If you don’t know the scripts of your Google AdSense advertisements by memory, nor have them in close proximity to copy and paste into your WordPress blog or website, the easy use of implementing your AdSense advertisements into your WordPress website at anytime you want may not yet be in existence. But there’s a very easy way to add your Google AdSense advertisements without constantly re-copying a multi-line java script code into every HTML ready nook and cranny.

The simple solution is to create a shortcode in the current WordPress theme’s functions.php file. This way Google AdSense advertisements can easily be displayed at any time by creating  the shortcode (It just makes sense): [adsense]

Below is a PHP functions code that will create a shortcode for WordPress and will allow you to display Google AdSense advertisements. Our demo AdSense script, which we displayed once above is highlighted in gray font below. 

Down Copy and paste the code below into your functions.php file Replace ADSENSE SCRIPT HERE to your Google AdSense java script.

function adsenseads() {
    return '<div id="adsenseads">ADSENSE SCRIPT HERE</div>';
add_shortcode('showmyads', 'adsenseads');

To display Google Adsense advertisements use the shortcode: [adsense]

To create  multiple Google AdSense advertisement shortcodes in WordPress change only the word ‘adsense’ in the last line of the functions.php code. A suggestion is to label shortcodes for different advertisements. For example ‘adsense1’ and ‘adsense2’ will create the shortcodes [adsense1] and [adsense2]. You can even name the shortcodes after the titles of your AdSense advertisements. This is a great way to keep track of your Google AdSense advertisements in WordPress if you are always writing and need to place advertisements which configure correctly in certain spaces.
