    thanks Muhammad Bro for sharing
    already knew the 2nd method and learnt 1st one that is really helpful to customize our site

    1. that method surely works also buddy. You can surely turn the lock value. I just wanted to share some new ways. I am glad you liked the first method :)

  3. But is it allowed by blogger? Could we get some warning for removing this?

    1. Of course! It is not obligatory to show blogger attribution link because the source of your template already has the attribution credits added by default to header tags that states that blogger is your CMS generator.

  4. The second method is the most used.
    Mohammad , I sent an email to you!

  5. Is it affect on AdSense...after all both are Google's property.
    Nice information.
