In this video you’re going to learn how to add Adsense ads to an individual post or page.

As usual, there’s a plugin for that. I use Ad Inserter.

So install the plugin, activate it and let’s go.

Make sure to click on Save All Settings every time you make changes or it’s not going to work.

Please don’t have too many ads or your website is going to look spammy. A short post should have one or no ads and a long post may have more.

Marion, I put my code in the Ad Inserter "header" tap. I found it by accident. I was following your training to the letter, looking at you video, pausing it, while going to my website and doing very thing to the letter. In the Ad Inserter console there is a round button at the end of the blocks. I clicked on it there. Is that a proper place for the header code too? Just curious if I've done the right thing. Thanks.

Hello Marion,

Thank you for the informative video.
I have a question. Is it possible to control what kind of ads appear on a website?
Also, I noticed that there is an option called 'Automatically smarter ads'. Have you tried that as well?
Another thing - is it mandatory to create new AD Unit for different posts or it is OK to use a single one?
Either way, I receive this error when putting in-article ad unit for one of posts (it works for another one, though) %MINIFYHTML9bf9056a1dab8d038d4c1bf91b0524759%
%MINIFYHTML9bf9056a1dab8d038d4c1bf91b05247510%
Do you have any idea?

Google controls the ads which appear on the website. They automatically take into consideration the browsing history, interests and location of the viewer as well as the content on your website, and serve ads that they "think" the viewer will click on. You can control whether or not to allow gambling and adult content but that's about the limit of your control. Trust them, they know what they're doing.

Is "Automatically smarter ads" something new? I haven't come across that yet.

I use different ads for different websites so I can see which site is working for me. But there's no reason why you couldn't use the same code for more than one site. There's no need to create different ad units for different posts as the same code can be used everywhere.

Sorry, I can't help with the error codes you're seeing. Perhaps it's got something to do with a plugin you've got installed.

Thank you! I figured out that the error is gone when I don't use the plugin but I put directly the script in the post (text editor).Strange behavior...

HI Marion! Great video, thanks so much. My account was disapproved because it says I didn't have enough content. Most of my posts are around 300 words. When I submitted it at first I hadn't set things up like how you just showed us. Do you think that makes a difference? Should I resubmit now that I have set it up as per your video?
Thanks a bunch

The first step with Google Adsense is to get yourself or your company approved by Adsense. The second step is to place an ad in the sidebar widget area. Then you need to wait for Adsense to approve your website. It's only after your website has been approved that you should start putting ads within the posts.

If you feel that you now have sufficient content to make them happy you'll want to reapply.

Maybe I am way off the thread, but I thought different niches required particular lengths of articles?

Here's a little quote from a post on my website:
"An article should be as long as it takes to explain the subject fully without fluff. I like to say that a post should be like a miniskirt; short enough to be interesting and long enough to cover the important parts."

and
"Targeting a particular number of words is a waste of everyone’s time. Your time in writing the article and your reader’s time when they are reading it. If they don’t find the information they want quickly their eyes seem to glaze over and they skim through the rest of the article. Or just leave. Your job is to give them the information they want in such a way that they enjoy reading the article."

Another little gem to add to my Marion treasure trove. However there is a conflict about length of posts which I find confusing.

The way I resolve conflicts like this is to look at the actual posts that appear at the top of the search results. Are they all the same number of words? If not, does the actual number of words really matter? Or is the quality of the words more important?

Hi Marion, this doesn't work on my site. I did add the Easy ads plugin, inserted the code in the box, checked all the boxes you said. placed the short code and waited. Got a mail from Google Adsense, Your request has been disapproved for the following reasons. Property rights of the domain: To complete the AdSense approval process, you must link your site to AdSense.

After that, I used the Header and Footer Scripts, placed the script in there, and the script into a widget. Then I received an email from Adsense, your site is approved. And the adsense ad is now appearing in the sidebar.

Until now I kept both plugins, and I don't know whether I can delete the Easy ads plugin safely because I don't want Adsense anywhere else than in the sidebar, I don't need the shortcode inserter anyway.

I don't know which script Adsense detected, or doesn't this matter? If you know what I mean

It sounds like you've got it sorted now. You don't need the Ad Inserter Plugin and now you've got the ads appearing in the sidebar you don't need the code in your header area anymore.

Hi Marion, I was using Easy Plugin For Adsense, but it has not been updated for a year or so. So have to use this Add Inserter. It was easy for the blocks in the text, but do not see how to add it to the widget. I checked the widget option but not sure what next, the block did not appear. Am I supposed to add a text widget manually to the sidebar?

I could do this without the plugin but thought it would be convenient this way.

Do you realize, there is no 'like' button here? What is wrong? I do have 'unfollow".

There is an Ad Inserter widget but I can't get it to work. I've also tried using a regular Text widget and Custom HTML widget but nothing is showing up.

Kyle said he's given the team a nudge about the "Like" button on videos which got accidentally removed on the last design of the video page but I haven't seen it yet.
