Sometimes, it's just a matter of closing tags that didn't need closing on Old Blogger. I moved a custom template over that was designed for Old Blogger. I did not upgrade and am not reverting to anything. When I tried to add a link, I got the error. In looking through the code, I discovered some bad br tags and fixed them. Still, a problem, which I ended up fixing by adding a / at the end of img codes. I haven't had a problem with it since and it's been nearly 6 months now. The blog still has its custom look, albeit without the new labels and other widgets, no drag and drop layout, but I can live with that. :)

Thank you for this. I though upgrading would be a good thing. And then it wasn't and I thought I was screwed. I hate change. Now I'm back to what I like in the first place.

So thanks for the tip.

Mas Isnaini, saya sdh berhasil upload template Bloggerized Adsense, cuma title, keywords dan discriptionnya kenapa nggak bisa diedit ya? jadi pertanyaan saya:
1. Gimana cara edit meta tags-nya?
2. Saya pernah dengar di forum adsense-id bahwa kata pakar seo disono kaya ujang, pogung dll, pemakaian "read more" tidak search engine friendly ya? googlebot cuma baca yang sebelum read more, sedangkan setelah read more kontennya kagak dibaca. Apa benar?
Kita semua kan tau kalau konten itu penting, dan bila 2/3 tulisan kita nggak dinilai ama googlebot, kan rugi?
Thanks sebelumnya atas jawabannya.
