A lot of people find it difficult to add the Content.ad ads content to their widget area in WordPress side bar or footer area. This is frustrating to a lot of people as this is not a simple copy and paste thing. I was one of them until a couple of days ago I found a simple way to add and display the Content.ad advert to my header, side bar and footer area using a plugin. Read on to find out more.
As one of the best alternative to Google AdSense, if you want to start displaying Content.ad links to your website, then register and get approval from content.ad, head over to your WordPress dashboard > plugins > add new and type in and search for “Content ad” install and activate the plugin that has their logo and by content.ad. See image below:
From there, you can then link your Content.ad account with your WordPress plugin with your website by going to the plugin “settings”, enter your API key, which can be found and provided in your Content.ad account information.
To add a widget to your site, create one in Content.ad or through the plugin. By going to content.ad > settings > Create your first content.ad widget. See image below:
On the “Widget name” you can name it any thing that pleases you, on “domain name” you can also select your URL or any other if you have more that 2 that you have listed, and on “Widget type” you are required to choose either thumbnail & text links, Text only, Banner Ad or pop-up depending on what you want.
You are also required to select the display style, number of ad content that you would like to display on your preferred area. There you can make your choice depending on your website space. Choose the size, select how many percentages of links you would like to appear
Note: When you choose 0%, none of content.ad will be shown exception of your own blog content, so you are advised to pick 50% upwards, so as to either mixed their content with yours or display their links all through etc.
From there, you also have another option of choosing what to display on the header, you can select your preferred one from the dropdown or write yours by selecting “customize”.
On advanced options, allow it to be “automatically find my best content” unless you if can figure how to filter the contents. On “How long” leave it on recommended(full).
Finally, preview and if you like what you see, then you can save it and exit. See image below:
To display the just created widget, go back to your dashboard > content.ad > widget, once there, click the “Placement” link under the widget and select where you want the widget to appear. Click “Update” when finished. Then, click “Activate” next to “Placement” to begin serving your widget on your site.

Alternatively, you can also go to your dashboard > widget area, browse through all the widgets, then locate the Content.ad widget, select or drag and drop it on any section of your widget and if you had created more than one widget ad, select ads that you set to display on that widget.
