Adsense Inserter


Quick Start Guide

  • [Adsense Inserter quick start guide at] (

A truly lightweight plugin for adding Adsense ads to any of your post or pages; including your homepage.

Many plugins for adding Adsense ads to your site are riddled with complex features and code. This may be good for some site owners, but many just want to place ads on their sites without the code being skewed by wpautop or other functions.

Adsense Inserter allows you to easily place your Adsense ads on your pages and post without adding a bunch of code and processing time to your site.

The extremely lightweight code lets you create as a many ads as you want. Then simply place the ads where ever you like on your site using the shortcode [adsense_inserter id=”%postId%”].

You can place the Adsense Inserter shortcodes in the visual editor or in the code editor. You can wrap them in div tags and control their placement on your site.

I create the Adsense Inserter because nothing else out there was lightweight enough for placing Adsense ads on my pages. I tried pasting the Adsense ads directly into my code, but always end up with broken code because of wpautop. I am now using Adsense Inserter on my Adsense sites.

You can use the Adsense Inserter plugin to place Adsense display ads and Adsense link units.

Types of Adsense Ads

You can place adsense text only ads, adsense display only ads, adsense text and display ads, and adsense link units. The shortcode will place the correct code you need to display your adsense ad no matter what size you use.

Where to place the Adsense ads

You can place your Adsense ads using the Adsense Inserter shortcode anywhere on your site where a shortcode can be executed. The Adsense Inserter plugin will place the necessary pieces of code in the right places to make your Adsense ads display correctly.

  • Adsense ads in header
  • Adsense ads in post
  • Adsense ads below post
  • Adsense ads in sidebar
  • Adsense ads in widgets

What you get when you use the Adsense Inserter plugin

Biggest Piece of Garbage Plugin I’ve seen

To give you an idea of how badly this plugin sucks, I created an account here just to give my opinion on this crap of a plugin. If I could give this a lower than 1 star rating – I gladly would.

ZERO instructions!! The link leads you to a quick start guide which is AN OPT-IN!!! Just a cheap trick to get you on a mailing list to shove even more pieces of crap down your throat. I pulled my hair out trying to figure it out, but life is just too short for that. You people need to seriously find another line of work. Plug-ins ain’t it!!!
