4 Ways to Add Google Adsense to Your Wordpress Blog
Many people decide to get a WordPress.org with the intentions of making money in ways they can't with WordPress.com. A WordPress.org blog gives you complete control over your own website allowing you to monetize it and post as many affiliate links as you want which is good for those looking to make a few bucks online. However, when people start their own self-hosted WordPress site they know very little about monetizing their sites, specifically adding Google Adsense. In this article, I will give you 3 very easy ways to add Google Adsense to your own blog.
1. Widgets- The first and potentially easiest way to add Adsense to your blog is via a Text widget. You can easily copy the ad codes of any size or type of ad to this widget which lets you paste HTML. This is great because it puts your ready to use ad in the sidebar.
2. HTML- This is definitely the hardest way to add Google Adsense, but is probably the best. This method allows you to put ads at the top or bottom of posts, or even after the first article on your home page. You will have to go into the HTML editor and a mistake can be very costly, so do this only if you are confident.
3. Themes- It is possible to get themes for your blog that are optimized for Adsense. These themes allow you to put any type of HTML, specifically Google Adsense, in any position allowed as placement varies with each theme. This can also be considered just as easy or even easier than using widgets and the ads can be placed in positions with better click through rates.
4. Plugins- There are many WordPress plugins that help you with getting Adsense ads on your blog. These plugins can have a variety of features from plugins that randomly place your ads throughout your blog while others rotate between other programs like Chitika.
