Here you can find more information about adsense widget usage.

Adsense ID

This is your unique adsense id given by google. You can see your adsense id on top right corner of Google Adsense Panel. It is a number startin with “pub-“. For this field you need to enter “pub-” in front of your id.


Title is shown before the widget. Its display is theme dependent. It displays as widget title.

Ad Type

Adsense widget supports all the ad types provided by Google Adsense. (See : Available ad formats)

Slot Id

Slot id defines adsense visual elements of your ad unit. After you create a new adsense unit with the current Google Adsense generator, it is embedded inside the code.

Slot id stores color, size, font & corners options. If you specify a slot id for the ad you have added, it will get all those settings from the ad you created.

One great advantage of using slot id is that, if you change the colors from Manage Ads panel in  Google Adsense control panel, color scheme will be updated on all ad units using same slot id.

Channel Id

Channel id allows you track reports of your adsense units. Every channel displayed seperately on adsense reports. You can see your top channels on Reports Overview.

It is good practice to use definitive channel names like: ShailanComSidebar OR ShailanComTopBanner.

    I’m having trouble with the size/type.
    I can’t choose 300*600 in the widget, event though it’s one of the possibilities in Adsense?

    Please advise.

  2. Traitine says:

    The adsense widget moves all the way over to the right. I can’t center it in the box at all without widening the entire theme width.

    1. Adsense widget has its own Css styling rules. Which ad size are you using.

  3. Matt says:

    My adsense never shows up on my side bar in any widget, yet if i add the code to the posts it shows up with no problems? I’ve waited over a week after placing it into the widget and still nothing? Not sure why it won’t show up in the sidebar but will show up fine in the posts?

    1. Matt Say says:

      I really need to see script code generated to solve the problem. So where is the link?

  4. Morgan says:

    how to make the adsense widget to open the add in blank page?

    1. Matt Say says:

      You can’t do that, because google won’t allow such thing. You may try other ad servers maybe.

  5. gregor says:

    The ad shows on static pages but not on the Post, any anwsers ?

    1. Matt Say says:

      Try with another widget. If same thing applies, it is your themes fault. Otherwise i need to see the code.
