In today’s article, I will talk about How to install cookie notifications on your blogger’s blog.
What exactly are cookies and how do they work?
Well, it’s not that sweet artery-clogging goodness that grandma whips up in the kitchen we are talking about website cookies which are formally called HTTP cookies.
A cookie is a small piece of data from a specific website that is stored on a user’s computer while they are browsing the web. They can have many functions such as keeping track of users browsing activity to serve up targeted information such as ads for goods or services this is why when you are browsing amazon for a Halloween costume for your dog you might see ads for more dog costumes on facebook later that day. Cookies can also have simple functions like remembering your login details for a specific website such as facebook so that you can close out of it and then reopen it again later without having to log back in again. Cookies can also allow website owners to track exactly how many unique visitors they are getting to their website because each cookie has its unique id so if the user visits the same website two or three times in a day a cookie can allow us to count this as one unique viewer so website owners can collect more accurate data about their website traffic.
Where did the cookie come from and how did it get its name?
Install Cookie Notifications on Blogger
Step by step guide to install cookie notifications on blogger.
To add cookie notification on your blog, we will use a website called Cookie Consent. This website provides the feature of editing notification layout and adjusting it as per our need.
You can visit the Cookie Consent site by clicking here. You will have the home page and need to click on the top menu option called download. By clicking the download you will visit this page:
The first section is the position. We can select the desired position where we want our cookies bar to display.
The 2nd section is the layout. It helps us in choosing layout of our choice for cookie notification. But I will suggest you leave it as it is because they all look quite the same.
The 3rd section is palette. It provides us the different variations of color to customization our notification bar.
learn more Links section is where we are specifically used to send our user to an existing page of our website when they click on it. There are two options.
The next section is the Compliance type. Again, this is also helpful option for the user. There are three available under this option.
However, to do this, you’ll need to make some preliminary changes to your site. So from my point of view, just click on the first one, as I did.
The last section is a custom text. Here we can write the message we want to display the user when the cookies bar is going to appear.
When you have finished the above 6 options we can copy the generated header and body code on the right-hand side one by one and paste it in our blogs Html code. Now go to the blogger.com and click on the theme section on the left-hand sidebar then click on Edit Html.
Now paste the header’s code before the </head> tag like in the image below:
and paste the body’s code before the </body> tag.
Save the theme and refresh your page you will get the cookies notification bar on your website.
