  1. Dave,

    Thanks very much for the video, I really like them I get a better understand then when it is just in black and white. I would love to see a video in SEO or Adsense



  2. I am a total newbie, I just bought seo elite hope that helps drive some traffic to my site. A video on the basic could be helpful. I have adsence on my site how ever I just feel like I am missing somthing.


  3. Hi Dave, great tutorial, I used it to put a subscribe form up, I had one before but only showed up on my main page, now it is there for all off them. Just what I needed, Thanls Dale

  4. @ Janet You are very welcome Janet πŸ™‚

    @ Rob You mean you want a video on basic SEO?

    @ Dale Great, yeah, your optin in all pages is gonna increase your optins loads. πŸ™‚

  5. Thank you sooo much for thinking about people like myself who are struggling with this kind of problem Dave.

  6. Hey Dave

    Talk about being in the right place at the right time!, ……….this is exactly how I felt when I found your post ……..”How to Add an Optin Form Into Your Blog”

    Although I already had an aweber subscription box on my blog, I had only managed to get it into either the left or right sidebars as you explained. And because i could not do it easily, i just put it off. You know how it is, just one of a hundred things to do ,and not enough time to do it………

    (really, that’s just an excuse for me not knowing how to do it , or trying to find out)

    So using your Excellent Video to guide me, I have now managed to put it just where i wanted it to go.

    thanks again Dave for your help on this one, I really do apreciate it.

    All the best to you

  7. Well i thought it was all OK

    It was Ok when using Firefox, but when i tested on Internet explorer, it was not what i expected, all it done was shove everything in the left sidebar to the bottom of the screen

    I don’t have a Sidebar.php, just a left and right sidebar.php, and placing the code in the left one worked with firefox only

    so i guess the theme is different in some way………

    I know Dan thompson has the same theme, and he’s got subscriber and adsence at the top, perhaps he will be willing to tell me what and where to get it at the top.

  8. Hey Lee,

    Pleased I could help.
    Yeah, it is always a good idea to test in a couple of web browsers as they do differ slightly, but even the slightest differences can mean big changes.

    If you send me your blog login details I will take a look for you if you like. πŸ™‚

  9. Hey Dave

    Thanks for the offer, I stuck with it for an hour or so and eventually got it sorted.

    For the record, Dave’s instructions were 100%, it’s my useless coding that’s the problem. I made the table too wide at 440 pixels, dropped it back to 400 and it now works perfectly in IE

  10. Hello Dave, great blog filled with valuable content indeed.
    Any chance of a video tutorial on “How to Upload Ebooks” to the product? I am pleased with the great product however, I would like to increase its content by uploading more ebooks to it. Thank you from a grateful subscriber. Cheers!

  12. Dave,

    Great tutorial, I was going to do my own video on how to add an opt in form to a WordPress blog, but you nailed it, so I’ve just put a link to your website instead.


  13. Hi Dave

    It only took me 5 months to do it but I finally have the optin on my blog. Hope you like it πŸ™‚

    It’s amazing that it all made sense this time around, I didn’t have a clue first time I watched.

    I still couldn’t have done it without your help, thanks as always for providing excellent content.

    I plan to write a post this week to tell the world how cool you are πŸ™‚

  14. Dave,
    Thanks for the excellent video. You are really a good teacher, it’s so easy to follow your step by step instructions.

    I’d like to know how to add a background color to the blog optin. I have a folder of graphic images of background colors in png files but I don’t know how to use them. Do you have any advice about this?
