You all know about Google Adsense. How would you like to use Google AdSense? Google Adsense can be used in two different approaches. Below are the possibilities.
GOOGLE AUTOMATIC ADS:
Auto Ads is an improved monetization method in Google AdSense. It uses machine learning to make smart ad placement for your website. When this is enabled, Google will analyze your site and show ads only when it thinks they will perform well and provide a good user experience.
If you are planning to use Google auto ads, please do kindly turn off all types of other ads. You can simply paste google auto ad script from Dashboard > Appearance > Customizer > Universal Google Adsense & Ads Manager > Header/Footer Script Manager. Here header section is recommended.
SCRIPT ADS FROM OTHER ADVERTISEMENT NETWORKS:
As all script ads work same like Google Adsense, select Adsense option when inserting script for advertisement from other networks. Common supported networks are like ( MGID, BuySell ads, Click bank, Blue host affiliation & Siteground affiliation ). Feel free to test other advertisement networks & let us know if you experience any issue.
CUSTOM IMAGE BANNER ADS:
Ugaam supports custom banner ads. Simply check Custom banner ads option where you would like to display your banner advertisement & upload image as well as you can add permalink if you wish.
This feature is intended for developers, designers & for those peoples know uses of shortcode. You can display an advertisement using shortcode anywhere on your website. Below is the format of the shortcode.
EXAMPLE OF SINGLE ADVERTISEMENT
[ugaam_ad] <--- Your ad code goes here ---> [/ugaam_ad]
EXAMPLE OF MULTIPLE ADVERTISEMENT
[ugaam_ad] <--- Your advertisement code goes here ---> <!-- ad --> <--- The second advertisement code goes here ---> <!-- ad --> <--- The third advertisement code goes here ---> <!-- ad --> <--- The fourth advertisement code goes here ---> [/ugaam_ad]
Note: did you notice? After each advertisement code
<!-- ad --> comes & then another advertisement code goes there. If you are still confused with these examples you can check that information on UGAAM wordpress.org plugin repo.
