What is Google AdSense?
Google AdSense is an advertising network run by Google that allows bloggers and website owners the opportunity to earn money by displaying text, images, videos and other interactive advertisements on their websites. These ads are targeted by site content and audience.
Google AdSense is a free advertising program because you don’t have to deal with advertisers or worry about being charged when registering or running the program. Google manages and maintains relationships with advertisers. They collect payments, partake of Google, and send your share to you via various payment methods such as Western union or Wire Transfer.
How to Get Google AdSense Ad Code
The first thing you need to do is register for a Google AdSense account ( How to register for the Latest Google AdSense ). If you have a Gmail account, then you can use that Gmail account, if you already have a blog ready for you to register with Google AdSense and already have Gmail, please register for Google AdSense here .
After you have submitted your registration form you will receive an email within 6 – 8 hours, Google will inform you whether you have passed the first step of the review process. If you pass this first checking process, then you can log into your AdSense account and get your ad code.
Start by clicking the menu on the left sidebar called ” Ads” and clicking ” Overview “, then clicking the menu tab above ” BY AD UNIT “. You will see that there are about 5 types of AdSense ads displayed. In this example I will choose the ad type ” Display Ads “.
This will take you on a page where you can create a new ad unit. On this page, you can see immediately what type and format of ad you have chosen.
First, write the name of your ad unit at the very top. Make a name according to your wishes, this ad name is only intended to differentiate what type of ad you make.
The next configuration is to choose Display Ad , namely there are 3 forms of advertisements such as Square, Horizontal and Vertical. You can see this form of advertisement directly in the display below.
The next configuration is to choose Ad Size or ad size. Google highly recommends that you choose “Responsive” ads, because this ad size can adjust the size according to the ad area on your WordPress theme, and can change according to the visitor’s device accessing your website. Of course I highly recommend that you choose a responsive size, but if you want to set your own ad size, you just have to click the drop down menu and there will be a “Fixed” option and there is a column to enter the ad size.
After you are done with your ad configuration, please click the “Create” button and you will see an ad code ready for you to copy and post onto your blog site. There will be two types of ad code, namely HTML and AMP, please copy the code in HTML only, and if your blog site supports AMP, then you can also place the ad code on the WordPress AMP theme.
Copy your ad code and paste it in Notepad as you will need it in the next step. And click “Done” then the new ad unit has been created. You can edit this ad or search for this ad code at any time because the ad unit will be saved in your AdSense account.
