The most important thing to achieve is blending in your ads. Make sure the ads become a part of your content.

This is important because your visitors are used to ignore banners, buttons etc. Therefor you should avoid using the 468X60 banner with borders and image ads on; people will recognize this as one of those annoying banners and ignore it. Match the colors of your ads to the ones you use on your website: Choose the same background, text and link color and don't use a border.

2. Place AdSense Ads in your postings

Place ads in your postings. This way they are visible to every visitor who is reading any post on your website.

Go for the Medium Rectangle (300 x 250), Square (250 x 250) or Large Rectangle (336 x 280). To really integrate them you can place the ads in a floating div:

3. Place the ad in a floating div

To really integrate the ads in your posting you can place them in a floating div. By doing so your text will be displayed next to the ad. A floating div looks like this: <div style="display:block;float:left;padding:5px;"> Your AdSense code <div> <ol class="commentlist"> Place the following code directly after that: <li class="<?php echo $oddcomment; ?>"your AdSense Code

Make sure your ad matches the layout of your comments.

Your ad will now show only if there are comments to a post. If you want to show an ad when there are no comments as well you can look for the following line: <?php if (&#39;open&#39; == $post->comment_status) : ?> <!-- If comments are open, but there are no comments. -->

and place your AdSense code right after that.

5. Section Targeting

Section targeting allows you to suggest sections of your text and HTML content that you’d like to emphasize or downplay for the matching of ads to your site’s content. It's a technique to improve the relevance of the ads that are shown.

It's best to make sure you use this for every post you write, so that the ads shown for this post will be relevant. You can do this by placing the tags in the posting itself when you write it, or you can code it into your template. The tags you need to use are: <!-- google_ad_section_end --> <br><br><br><a href="" target=_blank><img border=0 src=images/digg.gif width=91 height=17 align=absmiddle></a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<img src=print.gif align=middle> <a href=print-story-19108.php rel="nofollow">Print this article</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<img src=pm-new.gif align=middle> <a href=email-19108.php rel="nofollow">Tell a friend</a> <br></div><br> <!-- Template comments_post_form --> <script language="JavaScript"> <!-- function AutoInsert(tag) { document.comments.message.value = document.comments.message.value + tag; } //--> </script> <table width="100%" cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0><tr><td width=20><img src=comment.gif></td><td background=blueback.gif class=topblue> Post New Comment</td></tr></table> <div class=offset> <br>This site does not allow anonymous comments. Registered members can <a href=login.php>login</a> to participate. <a href=register.php>Registration</a> is free and takes only a few seconds </div><br> <script src="" type="text/javascript"> </script> <script type="text/javascript"> _uacct = "UA-652216-2"; urchinTracker(); </script> <!-- Template site_footer --> </td></table> <br><div class=footer> <!-- Copyright notice --> <center>Copyright &copy;</center><center>Powered by <a href="" target="_blank">Esselbach Storyteller CMS System</a> Version 1.7-Free</center> <!-- Copyright notice --> </div><br><br>
