When you install the plugin you will end up with a google_ad_sense.yml file in your config directory. You can change all the parameters here.
Available options are,
ad_client The special identifier given to you by google, you can find this under "My Account" in your Google AdSense login. (required) format How the ad will be displayed. The different formats are listed in `formats` (required) type Whether the ad shown is a "Ad Unit" or a "Link Unit". Specificied with `ad` or `link` respectively. (required) image Whether to use images for this ad. (optional) text Whether to use text for this ad. (optional) colors The different colors you can use to customer the ad. (optional) width The width of the ad. (optional) height The height of the ad. (optional) ads_per_unit The number of ads per unit, only used by a "Link Unit" ad. formats The formats that I've coded in, you can add more if you want.
The different formats available include:
leader_board, banner, half_banner, skyscraper, wide_skyscraper, vertical_banner, large_rectangle, medium_rectangle, square, small_square, small_rectangle, button
And colors you can customise include:
border, bg, link, text, url
Note: these colors need to be given as a hex value.
Once setup, you can add the Google AdSense ad to your views by using the helper method google_ad. That is, something like this:
<%= google_ad %>
This will add in the default format, ie. the one that is set in the
format setting in the YAML file.
<%= google_ad(:banner) %>
This will use the
banner format settings from your
formats array in the YAML file.
