Google Ad Wrap – Section Targeting

download

Download: Google Ad Wrap
Other: WordPress.org | SVN

Section Targeting is a way of embedding special tags inside HTML to give Google’s omnipresent spider a better idea of what’s important on your page. This is a really simple plugin that wraps posts and comments inside these tags, in the hope that they’ll lead to better search rankings.

It does not allow you to specify a weighting.

Just so you know, section targeting tags look like this:

<!-- google_ad_section_start -->

<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

Installation is a breeze:

  1. Download google-ad-wrap.zip
  2. Unzip
  3. Upload to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  4. Enable the plugin from your Plugins menu

You can find full details of installing a plugin on the plugin installation page.

This plugin does not guarantee to have any effect whatsoever. Consider it experimental.

  1. Yes, weighting can only be applied through the template. I’m not sure how much of a difference it will make though – you’ve already told Google what are the important parts of a page, it seems redundant to then tell it which parts to ignore.

  2. Was wondering if this plugin works to target, for example, the first three blog posts? I’m looking for something that where the ads would target each of the first three posts individually.

    thanks

  3. Hi Kate, what’s the problem? The plugin is very simple and requires no additional configuration or special handling – it should be a simple install, activate, and you’re set. Looking at your site it seems to be functioning correctly.

  4. The plugin does not add adverts, it adds section targeting tags (shown at the top of this page) so that Google knows what the content of a page is, as opposed to the rest of the page (navigation etc). When I look at a page on your site I can see these special tags are there. If you want to insert Google adverts you can use something like Sniplets.

  5. Gee you just might want to include this this rather vital fucking information:

    <!– google_ad_section_start –>

    <!– google_ad_section_end –>

    in the ACTUAL download folder with the F**ING PHP file! Ever heard of using a text file and writing “read first” on it? Yes, you can actually include instructions with your plug ins in 2008!

  6. This plugin is so simple and so powerful. I’ve just done some tests and the ads I get are way more relevant now! I hope that leads to higher per click prices too. We’ll see. I just wanted to make sure to thank you for the mind-boggling’ly simple and yet ever so useful plugin!

    You need something from my site? It’s yours, just ask.

  8. So where are these tags getting placed in my sites code?

    I would have thought it would place them in my Single Post (single.php) file, but when I do a search for these Google tags their not there after downloading and activating this plug-in.

  9. Hi,

    I love this plugin! However, even after updating to the version 1.1, Google Ad Wrap still shows “There is a new version of Google Ad Wrap available.”

    I am using WP 3.1, perhaps you should look at it. :)

  10. Thanks John, it appears that your magical plugin has aided my quest to improve the remote chances of my site earning money.

  11. John, great plug-in! I have a question that I haven’t seen answered yet: how many times can you use the tags in one post. For example, if I wrap two different sentences in one article, will the plug-in help target the ads based on both wrappings? Or do I need to select the single most important section to wrap?

  12. Can you clarify what this plugin does? So if I install it, it will effectively go back and automatically put section targeting tags around the posts and comments of all the posts I have on my blog thus far ? (as well as those I am yet to write?)

    Thanks,
