How to add Google AdSense to your iCornr account

  1. Create a Google AdSense Account

    Visit http://www.google.com/adsense and create a new account. If you already have an account you can use that one.

  2. Login to your Google AdSense account

    Login to your Google AdSense account and click on the "AdSense Setup" tab then click on the "Manage Ads" link. Here you will see a list of your current ads running with AdSense. The list will be empty if you have just created a new account.

  3. Create a new banner Ad

    At the top of the list click on the link "Create a new AdSense unit". You will now get a short list of choices of which type of add you want to create. Click on "AdSense for Content". The wizard for creating new ads will now show.

    1. Select "Ad unit" Text and image ads (default) and click on the continue button at the bottom.
    2. Select format 468x60 banner (ONLY this size will work)
    3. Click the continue button at the bottom (no need to change anything else here)
    4. Click continue again (no need to select channels)
    5. Select a name for your new ad unit and click on the "Submit and get code" button
    6. You will now see a text area with some html code. You don't need all of this code only the "google_ad_client" and "google_ad_slot" text.
    7. Find the lines in your html code that looks like the following two lines and write down (copy) them.:
      google_ad_client = "pub-3106940239716550";
      And the line:
      google_ad_slot = "5264155810";
      You will need these later when configuring your iCornr account. Notice that the two lines above here is examples. You need to copy the lines from your AdSense code!
    8. Hint: copy the whole html code and put it at the top of your blog's webpage and earn money from that as well!

  4. Set up your iCornr account

    Log into your iCornr account and go to your My iCornrs page and click on your blog. You should now see the forms where you configure your iCornr. Click on the tab named "AdSense". This tab shows two fields called "Google Ad Client" and "Google Ad Slot".

    Add the text from your adsense code into the correct field. From the example above you should put pub-3106940239716550 into the "Google Ad Client" field and 5264155810 into the "Google Ad Slot".

    Click the save button and eveything is done. Ads from Google AdSense should now be appearing in your posts on the iPhone app.
