Steps to Add Google Adsense to WordPress Blog
Before start displaying ads on your site first and foremost thing you need to do is sign up for a Google AdSense account. You can also sign up with your existing Gmail account else you need to create one.
After submitting your application for AdSense, within 6-8 hours Google sends you an email telling you have passed your first step of the review process. In this step Google ask you login into your account and get code for your ads.
For getting code, click on My Ads and then on New ad unit as shown below.
Once you do this, you will get option to choose Ads size, type and style.
The naming of Ads is only for internal understanding, so you can name it like “Left Sidebar”. Most of the times we don’t see fill this option but it is necessary.
After this you will get option to choose Ads size. Google provide varied number of Ads size which you can display on your website, there are some popular size which are recommended by Google itself. Recommended means Google noticed better result with this layout.
After this you will get option to choose Ad type, I recommend choosing both Text & display ads.
For backup ads, you can either choose to have a blank space or fill it with your own ads. This is shown when Google cannot find an appropriate advertise (which rarely happens).
You can track your performance site wise by using Custom Channels feature. If you don’t want to use you ignore it.
I recommend you using your site’s theme color on your ads.
Finally you are done with all the steps and click on “Save”. Once you click on save a prompt box will appear saying ads created successfully and ads code below it.
Copy the code and paste it somewhere in the notepad or you can directly use it.

Placement of Ads totally depends on your theme layout and here our goal is to get most traffic. So you place your around the content and below the title of the post so that people are forced to click on ads. Do place your ads on sidebar that works best.
