Okay, so you’ve started your own WordPress blog, worked hard on it, built a following and now you want to monetize it, how do you go about doing that? Well, there are various ways to do so, but one quick and easy way is by displaying ads. And for that you need Google Adsense, in the words of Google itself , “Google AdSense is a free program that empowers online publishers to earn revenue by displaying relevant ads on a wide variety of online content.”
Selecting the best Adsense plugin for your blog can be a confusing task since there are so many out there.
Based on my experience, the following are the best Adsense plugins for WordPress out there:
1. Ad Injection
My favourite plugin is Ad Injection. I like it because it’s easy to install, easy to use and quite efficient. Some of the features of this plug-in are:
• You can set the position of Adsense at the top and bottom of the article.
• You can also position random ads in the middle of the post.
• You can fade non-useful one/Archive options.
• You can add page age and status to settings.
2. Adsense Deluxe
Adsense Deluxe offers advanced options for automatic insertion of Google AdSense and also supports Yahoo Publisher Network (YPN) ads to your Word Press Blog. What’s great about this plugin is that it can easily switch to all AdSense ads and can match with your blog theme perfectly.
3. Adsense Injection
Adsense Injection inserts Adsense code randomly into a blog post, it takes a random paragraph from the article and inserts adsense code there.
4. Adsense Beautifier
As the name suggests, Beautifier represents ads beautifully by placing images beside them and helps to increase your clicks which may help increase your subsequent Adsense earnings.
5. AdRotator WordPress Plugin
This is another great plugin; it can help you rotate your Adsense with other affiliate programs wherever you want.
6. Adsense Earnings WordPress Plugin
It displays the Adsense on front end of your blog and also displays your Adsense earning report in the WordPress admin panel and hence keeping you updated about your earnings.
7. AdSense Sharing Revenue and Earnings System
This Adsense plugin for WordPress allows you to view your Adsense earnings and also allows you to share your earning reports with your friends. This is another useful plugin for WordPress; Ad Wrap helps you wrap posts and comments for better targeted ads.
I have experimented with a lot of plugins and these are the ones that I have found to be the most effective. If you have any more questions about Adsense Plugins, feel free to ask me in the comments below.
