AdSense Now!

AdSense Now! gets you started with Google AdSense. No mess, no fuss. Simplest Google AdSense plugin.

I activated the plugin, and I see a lot of red boxes on my blog posts your ads will be inserted here. How do I get rid of them?

AdSense Now! draws a red box on your blog posts to show where the ads would be shown if you entered the ad code on its admin page. This is meant to serve as a reminder for you to go to the admin page and enter the ad code. If you would like to suppress them, disable the corresponding ad slot by selecting "Suppress" under "Where to Show?" on the plugin admin page.

What are the different versions of the plugin?

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.

How can I contact the plugin author if I need help?

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 72 hours, and further follow-up questions will call for a new support ticket.

I still don't get it. Porn and site block - that you already have during Asdense ad setup?

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.)

How can I control the appearance of the adsense blocks using CSS?

All <div>s that AdSense Now! creates have the class attribute adsense. Furthermore, they have attributes like adsense-leadin, adsense-midtext and adsense-leadout depending on the type. You can set the style for these classes in your theme style.css to control their appearance.

Why another AdSense plugin?

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.

I like its simplicity, but *AdSense Now!* doesn't have all the features I need. Can you add *this* and *that* feature?

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.

I just activated the plugin. How come I don't see any ads in my blog?

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.

Can I control how the adsense blocks are formatted in each page?

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-top, adsense-middle, adsense-bottom, adsense-widget, adsense-search and with values like left, right, center or 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.

How do I report a bug or ask a question?

Please report any problems, and share your thoughts and comments at the plugin forum at WordPress Or contact me.

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.
