Google Publisher Plugin for WordPress
What two things go great together? WordPress and Google of course - two favorites of the modern Internet professional.
Google launched its Google Publisher Plugin earlier in the month and WordPress Wednesday is as good a day as any to put the plugin through its paces!
The plugin enables affiliate publishers to use Google products including AdSense and Webmaster tools with a WordPress site. The plugin is not available for those running WordPress.com blogs, only self-hosted sites at this point.
While only a beta version, our initial tests revealed that it was exceedingly easy (no bugs) to add AdSense ads to a test site as well as verify that site with Webmaster Tools (just one click).
Google indicated they are still "fine tuning" the plugin to make sure it works on different WordPress sites and is requesting feedback, but the plugin has already been downloaded close to 9,000 times since its January 16, 2014 release.
Keep in mind that there are hundreds of plugins built exclusively for AdSense and integrating with Webmaster Tools and they deserve a closer look. If you're a current WordPress user, what plugins do you believe are must haves for any installation?
