Webmaster abd adsense account are different
By , for WP 4.1.1

I have different email accounts for adsense and webmaster. It does not have that flexibility. So it is totally useless plugin. Didn't expected this from Google.

If it only would work nicely
By , for WP 4.1.1

In the preview everything looks good. In real the banner ads are a bit wider than the site -> ugly. It's not possible to align them and I only had large banner and skyscraper propositions. I would like to have squares too. Large banner and skyscraper are very dominant. On one hand Google wants us to create valuable content, on the other hand they put ads in the foreground with the hammering method and my precious content desappears outside of the screen. I'm not happy with that. It should also be possible to create ads on the fly within this plugin.

The idea behind is very good and the plugin could be helpful. For the moment, it is not perfect at all and it patronizes the webmaster too much.

But once it works I will install it immediately.

Violates AdSense Policies
By , for WP 4.0.1

I have just tried out the Google AdSense Plugin for WordPress and found out it automatically added the ads to error page template.

Which is of course against the Google AdSense policies.

So unless you want to get banned, stay away from this plugin.

Needs to be responsive. Any suggestions?
By , for WP 4.0.1

I need to be able to use different ad formats for mobile and tablet views. This plugin seems to lack this. Any suggestions on a good plugin to use?

Thanks,

Plugin doesnt allow to disable ads on a specific post
By ,

The major drawback for this plugin is this Plugin doesnt allow to disable ads on a specific post or pages or categories or archives.

It might be a requirement for a publisher to not to place ads on a specific post or page as he/she doesnt want to monetize that content rather wants to monetise other posts. I have been facing this issue perpetually. But I sheerly want to use this plugin because it creates ad units in my adsense account automatically when I place ads. Even if I am willing to I am not able to use this pluin.

I have written to the plugin author weeks ago but dont even see any response on the same. Not even a reply even saying that it is not possible with this plugin. Plugin support seems to be worst at this moment. :( Disappointed.
