Over the years Google’s AdSense program has become widely popular along with few other online Advertising programs. Today in this post I will show you how to put Ad in between WordPress blog posts. You don’t need to be a web developer or designer to do this. Little HTML knowledge would be good enough to get it done. So, let’s get started.

Step 4: Find the following line

<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>

Step 5: Add the following line, right above the  Previous code.

<?php $count = 1; ?>

Step 6: Now find the following line

<div class="entry">

<?php if ($count == 1) : ?>
Your Ad Code
<?php endif; $count++; ?>

Step 8: Finally, click on update file & then check your post as if you are a reader of the post.

That is it, your are done. Please note that in order to change which post your ad is placed under, simply change the count number. Example: $count == 2 will place the ad under second post. This method of placing Ad works with most of the popular online ad services like AdSense, adBrite, Chitika etc. If you are using any other provider’s ad, it should work as well.
