Today I was working on adding a Google AdSense Ad into a post on the site, and I couldn’t (easily) find a WordPress Plugin that would let me do that easily; so, as always, I wrote one.

[adsense metakey=”my-cool-adsense-ad”]

To use add the shortcode to your post. (Not here, because it would actually try and insert something, please see video on these steps.)

Put your adsense code (that you copy from Google Adsense) in a Custom Field and call it whatever you want (called adsense-ad-1 here). The shortcode will pull in the AdSense code from that Custom Field in the location you put the shortcode in your post.
