How To Add Timer For Download Links in Blogger

There are numerous instances on the web where we see the when we want to download something that we are interested in we are presented with timer countdown to the link. And then you wait for the timer countdown to finish before you can see the download link or start the download.

The main benefit of adding a timer before the user begins the download is that as a publisher the bounce rate on your site will decrease and the ads that are displayed on the page will get a good impression from the ad networks.

Step 8: Publish your post after completion.

That's it!. Now try to click on the link in the published post using the blog website.
The link will take you to the page where the user will have to wait for the time you specified and then provide the link to the file saved on the hosting server or Google drive.
