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?

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?

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.

Can't get passed 'Get Started' screen
By , for WP 0.1.0

'400. That’s an error.
The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know.'

That pops up every time I click on 'Get Started'. I get it, it's a beta but it sucks when you can't do squat with it. I would like to try it out and see what it does. Seems like everyone else is able to. I even disabled my cookies as I read in a previous review that it was preventing someone from logging in to adsense. Nothing seems to have worked yet. If someone could help, i would be grateful.

Can't get passed the Google login screen
By , for WP 3.8

The plug-in installed fine. However, when I try to set it up, I can't get passed the Google login screen.

It keeps asking to re-enter my password. However, if I open a new tab/window and go to Google.com, I'm logged in.
