Add Adsense to Your WordPress Blog and Make Money
Posted November 20, 2009on:
Unfotunately this cannot yet be done on WordPress Hosted Blogs but if you host your own blog (not at example.wordpress.com) then you can use the following plugins:
Easier than directly adding them in yourself. And is how to make money free from your wordpress blog.
Adsense Deluxe – probably the most popular and perhaps the best AdSense plugin out there, AdSense Deluxe lets you automatically insert ads (it works with Yahoo ads, too) into your posts or pages. Very configurable and yet simple to use. (at the time of this writing, the official link for this plugin is dead. Hopefully, it’s just temporary.)
AdSense Widget for WordPress Sidebar – Add AdSense to your WordPress sidebar in the form of a widget.
Shylock AdSense – another plugin for easy integration of AdSense ads into your blog; has an interesting feature that lets you set particular ads into blog posts which are more than X days old.
Adsense Injection – random Adsense injection into your blog.
AdMan – integrates ads directly inside your blog posts. Compatible with AdSense.
AdSense Manager – a fully featured AdSense manager. Use the latest version only, as older versions had some issues with the AdSense terms and conditions.
AdRotator – afraid of adblindness? AdRotator rotates (doh!) your AdSense ads, and combines them with other advertising programs.
AdSense Attachment – display extra content, like images, in a new page together with AdSense ads.
MightyAdsense – display AdSense ads without modifying the templates. Has a preview for ads in the WordPress control panel.
Google Ad Wrap – show that pesky Google spider what content on your blog is really important
Adsense Inline – another plugin that makes inserting AdSense into your blog posts really easy.
Adsense Beautifier – places images next to your AdSense ads, which should increase the clickthrough rate. Be very careful with this one, as there’s some controversy over whether this violates the AdSense T&C.
Author Adsense – split revenue between several blog authors on the same blog.
AdSense Sharing Revenue and Earnings System – another revenue sharing plugin for AdSense on WordPress. Also shows you your earnings in real time.
Adsense Earnings WordPress Plugin – always be in control of your AdSense earnings, right from the WordPress Admin panel.
WP-AdsenseProfit – another plugin that shows you your AdSense earnings in real time
The Top Adsense Plugins for WordPress
Adsense and WordPress work together in perfect harmony – these are the top adsense plugins suited for your website.
Adsense Injection – This adsense plugin injects adsense wherever you choose, using a code (once you set your publisher ID up) and injecting adsense wherever you want it in a post, using the tag <!–adsense–>, you can set up multiple styles, so setting up a few different looking ads with size and color schemes are integrated and called by using a unique code – for example <!–adsense4–> or whatever you choose to call it.
Adsense WP Widget – A quick and easy solution to creating an Adsense block to display on every page in your sidebar widgets (near your blogroll, etc). This plugin costs $1USD, don’t really know why, but hey – depending on your traffic you could make that back in a day.
Adsense Deluxe – This bad boy offers some unique options to manage automated insertion of your Adsense, and even your Yahoo feed. It has universal control to change your Adsense color scheme across your entire site.
Adsense Earnings – This plugin is incredibly useful if you aren’t logged into your Google adsense account. This is useful for folks like me, logged into Gmail from another account, and then logging into Adsense with another… which logs me out of email most of the time. This plugin shows your daily earnings, and overall CTR of the site.
Shylock – This is another really uniquely designed Adsense plugin. This will swap the targetted keywords to higher-paying ones on posts older than X days, weeks, months. You need to really play around with this one and make it work for you.
AdRotator – A plugin that can manage adsense and affiliate banners, etc. Great for seeing your top performing ads on the site, and doing some split testing between Adsense/banners.
RevShare – A great, great plugin if you have guest writers on your blog – the option of letting them write for your site and having their own Adsense ads on page. They’ll be happy that their writing is benefiting you while they make a bit of passive income on the side.
Beautifier – A fun one for designers. Images are placed near the Ad, to improve CTR – Warning: may be against Adsense TOS
Ad Wrap – Want sectional targetting? Google spiders will love this one because it wraps your posts up in a nice targetted adsense wrap.
