For some odd reason, when I tried to add the Adsense for search box html/javascript code directly into my blogger template xml it would not appear. So I found a really simple hack . I’ve just added a few more screenshots for the xml illiterates (like myself) to make things a lot easier. Here’s the easy way to add adsense for search into your own blogger/blogspot blogs right above the first post, just like I have there!

1. Click on the “Layout” tab in your blogger control panel.

2. Click the “Edit HTML” link.

3. Scroll down until you see showaddelement=’no’

4. Change “no” to yes.

If you click on the “Page Element” link (still inside your “Layout” tab) you will notice “Add a new page element” above your “Blog Post” box has now appeared. Now you can add any page element you want. To add a search box simply choose the html/javascript element and add your code and save. That’s it! Simple huh? Adding an Adsense for search box allows your user to easily search your website while giving you another opportunity to make some more money online!

This is a very useful hack. Can you see my Table of Content? look at my sidebar, click show the table of content — so….what do you think? do you like it?.It helps to hide your big table of contents into a small javascript link which saves lots time n making blog load faster.If you want to put a TOC in your blog so that you readers can easily find the content that they want you can follow the simple steps

I decided to just link you to the original post instead of posting them here because the instruction is very clear and easy to follow but if you have trouble i can still help you. You can change the background color to match your site and the border if you wanted too. Just look at the TOC CSS and look at the background and border and change them to your liking.
