Placing Banner (AdSense) Ad Next to Site Title in WordPress Header
A very common problem is adding an ad unit to your WordPress blog which displays in-line with your site title. Here is the simple way of doing it:
- Open WordPress Editor
- Open the header.php file
- In this file – look for the following code <header id=”masthead” role=”banner”>
- Make the following change to the hgroup tag
<h1 class=”site-title”><a href=”http://mysite.com/” title=”Site Title” rel=”home”>Site Title</a></h1>
<h2 class=”site-description”>All about Jobs and Salaries</h2>
- Immediately below the hgroup tag, add the Ad (Google AdSense) Code inside a span block as shown below:
<!– Paste Ad Sense Code below–>
- Save the file
Viola – you have successfully added a banner ad to your WordPress header inline with the site title and header.
Note: For this to be visually effective, your site’s title and description should be small.
