Remove Powered By Blogger Attribution Gadget

I will explain how to remove Attribution Gadget aka Powered By Blogger from your blog.
Recently I saw on the net a JavaScript approach, which simply hides this text from your blog, but I don't recommend it.
Why? Because when Google crawler is scanning your blog it thinks you are trying to hide something, and this may affect on your Google page rank.
What I suggest is to remove the Attribution gadget completely.
OK, here how we do it (WARNING! Before you start, save your template in order to be able to restore if something will go wrong. If after editing Blogger warn you about errors then just cancel operation.):

1. Go to Template
Blogger Template Menu

2. Click "Edit HTML" and Expand your Widget Template
Blogger Expand Widget

3. Press Ctrl+F, then your browser Search bar will pop up. Search for Attribution1
   You will see something like this:
Blogger Attribution1 Gadget code

4. Remove this code (everything starting from <b:widget id ='Attribution1' till </b:widget>)
   Click Save, make sure you did no mistakes.

That's it! You will never see this annoying "Powered by Blogger" thing.
If you have any questions, please ask me in the comments section.
