You could do either but they'll both require you to do some editing of the theme's post template file.
Wouldn't be too hard for a PHP programmer to do for you if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself.
Might even be a plugin out there that does it - I'm sure someone has had a similar need.

There is a plugin called Google AdSense plugin, I have never used it, but it looks current and has over 280,000 downloads. This is not a recommendation, as mentioned I've never used it. I think you might try lorax's suggestion and create a test post template and see how that goes.

Thanks for the suggestions.
any idea of what particular php function I might need to use to insert it?
In the meantime, I will look into the adsense plugin as well and see what I come up with.
Thanks in advance.

One consideration about this idea - have you read the discussion about recent changes in quality standards? There is a recent and ongoing discussion here: [webmasterworld.com...] and one of the changes involves this kind of ad placement, now viewed with some disfavor in the instructions to quality raters. I had only one ad showing this way, but I didn't like it when I put it in just a few days before I read that. Whether the information is 100% accurate or not, it agreed with my 'gut feeling' and I took it out. It had been placed halfway down the page content as an experiment. (not on a WP site).

There will likely be several PHP & WordPress functions involved. To many possibilities to list them all here.

Yes, I have read that discussion, and am currently reading through the rating guide as well.
My situation might be a little bit different, but then again, maybe not: The "ad" would be for the ecommerce pages on my same site.
@ lorax: thanks for the note about the complexity. I will try and find some other way of doing this then coding myself.
