How to edit / remove the Attribution Widget from a blogger page

Most if not all blogger templates come with a attribution widget that you are unable to remove however you can edit it although this is limited and you need to know where to look on the HTML template.

When you have completed this simple edit you will be able to remove the widget like all the others.

First search for these lines of code about 3/4 way down the template.

With the older templates all you need to do is to Comment-out the code that displays the Attribution gadget, by putting it inside these characters so it ends up looking like this you must also make sure that you have checked the Expand Widgets Box. Accept it then save the widget.
Then save the template and that is.

In the newer XML all you need to do is to change the locked='true' to read locked='false' this will allow you to remove it should you choose to.

i want to change my blogspot blog template but i m not decide,whos template is best for my website http://goidea.co.cc i want full seo friendly good looking blogger template please help me.


I am using a variation on the 'Simple' template. It is clean and easy to read.

See what you think at http://www.codesingh.com.

I get plenty of hits so from a seo point I think it will be ok. Although I'm not sure if it is fully dependent on the template as Blogger is quite good for seo anyway.

Where in the HTML do I paste the Google Analytics tracking code? I pasted it just before the '[/body]' tag at the end of the template, but the status on the overview page is "Tracking Unknown". I use www.blogger.com. Help?

It'll take 24 to 48 hours for google to start receiving Analytics data from your blogger.com
If you cant wait 24 hours for Google to find it by itself? Follow the steps below to fix it, but please make sure the tracking is already installed correctly like in the image below, before proceeding at all! (Paste the code above body tag) d4b4322.jpg

1)Sign in to Google Analytics and select your site. 2)Find 'Edit' on the end of the bar: 66bfd3e.jpg
3) At the top of the page, on the same line as 'Profile Settings', you'll find something that says 'Tracking Unknown ( Check Status )' e569def.jpg
4)Simply click 'Check Status'; if your tracking javascript is installed, Tracking Status: will turn into something like "Loading" and after a while, it will be successfully tracked!
If not, check your code in blogger.com and try repasting it.
