AdSense Now! gets you started with Google AdSense. No mess, no fuss. Simplest Google AdSense plugin.
This seems to be a problem with some WordPress installations. I have never been able to reproduce this error on any of my installations. I have found this on the web though.
AdSense Now is the freely distributed version of a premium plugin. The Pro version gives you more benefits -- lets you activate a filter to ensure that your ads show only on those pages that seem to comply with Google AdSense policies. It also lets you specify a list of computers where your ads will not be shown, in order to prevent accidental clicks on your own ads -- one of the main reasons AdSense bans you. These features will minimize your chance of getting banned. The Pro version costs $3.95, and is appropriate if you expect to make more than $100 of ad revenue from your site.
This plugin uses a paid support model in order to manage the support load. Each support ticket will be charged at $0.95 for the Lite version (and for the Pro version after a short free support period). The support ticket is valid for 48 hours, and further follow-up questions will call for a new support ticket.
What you have in AdSense is an ability to block ads from certain sites. For instance, if you don't like ads from my site "thulasidas.com", you can block them. What the pro version gives you is the ability to block ads to certain clients. That is, if you don't want visitors from certain IP addresses see your ads (because they may click on too many of them, getting your AdSense account banned, for instance), you can with my plugin.
Porn block also is similar -- Google lets you choose non-porn ads (I think). What my plugin does is to look at the content of your page, and block ads if it looks like a porn page. (This can happen if a spammer posts a porn kind of comment on your blog, which again may get your AdSense account banned.)
<div>s that AdSense Now! creates have the class attribute
adsense. Furthermore, they have attributes like
adsense-leadout depending on the type. You can set the style for these classes in your theme
style.css to control their appearance.
The other plugin I have published, Easy AdSense, does everything that AdSense Now! does and more. But in doing so, Easy AdSense has become an All-in-One AdSense plugin, and not "Easy" any more. I wanted to go back to the basics and provide a simple plugin to get our fellow bloggers started on AdSense.
If you think AdSense Now! is too lean and mean for your taste, try my full-fledged, feature-rich plugin Easy AdSense. I plan to keep AdSense Now! simple.
Note that you have to generate your adsense code from Google, and paste the entire code in the text box, replacing the existing text. Changing the publisher id alone is not good enough.
If you just created the new Google AdSense code, it may not be active yet. Google takes about ten minutes or so before serving ads. Please try again later.
Yes! Now, in V1.1+, you have more options (using Custom Fields) to control adsense blocks in individual posts/pages. Add custom fields with keys like
adsense-search and with values like
no to have control how the Google adsense blocks show up in each post or page. A Custom Field
adsense with value
no suppresses all AdSense ad blocks in the post or page.
If you have a question or comment about the Pro version, please do not use the forum hosted at WordPress.org, but contact the plugin author using our support portal.
