Google will no longer support the AdSense plugin for WordPress
"We frequently review our products and features to ensure they're providing maximum value to our users. After reviewing the AdSense Plugin for WordPress, we've decided that going forward we can better support WordPress publishers through new innovative features like our automatic ad formats and other upcoming initiatives. As a result, we will be deprecating the AdSense Plugin for WordPress in May, 2017.", — noted in the company.
End of support is scheduled to perform in several stages:
- From the beginning of March 2017 new publishers will not be able to log in to AdSense with the plugin;
- From the beginning of April 2017, existing publishers will not be able to change using the plugin ad settings and ad units;
- In early may, 2017 the plugin support will be completely stopped.
More information about this change and instructions for publishers available in AdSense Help center.
