Best Google Adsense: WP Plugin Review

If you’re looking for a real simple way to install Google AdSense scripts into your blog then you might want to hear about the ‘Best Google AdSense plugin’ for WordPress by JelyHost.

I installed this plugin into one of my other WordPress blog projects to give it a test run. It’s fairly simple to install by simply going to your plugins and add new and searching for Best Google AdSense.

Settings

You can access the settings for this plugin by going to settings and clicking on the Best Google AdSense link.

Google AdSense Settings

The Google AdSense settings is where you need to place your publisher ID which normally starts with pub-… you can normally find this in one of your AdSense ad unit scripts or from your Adsense account.

The custom channels field is optional and allows you to define groups of ads for better tracking.

General Settings

Here you can start off by making changes to the display configuration. You have the option to select border type; normal or rounded.

The ad size section is somewhat lacking in several essential ad sizes. The sizes available to select from are:

234 x 60

468 x 60

728 x 90

120 x 600

160 x 600

120 x 240

However there isn’t an option it would seem for any of the other sizes including the popular ones like 300 x 250 and 336 x 280 which is a shame.

Other settings include customizing text, link and background colour, number of ads per page and per post, ad type, ad placement; which is a great feature, and a few options to not show ads on certain pages.

There is also a donation option field which by default is set to 5%, but entering 0 in this field will disable it.

All in all it’s not a bad plugin, somewhat limited with ad sizes and the ad placement options could be with being a little more customizable but nevertheless it a good one for anyone looking for a simple way to ad AdSense to their blog. Try it out for yourself here.

  1. Can this plugin ignore the clicks from bots?!

    • Fabrizio Van Marciano says:

      Hi Sallaye, thanks for your comment and your question. Good point and to be honest with you I don’t really know, I know from previous experience that bot clicks don’t do your Adsense account any real justice, but I’m not entirely sure whether it can ignore bot clicks or not. Check out the authors website here http://jelyhost.com.br/ for more information or to poise the question direct if possible, thanks.

  2. Ok, Thank You very much for your reply to my question.

    Hi, can you recommend a WP plugin that works to multi-contributor site like the one i use here? We are currently working on our revenue sharing of our site. We tried AdSense Revenue Sharing, it seems like it will just randomize all authors. It should work like, each author’s post his own ads will be shown.

  4. I want to know how to monetize my bog and my website. I’m really new about this. Any idea?
