As a ‘Title’ you can write Banner or leave it blank (recommended). In the ‘Content’ field you can paste the banner code (pick any of SFIs codes for banners) copied from SFI. Make sure you copy it correctly. If you missed a character your banner will not work. Visit the Marketing Center for all the banners SFI offers for your marketing and promotion. Click SAVE.

After you saved the Banner Gadget you can arrange it on your blog by click and hold it to drag it to the desired spot on your SFI blog.

Congratulations, by now you should have received the 100 VersaPoints as you are done with the task: Install a banner on your personal blog (or website). To check if your banner is installed correctly go to: http://www.blogger.com/home Then click ‘View blog’ and your banner should be there. If it’s not there (and you have done all the steps correctly) then probably you have some of the Adblockers (applications that blocks viewing of banners) so pause it. If you have questions or might there be any missteps please comment below.

    Hi Elzabe,

    Thanks for your comment.
    Your blogpost banners seem to be OK and working perfectly. Dynamic views you have to try out yourself. It didn’t work for me though.
