Most bloggers start a WordPress blog to earn money online. Google Adsense is one of the best ways to help WordPress owners make some money. If you have a decent amount of web traffic, you can easily earn hundreds of dollars (if not thousands).

Google recently launched Auto Ads which allows Google to automatically display the ads throughout the WordPress page. Instead of manually placing the code on your WordPress site, Google does it for you and it is time-saving for most. For beginners, it is easy to use too.
