How to Monetize WordPress Websites

About 30% of all websites are made on WordPress, which makes it the largest publishing platform in the world. Starting with a WordPress website might not be easy. You create your site, fill it with great content, but what’s next? How do you monetize your project?

Setting up ad codes might seem tricky and complicated, especially if you are not tech-savvy, but in fact, making your website generate profit is simple, and it doesn’t require coding skills.

To add Popunder ads:

    • Go to the ‘Appearance’ section and select ‘Editor’
    • Find your theme’s header.php file
    • Copy your Adsterra code and put it right after thetag
    • Click the ‘Save’ button

If you do not have access to your theme files, do the following:

    • Go to the ‘Appearance’ section and select ‘Widgets’
    • Add ‘Blog Sidebar’ text widget
    • In the text field switch from ‘Visual editing’ to ‘Text’
    • Copy and paste your Adsterra code
    • Click the ‘Save’ button

Note that if you use more than one Popunder code on the same page, they may conflict with each other and lower your CPM.

Adding Web Push ads:

Copy and paste the Web Push code into your site template. Then upload the service worker file to your root directory.

Adding Display or Native banners:

If you want to add Display or Native banners — place the codes exactly where you want the banners to appear on your page (we do not know your site layout so we can not advise here).

We strongly recommend you to use one banner of each size per page for better performance.
If you need extra ad units of the same size, please contact Support.

That’s it. Now you are ready to earn with your WordPress website!
