Although I decided not to use Adsense on this blog, for most of us blogging means use of Adsense, and this is why more WordPress themes now come as “Adsense-ready”. So, here are a few small add-ons that will make your contextual monetizing process easier and faster.
Adsense Deluxe – Currently the most popular and widely-spread AdSense plug-in, that allows you to automatically insert ads’ code into your posts. Very simple to use, easy to install, runs smoothly and I am using it successfully on all my other blogs.
AdSense Widget for WordPress Sidebar – This plug-in adds AdSense to your WordPress sidebar in the form of a widget. Especially recommended to those who often switch themes and use widgets to play around with sidebar’s content position.
Shylock AdSense – Easy integration of AdSense ads into your WordPress. Basically it’s a simple addition to WP that has one pretty good feature — you can set particular ads into blog posts which are more than X days old.
AdMan – Integrates ads directly inside your posts. If you ask me, this plug-in is nothing special, however it’s compatible with Adsense itself.

Adsense Inline – another plugin that makes inserting AdSense into your blog posts really easy. It makes no difference from Adsense Delux (in my opinion) however every developer deserves his glory.
Author Adsense – Often used on forums and joint communities — this plug-in splits revenue between several blog authors on the same blog, inserting different publishers’ code into same ads slots.
AdSense Sharing Revenue and Earnings System – Same as the plug-in mentioned above, only show, additionally to all, revenue in real time.
