Adding Google AdSense to your WordPress website can be a great way to monetize your content and earn some extra income.
In this step-by-step tutorial, we will guide you through the process of integrating Google AdSense with your WordPress site.
To begin, we need to set up a free WordPress account. Head over to pantheon.io, where you can create your WordPress site without any payment.
After creating your Pantheon account, you can proceed to create your new WordPress site.
Scroll down and choose “Create New Site.” Select WordPress as your content management system (CMS) and create a username for your Pantheon account.
This username will allow you to sign in to WordPress later on. Once you have completed these steps, you will be taken to the dashboard of your new WordPress site.
Installing the Plugin
Now that your WordPress site is set up, it’s time to install the necessary plugin for Google AdSense.
In your WordPress dashboard, scroll down and click on “Plugins,” then select “Add New.”
In the search bar, enter the keyword “G Suite” and look for the plugin called “Google Site Kit by Google.” Install and activate this plugin.
Setting Up Google AdSense
Next, let’s connect your site to Google AdSense. Click on “Google AdSense” in your WordPress dashboard sidebar.
Select your Google AdSense account, and make sure you have signed up for an account before proceeding.
If you haven’t signed up yet, you can do so by clicking on “I don’t have a site yet” and following the instructions.
In the Google AdSense settings, choose your payment country and agree to the terms of service.
Scroll down and click on “Start using AdSense” to enter the AdSense dashboard.
Now, let’s connect your site to AdSense. Click on “Let’s go” and select “Add site.” In your WordPress dashboard,
go to “Settings” and locate the “WordPress Address” and “Site Address.” Copy the URL and paste it into the AdSense panel. Save the changes.
Once your site is connected, you will see a code snippet provided by AdSense.
Copy the code and paste it between the head tags on each page of your site. This will allow AdSense to display ads on your website.
Connecting Google Analytics
As part of the setup process, it’s recommended to connect Google Analytics to your WordPress site.
This will provide you with valuable insights into your site’s performance. To connect to Google Analytics, click on “Dashboard” in the Site Kit panel.
Click on “Sign in with Google” and choose the same Google account you used for the site kit setup. Enable all the necessary permissions and continue.
If you encounter any issues with authentication, simply reload the page and try again using the same account. Once you have successfully authenticated, you can proceed with the setup.
Finalizing the Setup
After connecting Google Analytics, go back to the Google AdSense section in your WordPress dashboard.
You should see a message indicating that your site is connected and under review. Once your site is approved, you can start displaying ads on your website.
To see how the ads look on your site, go to “Explore” in the Site Kit panel. Select your website from the list and enable the ads.
You can customize the ad formats and the number of ads displayed on your pages. Make sure to save your changes.
If you want to provide more information about your website to Google AdSense, you can do so by entering the relevant details in the “Enter Information” section.
Adding Google AdSense to your WordPress site is a straightforward process that can help you monetize your content and earn revenue.
By following this step-by-step tutorial, you can easily integrate Google AdSense with your WordPress website, allowing you to start earning money from ads.
Remember to always comply with AdSense policies and guidelines to ensure a positive user experience on your site. Good luck!
