How to embed adsense ad unit in left or right corner of post content?

Have you wondered how to add Adsense ad unit in post left or right corner in post content? This was my first question when I switched to wordpress. As you can see many wordpress blogs have ad units embedded in top left or right corner of the post content see example.

This Adsense ad unit in  top left or right corner have highest CTR on my blogs like  software Testing blog. Adding this ad unit is very simple and requires a bit of code before and after your regular Adsense ad script.

If you want to add a ad unit in Top left corner of your post then just include following lines in your ad code.

<div style=”display:block;float:left;margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px;”>

Your Adsense ad script


Just change the <div>  float tag to “right”, if you want to place ad unit at right corner. The 250×250 square ad unit is most appropriate for this ad placement.

If you are using adsense delux or Adsense Manager plugin for ad management then add the same code before and after your ad tag. i.e

<div style=”display:block;float:left;margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px;”>

<–adsense unit name–>


Adsnese unit in middle of the post disturb the reading flow so its better to have ad units at the begging of the post. If you have any query adding this ad unit in your blog post let me know.

  1. You have helped solved a major problem. Thanks for sharing this technique. I have always been having challenges using Adsense Deluxe on my blog.

    I am definitely going to try this out ASAP.

    Thanks for sharing once again.


  2. You have used a character that is not considered a “name character” in an attribute value. Which characters are considered “name characters” varies between the different document types, but a good rule of thumb is that unless the value contains only lower or upper case letters in the range a-z you must put quotation marks around the value. In fact, unless you have extreme file size requirements it is a very very good idea to always put quote marks around your attribute values. It is never wrong to do so, and very often it is absolutely necessary.

  3. Thanks for this excellent article. A+++. I’ve been trying to embed Adsense boxes in my Worpress-based blog’s articles with little success so far. Let’s try this!

  4. thanks for the informative guide here. how about placing adsense on bottom left or right of the post? my purpose is for the reader first to read my article before navigating on my ads.

  5. Dude, for the love of God, it’s AD!!!! Not “add.”

    “Add” means to insert something extra. “Ad” means advertisement.

    “I am going to add a Google Adsense ad unit to my pages.” Homophones they are. Learn them you will.
