This is being deprecated... If you are an existing publisher, your ads will be unaffected but from 5 April you will no longer be able to modify your ad layouts and 3 May you will no longer be able to visit the frontend of the plugin.
We frequently review our products and features to ensure they're providing maximum value to our users. After reviewing the AdSense Plugin for WordPress, we've decided that going forward we can better support WordPress publishers through new innovative features like our automatic ad formats and other upcoming initiatives. As a result, we will be deprecating the AdSense Plugin for WordPress in May, 2017.
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.
3.Create and place ad units by inserting the ad code in WordPress widgets:
...We recommend that you switch to using QuickStart or ad units, so you can make changes to your ads going forward.
What is QuickStart?
If you're an affected publisher, you will have received an email from us that suggests using QuickStart. QuickStart is a new page-level ad format that we're rolling out. For more information, see how to use QuickStart.
QuickStart uses the same code that you put on your site when you connected your site to AdSense to show ads. We call this type of code "page-level ad code". One big advantage of page-level ad code is that once you put it on your page, you only need to flick a switch in AdSense and ads will start to appear automatically.
After you've placed the code in the <head> tag on every page you want to show ads, follow these steps to switch on QuickStart:
1.Sign in to your AdSense account.
2.Click Get started on your AdSense homepage.
The "Page-level ads" page opens.
3.In the "Page-level ads" section, either switch on: •Turn on all formats (recommended)
or switch on:
•QuickStart ads and optionally Anchor/overlay ads and/or Vignette ads.
