Ads Cover Content
By , for WP 4.4.2

It's easy to use, but I use photos in my blog and the photos push around the ads. When the ad is finally placed, instead appearing between the photos and blog text the ads covers up the blog text.

Right now the only way I can avoid the issue is by only using ads that run in the sidebar or at the bottom of the page. The ads inserted in the content are more likely to get hits and I would like to use them.

Thank you, Google, for creating something that actually works and allows me to add and delete ads on every page and post with the click of a button. Love you!

Only good for quick setup - VERY NON-OPTIMIZED
By , for WP 4.4

While this WordPress Plugin is good to quickly setup your Google Adsense placements without CODING, it should be used as a TEMPORARY measure only.

The reasons:
- Inconsistency: Very often some ads will not show up at all! So if you have the 3 Ads limit per page, if you set them up using this Plugin, you may sometimes only get 1-2 Ads to show.

THIS REALLY ADDS UP OVER TIME!

CONCLUSION:
The moment I stopped using this Plugin (after having done so for about 2 months), and hard coded my Adsense placements to show in my posts' body, my revenue SHOT UP by about 50% if not more!!!! Yes, it really is THAT SIGNIFICANT.

It is indeed surprising, since this Plugin is developed by Google themselves. But it is very far from perfect when using it to deliver your Adsense placements.

If you're just setting up your Adsense for the very first time, use this plugin to get you started QUICKLY. Something is better than nothing, right? But, hard code your placements as soon as possible for MAXIMAL revenue potential. That's my advice.

Good Luck!

Controls Don't Work
By , for WP 4.4

When I first started using Google Adsense plugin, I thought it was great. The interactive feature on where you want ads to appear and what kind seemed awesome. But, it simply doesn't comply with your selections. I specifically asked for specific types and sizes of ads in certain areas of my website but it randomly chooses sizes and types throwing my layout out of wack. Too bad.

Most useless plugin

Every after few days, all ad placements are removed automatically.
