Many people says that Google will not approve adsense on a wordpress site..

Is it true?

Can you tell me how much traffic does Google demand for approving adsense on a website.

Google will approve a WordPress site. traffic doesn't matter.

Does anyone have a link to a good Adsense WP plug-in that will work with WP 3.1.4? Several months ago I downloaded a couple of different ones and installed them and I never could get Adsense to display.

Since my entire site isn't in WP -- I just have a WP blog on it -- I didn't pursue it. But I am starting to build up a good archive of pages and I wouldn't mind having at least one modest Adsense ad on this blog, something like a 160 x 600 tower.

FWIW my WP installation was done through my site host, Yahoo SB, but I don't see how that would affect Adsense showing on the WP pages.

I am extremely happy with the free plugin Ad-Rotate; it works great on all my sites with AdSense. I also use it for affiliate ads, and even sometimes for my own banners and announcements. And it holds up well under heavy traffic (3000+ simultaneous users) I even sent the guy a donation I was so happy with it.

They're coming out with paid version eventually, but I don't know what more they're putting in.

Do you know what this means?...


Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Parse error: parse error, unexpected '&', expecting T_VARIABLE or '$' in /blog/wp-content/plugins/adrotate/adrotate-setup.php on line 636


...could it mean my host doesn't have the php ugraded enough?

Things like this are why I hate WP, not enough control.

er... hunh? Why would you be hosting anywhere that didn't offer PHP5? WP doesn't even run optimally on PHP4.

WP gives you tons of control. Don't know what you're referring to.

When I tried to update WP to 3.4.2, I get this message:

"You cannot update because WordPress 3.4.2 requires PHP version 5.2.4 or higher and MySQL version 5.0 or higher. You are running PHP version 4.3.11 and MySQL version 4.1.14."

My flagship site is hosted by Yahoo Small Business, I started it as a Geocities site in 1996 and then in 2001 I let them host it when they took over Geocites. It's making money so I'm not going to move it. It's a big site with thousands of files and also has a lot of other PHP scripts which would be a lot of trouble to move.

Like I said before, only the blog is in WP and not the entire site so putting Adsense in the blog would do little to help my overall Adsense revenue.

However last night I was successful in getting a 468 x 60 Adsense ad to display without even using a WP Adsense plug-in! I just put the Adsense code at the top of a sticky message and it looks fine. I can live with that.

Ok, but not being able to keep your WordPress current puts you a pretty strong security risk. I'd seriously advise you to change your hosting. But if you're happy where it is, so be it.

super70s, it's not hard to move a website, regardless of size.

you may want to consider moving hosts to move forward with your site. it may seem daunting to you, but you could pay someone < 3 figures to migrate it over.

if you want to play it super-safe, take a copy of your website and run with with a newer version of php/mysql to ensure there isn't any deprecated code.

It's OT but worth mentioning.
