For some time now, I use a small plug-in that I feel is quite nice to help me manage specifically the advertisment banners from Google AdSense on my web site. You may have already noticed one or two of those ads that appear right in the body of a posted article. Usually, it is quite difficult to do this when you publish using WordPress, but AdSense-Deluxe is flexible enough to allow this.
I hope that the ad banners so produced are not too unpleasant. On my side, I feel that they play a positive role in the financing of this little publishing activity of mine (your clicks on the ads bring me a tiny revenue; But small sums can pile up).
Anyway, feel free to tell me if you are uneasy with too much advertisment here.
