Adsense is one of the best and main mediums for new bloggers to start making money out of their blog. And of course, it the best among its alternatives. But, if you’ve set up your WordPress blog and your Adsense account is approved, now you’re required to put ad codes into your blog pages to start showing ads.
Generally, there’re many ways to put ads on your WordPress blog but in this article, I’ll be discussing only the easiest methods. Being a new blogger, it might be a bit difficult to do it manually by pasting the ad code into your theme files so I would prefer using a plugin to insert Adsense code within your post content in WordPress.
There’re many WordPress plugins out there for adding Adsense ads inside the content, but I chose two of the following plugins that I’ve already tested on my sites.
Insert Adsense Code Within Content Using WP Simple Adsense Insertion
As the name suggests, the WP Simple Adsense Insertion plugin provides the simplest way to insert Adsense ad code within your post content.
This plugin lets you easily and quickly insert Adsense ad code to your WordPress blog’s pages and sidebar using the shortcodes. So, the very first you need to do is install and activate this WordPress plugin in your blog.
There’re two ways to install this plugin; download it from here and upload to install or install directly from your WordPress panel > Plugins > Add New > Search with Plugin name.
Once you’ve installed and activated the WP Simple Adsense Insertion plugin, you’re almost finished adding Adsense code to your WordPress blog wherever you want. Now, navigate to Settings > Adsense Insertion in your WordPress Panel.
Here at the Adsense Insertion page, you’ll see many text fields to paste your Adsense code. So, now login to your Adsense account, copy the ad code from there, and paste it into any of those fields on the Adsense Insertion page.
As you can see in the above picture that every ad insertion box has a shortcode. So, once you’ve added the Adsense code into the field and saved changes, you can put its shortcode anywhere in your WordPress blog to display the ad; either within post content, sidebar, or anywhere you want the Adsense ad to display.
With the WP Simple Adsense Insertion WordPress plugin, you’ll have to insert the shortcodes manually within your post content, sidebars, or wherever you want to place ads. And each time you’ll create a new post, you’ll have to insert shortcodes to display ads.
But, if you want to run Adsense ads automatically on each post at desired positions, you can use WP QUADS Adsense insertion plugin which lets you insert Adsense ads into all your blog posts automatically at once.
Insert Adsense Code Using WP QUADS WordPress Plugin
WP QUADS is another great Adsense insertion WordPress plugin that lets you automatically add Adsense code into all your blog posts at your preferred positions so you won’t have to insert shortcodes every time you create a new blog post.
First of all you need to install and activate this plugin. You can either download this plugin from the WordPress.org plugin page, upload and activate or directly navigate through Plugins > Add New > Search with plugin name, install and activate.
Once it’s installed and activated, go to WP QUADS > Ad Settings from your WordPress dashboard. At the Ad Settings page, click the ADS tab and paste your Adsense codes within Ad fields. I would recommend placing a maximum of 3 ad units per page for a better user experience. Later from the General & Position tab, you can assign them to your preferred position so that they will show at those positions in all the posts automatically.
So, it is all about inserting Adsense ads within the post content of your WordPress blog. Both of these plugins are very helpful so if you like you can install both of these plugins to manage ads on your WordPress website.
