Best WordPress plugin for AdSense ad code

Now, you already have four choices of WordPress plugins that you may want to add to your WP website. In order for you not to get confused which one to use, let me give you the two most commonly used WordPress plugins for assigning AdSense codes. These are the Quick AdSense and the free Easy AdSense. Like I said, these are all free to use. However, Quick AdSense has a donate tab in the Quick AdSense Setting.

It depends on you if you donate an amount of money to the developer. But I suggest you to donate, because Quick AdSense has been rated 4.5 out of 5 stars (as for freeware), while Easy AdSense is just 3.3 out of 5 stars. Quick AdSense is the best, but if you don't like how it goes in your WordPress website, then you may want to try the second to the best AdSense code plugin, Easy AdSense.
