Isn’t it ironic how I can do one post on how blogging is not all about money and then not long after, I do another one on how bloggers can increase the earning potential of their blogs by merely using the right plugins. I think it would be safe to say that a lot of bloggers rely on adsense as the predominate source of their blogging income. This being the case we can optimize our earnings by having adsense appearing on individual posts but because it is a virtual pain in the ass to place the code in a post most don’t bother with it.
Enter the WhyDoWork Adsense Plugin, a plugin that enables you to do this automatically giving you complete control over where the ads occur and even when they occur. For example, you may not want the ads to appear on your newer posts so you set it to only appear on posts that are older than ‘x’ amount of days. This plugin is extremely versatile and comes with a whole heap of settings giving you complete control.
Although I haven’t tried it I don’t see why you can’t use codes other than adsense allowing you to display Yahoo ads or perhaps even your affiliate banners. When displaying banners I would suggest if possible that you use rotating banners as these will give those selected affiliates maximum exposure. One thing that I hate about affiliate banners are those damn emails telling me that one ad or another has been suspended and could I please remove the banner and replace it with another. The only problem is I can’t remember which post is displaying that particular ad. Rotating banners solves that problem as only current ads are displayed.
