First, you must have an AdSense account. If you don’t have one, apply to join the program. There are bloggers who have got approved AdSense accounts and they may put referral buttons on their blogs, and you can apply for an account via the referral buttons on their blogs. One of the blog is AdSense Alert (close new window to get back to this page), which also have more details about the AdSense program.
This blog itself is another site. You will first need a site with reasonable content for them to review. The easiest way to get a site is to start a blog. A friend of mine got his application approved with a blog with just one post. There are various ways to earn through AdSense and they are described in this post: How do I earn from Google AdSense (close new window to get back to this page).
You must then generate the scripts for the ads, referral buttons or searchbar. This post describe the way to generate scripts for them: Generating scripts for your AdSense ads, referral buttons and searchbars (close new window to get back to this page).
- Then you will have to add the scripts in the appropriate places in the template depending on where you want them displayed. For Blogger classic templates, see for example these posts:
