One blogger asked me about how to add am search box on the right side of blogger title so i think about i share my answer in this post.

In the tricks you can add anything inside your header bar. you can add adsense banner, a search box, social networking button like facebook like, google+, twitter button or add any html widget in header.

For adding Adsense ad, banner ad, search box in to header bar you have to add a new section. A section function as widget show a dashed lined box in the blogger layout and always comes with a add a gadget link. Once you get the add a gadget you can add anything in header. so i here learn about how to add "add a gadget" option to header

1. Add a new gadget section In html

Login your blogger account
click on Templates and Select Edit HTML
First i would recommend you to back up your templates
Make sure the expand widget templates check box is unchecked
Find the below HTML code
<b:section class='header' id='header' maxwidgets='1' showaddelement='no'>
<b:widget id='Header1' locked='true' title='My blog tips (Header)' type='Header'/>
For adding new section insert the below code just right under it...
<b:section id='header-right' showaddelement='yes'/>
<div style='clear: both;'/>
