How to Add Google AdSense to a WordPress Blog

If you're looking for a simple way to add Google AdSense to your WordPress website, there are several options. You can use in-feed or in-article ads. They are natural looking and can be distinguished from the articles themselves. However, you may have to manually place the ads, which might disappear when you update your theme. Another option is to install a child theme, which allows you to customize your theme's appearance.

The next step is to install the AdSense plugin. This plugin will enable your AdSense ads without requiring you to change the code. However, it will require you to change the configuration settings each time you modify the theme or layout. It also provides a manual placement option. By using manual placement, you have to copy the code from your theme and make changes. Then, you can use this code in multiple sites.

Once installed, you should see ads appearing in your website. To add AdSense to your WordPress website, you can do this by incorporating a widget on your page. You can insert the code in the footer, title, or content of your page.

You can also style the ads using the CSS style property.

The next step is to install the Google AdSense plugin on your website. Go to your WordPress Dashboard and search for “head, footer, and post injections” and then click on “Install and Activate”. You can then paste the ad unit codes into the text widget. You must ensure that the theme allows widgets before installing Google AdSense. The plugin is available in the WordPress App Store. There are other free plugins available that will help you install Google's ads on your WordPress site.

After installing the plugin, you should copy the AdSense code to your WordPress site. After copying the code, you must add the code to your website.

The final step to add Google AdSense to WordPress is to install a Custom HTML Widget. This widget will allow you to insert Google AdSense code within your WordPress blog's widget area. It will be placed in the widget area, which is an ideal location for ads. It can also be added to the sidebar. The Custom HTML Widget is best for Square layouts.
