AdSense is the best ad network for bloggers, and I have already shared a guide on How to create an AdSense account. For existing users, adding AdSense code in a blog is not a task, but if I recall my earlier days, I was not sure how to use AdSense dashboard, and how to add it on my blog. When it comes to WordPress, there are many plugins like Whytodowork AdSense, Quick AdSense, which will let you quickly integrate ads at your desire position. To be honest, I find plugins are easier to do things on WordPress over manual Work. Until, unless you know PHP, and understand WordPress theme structure.

After the code is inserted Google may need some time (usually hours) to check the pages before it starts to serve ads. If you believe you have follwed the instructions above, the code is properly installed and you still don’t see ads after some time (or the ad blocks are blank) check Ads not displayed section for possible solutions. Please note that the exact placement of ads will be done by the ad code, not Ad Inserter!

Hmmm I don’t know of an exact match off the top of my head, but if you scour WordPress.org I’m sure you can find a theme with boxed blog posts and a general layout similar to what you’re looking for. Then you can just use the theme Customizer to add a gray background, or try a premium plugin like Yellow Pencil or CSSHero to make styling edits to pretty much any part of your theme.
In case you don’t see the red frame with code block number and name (as shown below) this means that the code is not inserted there (before the second paragraph) and you need to check settings. If you are unable to figure out the reason for not inserting the code block you can use debugging function Log Processing which will append the insertion log at the end of each page – switch to page source and at the end of page there should be a log as HTML comment showing settings used, the status of each code block and the reason why it is not inserted. Check Debugging for more.

Thanks for your helpful instructions about a blog. I would like to start selling my photos but don’t want to write on a blog every day. I installed WordPress and got a domain name but I don’t know if I should pay for hosting if I don’t sell photos. Do you think it would be better to go for a 14 day free trial on wix, etc. or go the free self-hosting route?
I hesitated to include this one because it is definitely not the typical WordPress blog. But when I was thinking about the best WordPress blogs around, I realized that I check Make WordPress just as often as I do any others out there. You see, make.wordpress.org is the blog where you see what’s going on with WordPress as it happens. You get Gutenberg updates (in their What’s New in Gutenberg? series), team meeting minutes so you can see what was talked about during the latest design team or community building meeting, and that sort of thing. It’s not really a how-to kind of blog, but if you have even a passing interest in the goings-on behind the curtain, Make WordPress Core is going to impress you.

In January 2017, security auditors at Sucuri identified a vulnerability in the WordPress REST API that would allow any unauthenticated user to modify any post or page within a site running WordPress 4.7 or greater. The auditors quietly notified WordPress developers, and within six days WordPress released a high priority patch to version 4.7.2 which addressed the problem.[105][106]
