Adsense Injection – WordPress Plugin

Dax from Biggnuts (hehe) has developed a WordPress plugin called AdSense injection that randomly injects AdSense ads into different positions on your blog on each different page view in an attempt to combat ad blindness.

You can see it in action on Dax’s blog. Simply refresh the above page numerous times and you’ll see the AdSense add moving about.

It takes a random paragraph in a post to insert the ad into (one per post). You get to choose what ad formats can be included and get to specify the colors you use.

I like the concept behind this but don’t think it will suit all blogs in it’s current version as the randomness of ad position makes it difficult when you’re using pictures on your blog. But for blogs that don’t use pictures and that have plenty of space in their posts for different ad sizes to show up it could be a useful plugin.

I’m also interested to see where Dax takes the plugin next. I think with some development it could really be useful. Let me know if you find it useful.

  1. I installed this Plugin in my blog. Superb plugin !!

    Reduces ad blindness.

    Just hours after installing. I have already seen a increase in CTR

  2. Thanks Darren and Jensense. This is a great tool.


  3. Yet another reason to move to WordPress. I am still using Movable Type and hoping that there will be some exciting plug ins with the new version 3.3 but I am starting to seriously considering moving my 10 blogs over to WP if I could find an easy way to move everything…

  4. Nice idea, but I see the problem with pictures….I also hate this guys blog design…the scrawled writing in awful! :-)

  5. I’m with Duncan on this, see I use the blogdesk software to write my posts and use lots of pictures. I think in my case it might not be the best thing for my blog posts. My pictures might end up all over the place because of the ads.

  6. How do you not like a site named BiggNuts.com?

    The design sucks, but it works for what’s being delivered. The rotating pictures at the top-right are hilarious…a story is told with each one….a frightening story, but a story none the less.

  7. […] I noticed both Jensense and ProBlogger have a post on the new Adsense Injection plugin today (doesn’t anyone respect US holidays anymore?). The plugin, by Dax the big nut, inserts Adsense ads in different spots on your blog. Not only does it insert ads in random spots, the plugin also changes the size of the ads. […]

  8. Awww, the scrawled writing is the best! Come on, backwards e’s…that’s hardcore!

    CypherHackz, Jensense said the same thing. I’ll put that in next (YPN, misc affiliate code, etc).

    JAMINUSA, yea it does kind of mess up pictures. I don’t know what kind of effect it would have if you put all your pictures on one side and force the ads to the other. That might help and you can do it in the plugin settings.

    Thanks for the feedback and glad to hear it Thilak!

  9. Dax – keep up the good work. Lots of potential in that plugin.

    Dax, On a serious note, I wouldn’t change your design much at all. If you do, you’ll just look like the rest of us. That’s not good for what you’re building.

    Remain memorable. You won’t please everyone, but that’s not the point. Please the ones you’re attracting. They’ll love you and keep coming back for more.

  11. […] Via ProBlogger, via JenSense, via mouse, via adsl me entero (al fin) de este plugin de concepto fantástico. La idea del plugin es permitir alternar código de anuncios AdSense en diferentes posiciones del blog para combatir la ceguera AdSense. El plugin está corriendo en el sitio del autor, si refrescan el sitio verán como el código de anuncios aparece en diferentes posiciones aleatorias, agregando un efecto de novedad a cada publicidad. […]

  12. seems as if this plugin is pretty polular among wordpress bloggers. havent tried yet but might do so.
