Another day, and falling a dollar short with the most recent news concerning Google’s Adsense Plugin for WordPress.
If you display ads on your website using Adsense Plugin for WordPress by Google, then your days of using this plugin to earn money online are on its deathbed.
If you haven’t heard in recent news, Google has canned yet another product.
At least this time, it was a support product and not a main product, such as killing Adsense in its entirety.
Based on a statement released by Google in review of the product and its features offered, the Adsense Plugin for WordPress was discontinued due to Google having confidence that it could increase the value and better support WordPress publishers by extending the flexibility of native ads and their respective formats.
So, as of March 2017, if you’re newbie and looking to use the Google Adsense Plugin for WordPress, then you’ll have to choose to use one of the plugins listed below.
Starting next month, April 2017, Existing publishers will lose all capability and functionality to modify ad settings or units via the plugin.
And finally, Google will kick the Adsense Plugin for WordPress and its support to the curve.
Personally, I’m not impacted by this update but you might be. I do use Adsense platform to place relevant ads next to and within (not often) my content as a method to pad my efforts in creating value-add content.
And if you’re simply new to Adsense and wanting an easy way to manage Adsense ads, I recommend you read Harsh Agrawal’s newly released Google Adsense Mastery Guide.
