If you have a website catering for musicians running on WordPress, there’s a easy way to include your affiliate link on all of your blog posts at once. You can also add them (or your banner images) to all of your pages if you wish.
You can do this using the Ad Injection WordPress plugin.
Simply install that plugin into your WordPress website (you can search ‘Ad Injection’ in the plugin marketplace via your WordPress dashboard) then activate it.
Once the plugin is activated, go to ‘settings’ in your WordPress dashboard, then to the ‘Ad Injection’ tab within it.
This section controls the settings of Ad Injection. It will allow you to paste in your HTML code for your ads, as well as let you choose where on the site you want them to appear.
So let’s look at how to decide where your ad will appear. At the top under the ‘Global settings’ section, you’ll see a grid which says ‘Tick to disable ads’. Going down the grid you’ll see where about on the page your ad will appear, e.g. at the top, in the middle, at a random place etc.
On the top of the grid you can choose what type of pages your ad will or won’t appear on (‘single’ is another word for ‘posts’ / ‘blog posts’).
You have to tick to disable the places you don’t want ads to appear, and tick to disable the type of ads you don’t want to show up. Anywhere you want them, leave unticked.
So for example, if you wanted an ad to appear only at the top of blog posts, you’ll make sure you leave the box that joins ‘top’ and ‘single’ (which is another word for ‘posts’) unticked. The below picture is an example of that:
So once you’ve chosen the type of ads you want to appear and where, next you need to add your affiliate code in the area you picked. So for example, if you picked the top advert, next you’ll need to scroll down and find the ‘Adverts’ section and find the box which says ‘Top ad (below post title – this is not a ‘header’ ad) [placement]‘. You can see a picture of this below:
In here you can paste your affiliate code, whether it’s a text link or a image banner. You can get these affiliate links by logging into the resource center after you’ve created an affiliate account with us. Here you will find your personalized affiliate links.
Once you’ve added your code into the places you like, you can click ‘save all settings’ and your settings will be saved. Have a look at your website and check that your advert appears in the place you chose and in the way you wanted. If you chose for your code to appear on every page or every post, it should do.
P.S. If you can’t see your advert where it’s supposed to be, be sure that right at the top of the Ad Injection settings page you have ‘On: Ads enabled’ checked. ‘Save all settings’ then check again.
Extra Settings For Better Ad Placement
By looking around the Ad Injection settings page, you’ll notice there are a lot of other features as well. For example, there are ‘Ad placement settings’ right underneath the tick boxes I mentioned earlier. These will better help you place your ads. So if they’re not exactly where you want them, look into these settings and change them as needed.
Another useful feature are the drop down boxes to the right of where you insert the ad code. Here you can add padding to the top or bottom of the ad if required (if the advert is too close to something else on your website), as well as make it ‘align’ in whichever direction you want (making it appear to the left or right of something else).
It’s not essential you use these settings, but it can help you better place your ads if they don’t look right where they are.
