ADSENSE DESTROYS ITS WORDPRESS PLUGIN

As I type this, my eyes are swollen with tears. The reason behind this is because Google will be “deprecating”, which is a fancy word for TRASHING, its official WordPress plugin for Adsense by May 2017. I have come to enjoy this plugin in this and other sites because of the versatility and ease with which you can manage ad placement in every type of page found in your website.

adsense kills wordpress plugin

Adsense has literally and definitively pulled the plug on its WordPress plugin.

We do not know for certain, but many speculate Adsense scrapped this WP plugin because the new alternatives lead to faster page loading times, so not all is bad. This makes sense knowing Google, who has been promoting site speed with measures such as the AMP(Accelerated Mobile Pages) initiative. The letter below is what I received via email from the Google Adsense team informing me of this grave and somber news.

Dear Publisher,
In the coming months we’ll be deprecating the official AdSense Plugin for WordPress. You’re receiving this email as you’re currently using the plugin for your WordPress site.
What is happening?
The official AdSense Plugin for WordPress will be deprecated in May 2017. You will no longer be able to edit your ad settings and ad units directly through the AdSense Plugin. Your existing ad units will keep showing ads but you won’t be able to make any changes.
Recommended action
For a better user experience on your site and to be able to make changes to your ad units, we recommend you follow these steps:
1. Back up your WordPress site.
2. Deactivate the official AdSense Plugin for WordPress (and remove existing AdSense ads).
3. Choose one of the options below to continue showing AdSense ads:
Option 1: Show ads with QuickStart
Let AdSense place ads on your site automatically by connecting your site with a simple code snippet, “page-level ad code”. Once you put this code on your page, you only need to flick a switch in AdSense and ads will start to appear automatically.
You’ll need to use another WordPress plugin to edit the <head> section of your WordPress site template.
Use QuickStart
Option 2: Show custom AdSense ads
Create and place your own ad units by inserting ad units through the WordPress widgets.
To do this, you’ll need to create text widgets in WordPress and copy and paste your ad unit codes into these widgets.
Create custom ad units
4. Make sure your site stays compliant with the AdSense ad placement policies.
5. Remove the official AdSense plugin completely.
6. Optional: To keep using the Google Search Console, make sure you verify your site.
Learn more about this upcoming change in the AdSense Help Center.
Kind regards,
The Google AdSense Team

 

Right now I’m still trying to make sense of how Adsense killed its very own plugin with no remorse. It will be sorely missed, R.I.P. WordPress Adsense plugin, may we meet once again in another time in another universe.
