page break. As we know that blogger jump break requires to be included in each post but auto read more link doesn't requires to place any code while editing your post.

And the most important feature which it has is that it also displays thumbnail which the default jump break doesn't. You just have to add a one time code in your template and you are done.

Just follow the steps below;
  • Go to dashboard>Template>Edit Html.
  • Click on Expand Widget's Template.
  • Then search for </head> tag in your template.
  • After finding this tag, you should copy the below code and paste it just after </head>;
<!-- Auto read more script Start -->
<script type='text/javascript'>
var thumbnail_mode = "yes"; //yes -with thumbnail, no -no thumbnail
summary_noimg = 430; //summary length when no image
summary_img = 340; //summary length when with image
img_thumb_height = 200;
img_thumb_width = 200;
</script>
<script type='text/javascript'>
//<![CDATA[
function removeHtmlTag(strx,chop){ 
 if(strx.indexOf("<")!=-1)
 {
  var s = strx.split("<"); 
  for(var i=0;i<s.length;i++){ 
   if(s[i].indexOf(">")!=-1){ 
    s[i] = s[i].substring(s[i].indexOf(">")+1,s[i].length); 
   } 
  } 
  strx =  s.join(""); 
 }
 chop = (chop < strx.length-1) ? chop : strx.length-2; 
 while(strx.charAt(chop-1)!=' ' && strx.indexOf(' ',chop)!=-1) chop++; 
 strx = strx.substring(0,chop-1); 
 return strx+'...'; 
}

function createSummaryAndThumb(pID){
 var div = document.getElementById(pID);
 var imgtag = "";
 var img = div.getElementsByTagName("img");
 var summ = summary_noimg;
        if(thumbnail_mode == "yes") {
 if(img.length>=1) { 
  imgtag = '<span style="float:left; padding:0px 10px 5px 0px;"><img src="'+img[0].src+'" width="'+img_thumb_width+'px" height="'+img_thumb_height+'px"/></span>';
  summ = summary_img;
 }
 }
 var summary = imgtag + '<div>' + removeHtmlTag(div.innerHTML,summ) + '</div>';
 div.innerHTML = summary;
}
//]]>
</script>
<!-- Auto read more script End -->
  • Now search for this piece of code; <data:post.body/>
  • After finding <data:post.body/> replace it with the below code;
<!-- Auto read more code Start -->
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<data:post.body/>
<b:else/>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<data:post.body/>
<b:else/>
<div expr:id='&quot;summary&quot; + data:post.id'><data:post.body/></div>
<script type='text/javascript'> createSummaryAndThumb(&quot;summary<data:post.id/>&quot;);
</script>
<a class='more' expr:href='data:post.url'>Read more ...</a>
</b:if>
</b:if>
<!-- Auto read more code End -->
  • Finally save your template and you are done.

Some Tweaks;

Here are some tweaks that you can perform in the code;
  1. You may find <data:post.body/> twice or thrice. If it is the case than i strongly recommend you to choose the first one.
  2. You can change the value of "img_thumb_height" and "img_thumb_width" to change the height and width of the thumbnail in pixels respectively.
  3. You can edit the value of "summary_noimg" and "summary_img" to change the number of characters to appear when there is no image and when there is image respectively.
  4. Change "Read more ..." with the text to appear as read more link. For eg:see more>>,get more>>,show more..,etc.
Now, you can see your auto read more link working perfectly in your site. I expect that you will get more improvements. BYE!

Getting To Know Google Adsense

According to Wikipedia,
Google Adsense is a program run by Google Inc. that allows publishers in the Google Network of content sites to serve automatic text, image, video, and rich media adverts that are targeted to site content and audience. These adverts are administered, sorted, and maintained by Google, and they can generate revenue on either a per-click or per-impression basis.
As we already know adsense is a free program run by google, it is a simple way to monetize your site. Like other sites, it displays ads on the publishers site and when ever a visitor of publisher site clicks on the ads on that site google adsense pays that site revenue.

But google adsense has been able to remain in the first position in the advertising networks. Why? Why every one applies for adsense primarily? Why is that adsense has come to be some popular? I know that you all might be facing such queries. Thus today, topic is google adsense. You will be getting your answers to the queries in this post;

  • Advertising In Adsense;

Adsense is a free Monetization programme which ranks first in the PPC (Pay Per Click) company powered by google. Google uses another programme called Adwords as an advertising method. It is due to the only Adwords that supports the foundation of Google. Regarding google as a trustful friend, many people advertise their sites using Adwords. The same advertising is shown by adsense in our blogs.
Thus adsense is only for publishers whereas adwords is only for advertisers.

  • Most Strict And Polite Company;

As we all know that adsense is a publishing programme and people get money by revenue, so it has it's own rules. The policy created by adsense can be read  during the application of form. It would be a very surprising fact that adsense has the most strict rules and policies. No, other company's policy dare to stand against that of adsense.

More over the acceptance and deletion of any account either that 1 century old or 1 day, can be deleted by adsense if it founds a single error. So i warn your friends click your ads a single time and you will be bidding bye to adsense.
But it is not the only thing.

But adsense can be polite at the same time. It has the highest revenue share among all companies. More over the ads it provides is related to the content. So, the ads always matches. Every year on the birthday of adsense it gifts bonuses to it's members. Thus we can conclude that adsense is strict but can be polite at the same time.

  • Highest Paying Company;

As mentioned before, due to the presence of strict rules the advertisers become more lured and always advertise their site with Adwords. Because they know that adsense is strict and even their single money won't go wastage.

This way advertisers get new clients, where as the income of google go on increasing at a rapid pace and also that of it's whole team i.e. adsense,google employs,etc. Thus whole the google related area ultimately develops their earning amount.

  • Most Revalent And Targeted Ads;

The ads appearing on our blogs by adsense is always matching our content. For eg: if my blog is of math then the ads would be of maths related section. This way our blog and ads do not mismatch and we can get much more clicks from our visitors.

But I have seen some programs which always displays ads of some nonsense things that remains same throughout the life and never changes. I meant they changes ever hardly. Even if we enter the correct category, the ads of are different. But for adsense it is completely different. It doesn't prompt to mention any category or section. Instead it scans the content and serves the ads similar to it.

  • More Flexible And Simpler;

Adsense provides it's users with a more flexible and simpler interface. We can get tons of ad types to show in our blog. More over when there are no ads also we can show them by using an alternate site. This is the specialty of adsense. This system can be rarely be seen on other sites.

To sum up in a nutshell, Adsense is a great program that support several people their living. In fact it has been a boon for people to make their dream turn into reality. It has also helped and supported me to live a living I had always dreamt of. So, I personally want to thank Adsense for this.

Advertising can be the best option for getting traffic if you can afford money. There are hundreds of advertising sites like Adwords,clicksor,bidvertiser,etc.. But the one which I recommend for you is Adwords. If affording money is not the problem, then by advertising your site with Adwords for at least 2 years and you can get thousands of clients matching your content. If you like you can use other advertising networks as well.

  • Writing more content;

The most important thing for a blog to succeed is to go on writing continuously. This way you can get lots of traffic automatically. A blog without posts can get no traffic even if you tried your best. So keep on writing content which are free from any violations. And most important thing is that you will need to publish content which are unique and original and that is sure to get plenty of searches.

Now, I certainly believe that your site will get plenty of visits daily which will soon lead over your success as a blogger.
Enjoy with your new visitors. Bye friends!!

Get Rid Of Spam Comments

Today we shall be discussing a comm topic, spam comments. What actually are spam comments? Most of the bloggers don't know this and it's been quite a problem as nowadays there has been many issues in the forums too. So I would rather call this post an discussion and I have a belief that you people will soon comment some suggestions.
First of all let me start from what spam comments really are?

Spam comments are those comments which are not published by normal people. They are comments generated by machines or bots. Spam comments may have advertising links and do not describe what your post actually is. They are not likely to be watched.

Now lets come to the solution of spam comments. You can get rid of those ridiculous spam comments by the following ways;

1. Use Captcha;

Captcha is the probably the most basic and popular way to stop spam comments. By using Captcha while commenting in your blog, the commentators should type an additional verification code given and it is refreshed in every page view. To apply it follow below given steps;
  • Go to dashboard>settings>posts and comment.
  • There below comments sub-heading click on Show Word Verification pull down menu.
  • Select Yes and save the settings and you are done.

2. Disable Comments By Anonymous;

Allowing anonymous to comment would allow people of all sorts to comment without verifying their identity. This way the spam comments would have a big hand and come to our blog in more amount. So we need to disable it.

To disable it follow below steps;

  1. Go to dashboard>settings>posts and comments.
  2. There in below the comment sub-heading click on "registered users" and save the settings.
  3. Now, only registered users including open id are able to comment on your blog.

I hope you guys are guided well.
Happy Blogging without spammers!!

Custom Search Engine Box
It's interesting isn't it. That box searches the content of only my blog so if the people cannot find the tutorials the they can use that is to search fort those tutorials. A very delighting fact is that this search engine uses the same mechanism as google itself as it is powered by blogger. So that we can be assured that the other people will get relevant results. Adding a custom search engine is easy. Just follow the steps below;

  • You will be provided with a form. Fill up with correct credentials;
















  1. In the form you can add multiple sites to search if you want. If not enter your blog URL only.
  2. English is the universal language. So, I suggest you to choose it. But if your blog has readers from a specific country you can choose the language of the country.
  3. After you are done click on "Create" button.
  • After you click on Create you will redirected to the page where you will get your box code.
  • Copy the unique code given among the whole code. That unique code is the code of your search box. Remember, you just need to copy the code like in the above image.

2. Search Box Code;

After you have successfully got the unique code we can move to next step. Now, we will add it in our blog. See the below steps;
  • Copy the given code;
<!-- Search box code Starts --> 
<div style="color:#000000;float:right;margin:2px 8px 0 0 ;">

</form> 
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com/cse/brand?form=cse-search-box&amp;lang=en"></script> 
</div> 
<!-- Search box codes Ends -->
  • In the above code replace;
  1. "http://bloggersmasher.blogspot.com/p/search-results.html" with the URL of your blank page where you want the search results to appear. If you don't have any blank page then create a new page by going to Dashboard>Pages>Create A New Page. Don't write anything there and publish it.

This link is not that important as when it comes the turn of subscription.

Make Blog Pages Printer Friendly

Make Blog Pages Printer FriendlyNormally when you print you blog pages using a printer you will find an awful print. The printer may show un revalent printings.

Thinking it as the mistake of printer is a wrong idea as it has nothing to do with that awful print. The un-necessary stuffs such as ads where appearing and the necessary stuffs were disappeared.

But this problem is not solved, as today we shall be making our blog pages (posts/static pages) printer friendly. We can remove those un-necessary stuffs easily. So, to do it follow below steps;

Adding CSS Code;

We will need to add CSS code to our blog to make it printer friendly. Follow below steps;
  • Go to blogger dashboard>Template>Edit Html.
  • Find <b:include data='blog' name='all-head-content'/> in your template code.
  • Then add the below code just after it;
<style media='print' type='text/css'> #header-wrapper, #header, .header, #sidebar-wrapper, .sidebar, #lower-wrapper, #footer-wrapper, #footer, #credit, .comment-form, .post-footer, #blog-pager, .post-feeds, #backlinks-container, #navbar-section, footer {display: none;} #content-wrapper, #main-wrapper, #main { width: auto !important; overflow: visible !important; float: none !important; color: black; font-size: 12pt; background: white; border: none; } #main a { text-decoration: underline; color: blue; } </style> 
  • I have only added some sections to be excluded. If you want to exclude more sections, if you have any then add them just after "footer" in line 4.
  • Click on save template.

Adding Print Button;

Your blog is already printer friendly. But what if you need to add a print button on your page. If so follow below;
  • Copy the below code;
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<a href="javascript:window.print()"><img border="0" style="margin-right:5px" src="YourImageUrl"/>Print this article</a>
</b:if>
  • In the above code replace "YourImageUrl" with the direct link to your print icon which would appear as a print button
  • After you copied above code paste it where ever you wish, the print button to appear.
I hope this trick worked for you.
Bye Pals!
