Ads in wordpress loop – the best practices for 2018
Each website owner comes to the idea of traffic monetization at some point. I am sure that each one of us came across websites with ads placed somewhere in the content. Usually the ads took place after the first or second paragraph. The ads placeholder plays a significant role for the final outcome, so finding the best place is not an easy task. Today we will be speaking about ads in wordpress loop and some of the best practices for 2018.
The best ads positions in wordpress
The ads position matters. The best wordpress ads strategies show that ads placed in the visible area of the screen generate more traffic. Having in mind that large portion of the traffic comes from mobile devices, we can say that the visible part of the screen covers the first and second paragraph. That being said, we suggest positioning your ads right after the first or second paragraph.
There are a few methods to achieve this. Let’s say that your website contains 10 articles and you want to place ads. In this case, you can simply edit the posts and insert ads manually. This gives you more flexibility and accuracy . If the website however, contains hundreds and hundreds of posts, then you should definitely use some ads manager. There are a number of well developed plugins out there. Ultimate ads manager seems quite effective.
Other possible positions are in the headers, on the left or right column. Of course all this depends on your theme design and more specifically the way it collapses on mobile devices. Majority of the plugins available at the official repository aim to insert ads directly in wordpress loop. This means that adding ads to the header for example is a matter of custom modification.
