Way back I told you guys about Advanced Ads and you guys loved it.
Advanced Ads is a WordPress ad plugin which helps you create, test, manage, display and track different formats/types of Ads on your blog or website. It is one of the few plugins which make Ad management easier.
Many of you would be using AdSense as it is genuinely the best way to monetize your content if you don’t want to get into affiliate marketing and want passive income the easy way.
Advanced Ads comes with a different feature for AdSense users and that’s what I’ll share with you today.
In this post, I’ll show you how to use Advanced Ads to display AdSense Ads on your WordPress blog in 5 steps. This is the best and fastest way I’ve found to start making money from your blog using AdSense Ads.
Before we start this tutorial, you’ll need to have an approved AdSense account. You’ll have to start a blog and apply for AdSense. Then once you get approved you’ll immediately get an AdSense publisher ID.
Install The WP Advanced Ads Plugin
First, go to the Advanced Ads website and download their plugin. It has a free as well as a paid version. While the free version is basic but sufficient, you can not target your visitors and track/test any of your Ads with it.
If you want features like A/B testing and targeting options you’ll need to buy the premium version.
Once you download and install it on your WordPress, activate it and move on to the next step.
Create A New Ad & Connect To AdSense
Go to Advanced Ads settings and click on AdSense settings. In the AdSense, account field enter your publisher ID.
To find your publisher ID login to your AdSense account and go to your accounts and click on account information. Here you’ll find your publisher ID at the top. Copy and paste it in the Advanced Ads and click on connect to AdSense.
Go to the Advanced Ads’ options through your WordPress dashboard and click on Ads. The click on create a new Ad. Scroll bottom to Ads parameters section.
Here you’ll have to enter your Ad slot ID or the Ad code. Ad code can be obtained by going to your Ads section in your AdSense account as shown below:
Paste the code in this screen:
Once you enter the Adsense Ad code you’ll have to click on get details. You’ll immediately notice the Ad slot ID. You can match it by looking into your Adsense Ad area.
Scroll up and publish the Ad you just created.
You’ve successfully completed creating your first AdSense Ad. But there’s still one more thing to do. Placing it on your blog and make it live.
After you click on the publish button you’ll see the next screen asking for Ad placement. You may choose any place where you would like to display the AdSense Ads. I would recommend you to choose inside content as it performs pretty well.
That’s all. The would display on your blog. And if you are unable to see any of them, clear your cache plugin and refresh the page. One of the many reasons you should be Advanced ads is easy management.
You can easily target your ads to a specific section of your audience and generate more revenue based on geo-location targeting. Also, you won’t have to worry about code placements in your PHP files.
