Adding Google Ads in WordPress


Can anyone give me a quick overview on how I can add Google Ads in WP, but also in general?

I know there a lot of plug ins, but can I filter out certain types of ads, like X-rated, and how do I get paid? Is it like monthly through PayPal?

Finally, can I add the Ads to a freshly-built site with no content.  I know the client will fill it up quickly. The website will be mostly in Macedonian using what I think its Unicode(?) characters (found under Language Settings --> Keyboards in most OSs), but some older content is using custom fonts that overwrite the Latin characters.

First sign up for Adwords with your Google Account. After signing up, you'll get the correct code. That code, you can insert anywhere on your site, in the footer, sidebar, etc, wherever you want.

Pay out has some rules, but usually, you are the one giving the pay out command, not a schedule. Please note, running a new site, without HEAVY traffic, will results in cents, probably not even 10 or 20 bucks for a full year of operation.

Suggestion: Open another question asking about how to optimize Ad Unit revenues.

As there are some very crafty ways of boosting a few pennies/month/page to $1000s/month/page.

And this is best handled in a new question.

When you set up your ad, you can specify the types of ads to allow, or block.  So this is something you can customize.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
