Installing Adsense on a WordPress Blog

A wordpress blog is what you are reading. It is a program that helps you make a website and easily yack about different things. This blog is mostly about chiropractic, but it can go in almost any direction!

Adsense are those little adds you see off to the side of many websites. If you click on them the owner of the site makes money.

This article teaches you how to set up adsense on a wordpress blog.

This will work for a wordpress blog you set up from

First you need to get wordpress up and running. Enough for its own article!

Then you need to register with adsense at google.

Then it is almost impossible for you to get it to work unless you have a friend like DAX!

DAX is famous for his bunny adoption site. (This is not a legitamate actual site but just a joke!)

DAX also created the plugin for wordpress that you will find here.

You simply download it onto your desktop.

Then put it in the wordpress subdirectory for plugins, and load this onto the server where your blog is hosted.
Then open up wordpress.

Go to the plugins section.

Click on activate for that plugin.

Go into adsense and find under MyAccount – next to Adsense for Content – there will be a number something like ca-ks-3i3i4i2p23oi

Just copy the whole thing starting with the ca.

Then go into wordpress under options – adsense, and paste that number into the adsense ID.

Set the settings for what you want and you are in business!

The ads pop up all over the place!

I have chosen not to use adsense on this site because I want it to be a great reading experience for the user. For other sites I have set up for other people though, it looks and works great.

It puts the adds right in the middle of where you are reading which can be irritating for the reader, but great for the webmaster!

Thanks Dax!

  1. Informative post! But, is it not that you need to have paid hosting for your wordpress blog before you can install your own google adsense account? (I like the font you are using – that’s this type?)

  2. Thanks for yet another first-class article. I am always on the look-out for awesome WordPress tricks to suggest to my readers. Thanks for making this article. It’s just what I was looking for. Truly fantastic post.

  3. Hi there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price? Cheers, I appreciate it!
