Privacy Policy on Blogger Blogs  

Monday, September 21, 2009

If you have Adsense on your blog (like I have right at the top of this blog), you need to have a Privacy Policy in place. Google is getting tough on people who display Adsense ads and they have no privacy policy. In some cases, accounts have been banned. At first I didn't even realise we need to have it in place until I read a few horror stories about it.

I know that for us, hobbyists and jewelers, Adsense is there, but we don't even remember it at times, we certainly don't really make money from our Adsense, but what the heck, it's up there, so why not. But if you've earned even one cent from Adsense, Google won't care a bit about the fact that we are not real Adsense earners, we get banned. So if you have ads on your Blogspot blog, add a privacy policy and make it visible on your blog. This is how you do it:

  1. Create a new blog post and while writing your post, click on Post options.
  2. Now change the date of your post to a few months older, so it goes off from your first page
  3. Publish your post
  4. Find your post and copy the hyperlink to your clipboard
  5. Edit your Sidebar widget (or top widget the way I have it), up to you, and add it as a new link. Name it Privacy Policy
  6. Save your widget
That's it really. Let it not be on a small thing that you lose your Adsense account, when all it takes is 2 minutes of your time to fix it.
