Adding Google AdSense

To add Google AdSense to a jekyll blog I found this post from My Cyber Universe was helpful but it lack of details, that I will provide here.

As you do this process do consider reading 13 Reasons Why Blog Ads Suck for Monetizing Your Site (And What to Do Instead. And if you still want to do it, consider having a steady number of visits or google will consider you in violation of their policies and will revoke your adsense account. You can read the quality guidelines to help create better content for your blog. AdSense quality guidelines

So here are the neaty greaty details

  1. Create the account with Google AdSense
  2. During the process there will be a blur about some script that needs to be added to the head ad_sense_head_src
  3. Copy the text from the blur in step 2
  4. In your git repo, locate _includes/head/custom.html and paste the blur as prefered in that file
  5. git add
  6. git commit -m "adding the blur"
  7. git push
