Now bloggers do blogging to make money. And the first thing they want to do is to put Google AdSense on their blog. Embedding or placing Google AdSense on your WordPress can be accomplished in a variety of ways. Here is a WordPress guide that gives you different options for integrating Ads into your WordPress blog.
Google Adsense in a Sidebar
The easiest way to add adds in sidebar is to use WordPress widgets. Adding Google Adsense code to your sidebar and moving them into the order you want is easily achievable by simply dragging and dropping. You can also add anything you want including HTML code into a text widget.
The latest version of WordPress is integrated with widgets. If you are using old version which does not support widgets, than you can grab the Sidebar widgets plugin. Keep in mind that not all WordPress themes are “Widget Ready” so if you don’t see the widget option in your dashboard then you will need to Widgetize your theme.

AdSense Code Into A WordPress Theme
With WordPress Plugins like AdSense-Deluxe, you can place Adsense code on any post or page. If you don’t want to use Plugin even than you can place to add your code in the main index template (index.php), also be placed in the single post (single.php), page template (page.php), archives and if your theme has one the 404 template. Open one of the files and place your code just above the post content, so place the code above like this:
Your Code Here
<?php if (have_posts()) : //Are there any posts? ?>
Other places to place the code are:
Below the post, above or below the comments:
<?php if ( comments_open() ) : //if comments are allowed ?>
You can experiment with many different places, just be sure to backup any file you are attempting to edit, and that the AdSense code or banner fits in the area and that all HTML or script tags are properly closed. It would also be wise to view your changes in different browsers and different size windows to make sure it looks right.
