Works almost perfectly, great support even for the free version!

You can’t get wrong with this plugin; I used Advertising Manager which was dropped by its developers, and guess what, AdRotate even imports those old ads directly and configures them for you 🙂 It is actually more flexible and includes more graphical statistics, everything you could wish for.

The only slight issue I personally have with it has to do with JavaScript, my own server/WP configuration does not allow JS to be entered into AdRotate, but there are workarounds, and possibly a solution from the author in the future.

I haven’t tested the Pro version yet, but this plugin is definitely on my shortlist of plugins that I’m willing to pay for!

The best Ad plugin!

I tried 2 another Ad plugins but had troubles with AdBlock and settings. AdRotate solved my problem easily. This plugin has very simple and powerful settings and nonetheless I am going to buy Pro version. Big thank you Arnan de Gans for your great job!

Simple+Clean=Worth to Paid for Pro


Yes…you right..

“Many users only think to review AdRotate when something goes wrong while thousands of people happily use AdRotate. If you find AdRotate useful please leave your rating and review on to help AdRotate grow in a positive way!”

That’s why i willing to give a full star here.. best part it’s clean without any messy ads etc on free version .. easy to use ..

I willing to paid for pro after this!

Only one thing, how i can know/get a stats profile of clicker such as location/browser etc? If not in feature .. i wish to wait it for next version
