How to add AdSense adverts to WordPress and verify a website in AdSense with the use of Site Kit by Google?

It is important to place the AdSense advertising code in a website that uses WordPress. In a situation when you start working with AdSense, one of the first tasks you need to do is to connect your website to AdSense. It is advisable to use the WordPress Site Kid plugin from Google.

This is a free, open-source plugin that facilitates direct access from the service’s account to unified data and statistics coming from Google AdSense, Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and PageSpeed Insights. Moreover, it will allow you to connect everything and place the AdSense code on all your websites. As a result, you will be able to display adverts on them automatically.

Installation and configuration for Site Kit by Google

  1. Open your WordPress dashboard and click ‘Add New’ in the ‘Plugins’ menu.
  2. Search for “Site Kit by Google“, find the plugin, and click ‘Install Now’.
  3. Click ‘Activate’ after installing the plugin.
  4. Click ‘Start Setup’ and complete all the actions to configure the Site Kit plugin.
  5. Once you configure, click ‘Connect Service’ in the ‘AdSense’ section. You can find it on the Site Kit dashboard or the ‘Settings’ tab.
  6. Follow the instructions in the Site Kit. Allowing this plugin to implement the AdSense code is recommended. It will place the AdSense code on your website for both AMP and non-AMP versions.

An important thing you cannot forget about is to make sure you have automated ads enabled in your AdSense account. You need to know that the Site Kit does not have permission to implement changes to your account settings.

When your website is ready to display ads and generate traffic, the AdSense data will be visible in the plugin under the ‘AdSense’ tab.

Once you activate your AdSense account, you can display adverts and, at the same time, earn money from the content you publish.

AdSense and EU policy? Action required!

Remember! If you have users from the European Economic Area or Great Britain, uncheck this box to comply with the Google policy regarding the EU user consent.
