Google Ad Wrap – Section Targeting


Download: Google Ad Wrap
Other: | 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
  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.


  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!
