There are two main ways to add ads to your WordPress website: manually, or using a plugin. The latter option is the more difficult and complicated way. You have to insert the code directly into your theme’s template files or a text widget. However, this method may not work for your site if you have a custom theme. You can use a child theme to customize the layout of your theme to accommodate ads.
Creating an account is easy
Creating an account is easy, as AdSense provides snippets of code you can paste on your site. All you need to do is add the snippet to your site and enable the auto-ads feature in your Ads page. If you don’t want to use a plugin, you can use a theme that already includes AdSense. There are a number of different options you can choose from when setting up your account, including how many links to include on your website.
Snippet of HTML code
To add AdSense to your WordPress site, you need to add a small snippet of HTML code to your header and footer. You can do this by installing the Insert Headers and Footers plugin. The plugin lets you safely insert code into your headers and footers. Once you’ve installed this plugin, simply copy and paste the code into the Customizer. After that, you’ll be able to see the code and choose how it will appear on your site.
Additional CSS option in the Customizer
After you’ve installed AdSense, you must connect your WordPress site to your account. Adding a snippet of code is the first step in setting up a working AdSense account. You must add your WordPress site to your AdSense account by following the instructions provided by Google. Once you’ve added your WordPress site, you need to enable auto-ads by using the Additional CSS option in the Customizer.
Once you’ve added the code, you need to decide where to place the ad. You should use the sidebar for AdSense ads, as it is the most visible part of your WordPress site. Alternatively, you can place the ad in the footer area. This way, your visitors will see the ads in the sidebar. If you’ve placed the ad in the footer, you can add it with the help of a WordPress widget.
When you’ve added the code, you must set the ad placement. The ad should be at the top, on the right side of the page. The ad should be placed between the sidebar and the content. If it’s in the middle of the page, you can place a widget on the sidebar that displays the ads. If the sidebar is not available, you can place the ads in the footer and add a footer.
