Written by

Do you want to add Google AdSense Code to your site?

Google AdSense is the best Ad network in the world. This is the easiest way to monetize your website and earn money online from the website. It offers high-quality and right ads to your visitors.

Today in this article I will tell you how to put on Google Adsense website in WordPress.

What is Google AdSense

Google AdSense is an advertising network run by Google through which website publishers can earn money by showing text, images, video, or interactive ads on their websites. This site displays highly relevant ads by targeting content and visitors.

It provides cost-per-click (CPC) ads. You will get money when users click on your ads. The money received per click varies depending on different factors.

Adsense’s minimum payout threshold is $ 100. Which you can get through a check, EFT, wire transfer, and Western Union.

If you want to display AdSense ads on your WordPress site, then first you have to sign up for a Google AdSense account. But obtaining AdSense approval is not easy. You have to follow its strict guidelines.

Once you submit your application, you will have to wait from week to week to review it.

Now let’s add Google AdSense Code to our site…

How to Manually Install Google Adsense in WordPress

First of all, log in to your Adsense account. Then click on Ads >> By ad unit. After this, you have to click on Create a new ad unit. [You can choose ad type for your ad unit, currently, I have selected Display ads]

After this, you have to give a name (anything) of the ad unit, then choose the size of the ad unit.

Google offers a variety of ad sizes, some of which are very popular among advertisers. However, you can choose a responsive or fixed ad size. I would recommend you to choose responsive ads as they work well on all devices and screen sizes.

Next, click on the Create button. AdSense will now generate ad code for you which will have a unique ad unit ID and your publisher ID.

Now you need to determine where you want the ad to appear on your website. Advertisements are usually displayed in the sidebar or header. You can add the Google Adsense code to your sidebar using the WordPress widget.

Click Appearance >> Widgets. Then drag the Custom HTML widget into your sidebar then paste your AdSense code.

AdSense will now generate a code snippet.

You have to paste this code in the Header of the site so that ads can show in all the pages of the site.

If your theme provides a box by default to add code to Header and Footer, then you can paste this code in Header.
But your theme does not provide any default option to add code to Header and Footer, you can use the plugin.

First of all, you have to install and activate the Insert Headers and Footers plugin on your site.

After activating the plugin, click Settings >> Insert Headers and Footers and paste the AdSense code in the header section.
After this click on the Save button to store your settings. It may take some time for Google AdSense to display ads.

Now just click on AMP >> Advance Setup >> Settings >> Advanced Settings. Paste the first code in the Enter HTML in Headbox, then paste the second code in the Enter HTML in Body.

Click the Save button to store your settings. Google AdSense will start showing ads on your AMP page after some time.
