Google Blogging Tip # 69: Setting Up Your Blog Gadgets, Part 26

Adding 'Reactions', a Google Blog Gadget

Currently Google is pushing this Gadget. Many have asked what is it?
'Reactions' is a way of RATING your Google Blog.
You can use the three ratings that Google has or change them to any you want.
Lets get started, here is how you set-up 'Reactions':

1. Sign-in to your Google Blog.
2. Select 'Layouts.'
3. Select 'Page Elements.'
4. Look for - Blog Posts, click on 'Edit.'
5. Check the Box next to 'Reactions.'
6. Select 'Edit' next to Reactions.
7. Use Google Default or Change to your own choices.
8. Save, View Blog, go back make changes as desired.
Note: This change will now appear on all Post, old, current, and new.
See the Pictures Below with explanation captions for further clarification and assistance.

Other Items - I got several more emails about Google AdSense. As I said previously, I am checking out the different methods and styles of Ads. Once I am done testing I will offer some advice on those who have Google AdSense both for Blogs and Web pages. Please be patient.
