It completely crashed my Buddy Forest Theme...

My fixed nav bar was completely moved onto the center of the screen...

ANd most of the pages weren't covered by Adsense Ads...

It's lame ! It is a shame from Google...

adsense plugin needs an update
By , for WP 4.5.2

i enjoy the simplicity of the plugin but the dev's at google need to update it with new features and enhance the existing. cannot have link units, if link units present it limits the number of ad blocks. no control of the size of the ad blocks either.

0 starts!

Terrible... just terrible. Used to work perfectly but no updates, no markers, custom markers not visible in plugin, basically useless!

Don't even think about it
By , for WP 4.5.2

wow this plugin is horrible. Google plays as a saint in front of us saying don't harm the user experience of those who visit our site, but this plugin ruins the user experience by putting ads on everywhere and turning our site into some ugly one. also I put ads yesterday, and today they gone suddenly. I dunno what happened to them, I can't even edit the place where to put, the plugin decides where to put ads. meaning you have absolutely no control over the plugin. I can't even make it compatible with cloudflare through this plugin, then I put ads again, so it made another dozens of ads instead of reusing the existing one. sometimes I can't even put ads, but the ad manager says we have ads on the site, the plugin has to be deleted and reinstalled to make it works, then when we apply ads again, it makes another dozens of ads in the adsense account. so we end having a ton of useless unused ads in adsense account. can't even delete them. this is horrible. one of worst plugin I have ever seen in here. there are plenty of individuals here who develop outstanding plugins, but google as a company with billions of revenue can't develop a simple quality plugin.so obviously 1 star is deserved for this plugin. and the worst thing is there is no support. there are plenty of people in here who actively support their plugin, but I have never seen a SINGLE google employee who supports their products in here. I dunno what they do with all that billions of money they earn.

matched content?
By , for WP 4.5.2

after using https o my site, my adsense only show 2 ads with this plugin. when i try manage again using ad manager to show 3 ads again, always says "Oops. Something went wrong. Please try again."

and how about matched content placement? cause i don't seen matched content option for this plugin. when i add matched content code manualy on my site, this plugin always detect my ads slots it's over then 3 placement.

Automated Mobile Ads Still Not Working
By , for WP 4.5.2

I've had Google Adsense now for a couple of months and the Automated Mobile Ads still isn't working. Every time I try to Use Automated Mobile Ads I get the "Something went wrong. Please try again". Never works. :(

Useless
By , for WP 4.5.2

Another Google designed flop.

Slows down my site and half the time doesn't even work. Don't waste your time with this. Not unless you want to lose money. It really should be withdrawn from WordPress so people don't use it.

useless, not working fine

A beatiful piece of useless bunch of code
