Adding an Adsense Account in a Wordpress Website?

Hi Everyone,

I've developed a website using Wordpress instead of Xsite Pro but I can't find whereabouts I go to in the admin area to add my adsense account.

I seem to have trauled through everywhere, but I'm sure it's just me being blind.

If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

Nicola

Wordpress itself doesn't directly help you insert Adsense code into your website.

There are, however, Wordpress Plugins.

You access Plugins from the Wordpress Admin area. Go to "Add New" and you will be met with a search page. If you just search for "adsense" you'll find lots of different plugins that help you out.

Personally I only choose Plugins that have 5 stars. This means other users have tried it, and they're aren't finding anything wrong.
I also tend to choose Plugins that advertise how simple they are. I know some people want lots of options, and to customize it. I just want to get it working with as little effort and learning as possible.

My recommendation is Simple AdSense Insert.
It fulfills my two criteria, and as a bonus it's up to version 1.4 this means they're actively developing it, so if anything happens - like google changes how adsense works - these guys will make sure their Plugin still works.

Hi Jeremy,

Are you sure that simple adsense insert is compatible with the Affiloblueprint theme?

I've installed it however it isn't showing up on the list (under settings). It's showing up on the list of pluggins though......bizare :0

Is it just a gliche?

Hi Nicola, I agree with jmpruitt. If you're building your Affiloblueprint site, it's not recommended to have adsense as it would take people away from your site.

Not only that but most of the Clickbank products dont warrant enough search volume to make good money with Adsense. Some do but you have some keywords that are excellent for Adsense type sites and some that arent.
