Adsense options for Wordpress

Hoping someone can advise me here as I know little about Wordpress.

My sister runs a well established state news site that someone setup in wordpress a few years ago. Shes sells and creates ads for each page. When she cant sell a particular area one month shes just wants adsense to show rather than have to design something to fill the space.

I had a look in the admin login but cant find any templates to insert the adsense code, or options to insert areas. Does she need to paste in adsense code each time when posting news?

What are the options / least risky way to add adsense as I dont want to start installing components and risk breaking the site

Thanks

This came up recently and someone had a plugin recommendation that looked really good, but I can't find that thread.

I think it might be the one coming up #1 in this search
[google.com...]

There are a bunch of plugins for ad management and there are some themes that include ad integration (Flexibility 2 is what I use; Flexibility 3 now, but you probably don't want to redesign the site).

There was this thread, but b/c yours truly can't remember the plugin names, it's mostly generalities

Here we go - this is the one I was thinking of

[wordpress.org...]

It lets you run ads from tons of networks and supports OpenAds I think.

Let me ask the dumb question just to make this official.

AdSense with WordPress means wordpress.org (on your own site) not wordpress.com (hosted by them not you), right?

Thanks.

If you investing your time to build an online business, you should always invest on a domain name and web hosting. It is so cheap.

If you build you site on wordpress.com, if they think you violate their T&C like over promoting affiliate products for that matter, they can close your account and you will be left with nothing.

All your contents and efforts gone!
