How to add a Cookie Notice to Blogger Sites for EU GDPR Compliance

European Union (EU) GDPR laws require you to give EU visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.

Google now requires you to make a notification for your site.
You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you. If you include functionality from other providers there may be extra information collected from your users. 

  • Google has added the following code option to all bloggers sites. Why is this not a Widget?

    Change this notice, add a SCRIPT tag with 'cookieOptions = {...};' in the HEAD tag with values for any of msg, close, learn and link.

  • So Google has done the work and added a pop-up notice for your blogger website for countries that require it.
Here's an easy way to add cookie notification for sites (force it for all countries).

1. Goto your Blogger Dashboard
2. Choose Layout
3. Add a Gadget

4. Choose and Configure HTML/Javascript Widget
5. Goto to personalize your cookie consent pop-up.

Under "Link to your own policy" use Googles privacy policy

6. Copy Code and paste into Widget

7. Remember to SAVE Arrangement, before you leave the page.
