By the time you are through with this, you will be able to share Adsense revenue with your Guest Authors. This will surely attract more Authors to your Blog and consequently, your Blog traffic and popularity.
When I first saw this type of opening in one article by Google, I was so happy. I yelled deep inside me “Yes! This is what I’ve been looking for”. I was so wrong because that ended up not to be my solution but played a great part in finding a solution.
Google provides a mean by which you can share Google Adsense revenue with your website visitors or contributors, no matter the type of website you have Blog or Forum. With this Google Developer API, it is possible to do this but I was shocked when I saw that my Blog was not qualified. Why?
Here is Google’s original statement:
On September 13, 2007 Google changed its policy on who is be able to launch a live implementation of the AdSense Host API. To be eligible for the AdSense Host API a website must have user content pages that are receiving at least one hundred thousand (100,000) page views per day. All developers will need to fill out the Developer Information Form, even if you have already done so. Filling out this form will provide you with new credentials to use in the sandbox.
Where will I get this kind of traffic from. Am I Wikipedia. Later I discovered a way to do this without involving Google’s API. It’s a long tutorial so, I just summed it up. Just follow the few simple steps I will show you and you can start compensating your Blog Authors.
HERE IS HOW TO SET UP YOUR WORDPRESS BLOG TO START SHARING ADSENSE REVENUE WITH YOUR CONTRIBUTORS / AUTHORS:
If your aim is just to get on with adding this feature (Adsense sharing) to your blog and don’t care about knowing how the code works, here’s what you would do:
Open your functions.php file in the current theme you have activated.
Remember to back it up first. It’s always advisable to do that.
Are you through with that?
Now add this block of code to your functions.php just before the closing ?> tag:
WHAT THESE CODES WILL DO:
1. The first code will add an extra field which creates the option for users to save their own Publisher ID
2. The second code will make the ads of your Authors show on blog posts.
Your arts will be rotated with the ads of your authors. It changes whenever your pages are refreshed.
This way, you can compensate your Authors by sharing Adsense revenue with them and also get more Authors to post quality articles on your blog.
If you are looking for a detailed explanation of how the code works, you would have to wait till when I’m ready to post it.
I HOPE THIS HELPS!
