Great video. I’d like to see a tutorial on how to use DFP, specifically the GPT (Google Publisher Tag), so you can call out different resolutions based on device.
You post good stuff, thank you
Thank you so much! this helped out a lot, you earned a new subscriber very nice explained not to rushed keep up the fantastic work.
When i paste into the custom HTML, it shows 6 errors and I can’t fix them. Is there another way to input the code?
wordpress.com use .xml language but adscence use .html language and there is a huge difference and if you want to start a website just go to wordpress.org and install wordpress and you can use adscence there
Cristina Z thank you because i was trying to figure this out as well and something kept telling me that i would have to purchase business plan but i wasnt sure thank you this was so helpful.
@Cristina Z Is your site a blogging site? It happened with me too when I had only pictures on my website but as soon as I started posting blogs, it started working. This is my website: zackroyart.com
not working with the free plan my friend, to make money you must spend money.
That’s the same error I’m getting. Did you ever figure this out? Do you have to have a paid wordpress.org site in order to add adsense?
great video. Really well explained. I have tried before, and think I got discouraged thinking it wasnt working when it showed up blank the first time. Thanks for including that warning. I didnt know it was so easy!
Great Video! Very well explained. Cheers ??
thanks! i thought i had to pay for wordpress premium..
As long as you have a WordPress.org site and not a WordPress.com site you are correct: http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/self-hosted-wordpress-org-vs-free-wordpress-com-infograph/

Thanks for the informative video! I’ve got an issue and it is the “Valuable inventory: Under construction” error. How do I fix this?
You would want to reach out to the Google Adsense support for that specific error and they should be able to assist you for the reason for your specific site 🙂
Thanks for the helpful video!!
You’re welcome 🙂
Thank you so very much. Very well explained. Simple and effective.
You’re welcome 🙂
When do we need a Google Adsense on your blog? After gaining a decent amount of traffic?? Or
That would be a personal question for when you look to add Google Adsense
I am so lost when it comes to this adsense stuff. I just followed your steps, but it says, “There are 6 errors which must be fixed before you can save”. What do I do?
Were you able to find a solution? Trying to get ads to display as well.
Yeah, my problem is I have a free WordPress.com account. You need a paid WordPress.org account in order to have ads. I’m in the process of trying to get a paid site up and running but so far it’s been a nightmare.. hope you have better luck..
thank you this was really helpful
You’re welcome, glad it could help 🙂
This looks totally different from what I’m seeing on my adsense & wordpress account ?
Google may have updated their interface yet again but, for WordPress there shouldn’t be much of a change. Are you on WordPress.com?
