    Hey guys is it possible for me to add an adsense ad above the website its sounds strange but if you look here http://www.howtogeek.com you will see what i mean at the top of the page, also does anyone no how i can add it just below the menu bar? Im not too good with PHP so its mega confusing me.

    Thanks for help in advance.

    I've actually managed that by accident several times - happens when you manually place the banner code in the wrong place

    If you're using wordpress, this may do the job: maxblogpress.com/plugins/msa/

    Yes - I've used artisteer to make websites like that (wordpress sites) it's pretty simple.

    Doesnt seem to work with adsense although i could be doing it wrong im guessing there is no way to paste it in with the PHP code?

    Thanks

    I would have thought it would work OK with adsense code - but it may be an issue with the size of the google ad block being larger than a single line of text

    May work with those adsense link text ads

    If you want to experiment, just paste above the correct <div> until you find the right spot

    You could also look at the maxblogpress plugin to see how they do it - you don't need php skills - you are only looking at inserting adsense code in the appropriate spot in pre-existing code

    This is from their site's source code

    See, the ad code is placed before the header <div> - easy peasy!


    </head>
    <body class='v3' >
    <center id="top728ad" style="height:90px">
    <!-- tmnp.howtogeek 728x90 ATF -->
    <div id='div-gpt-ad-1342044737928-2'>
    <script type='text/javascript'>
    googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1342044737928-2'); });
    </script>
    </div>
    </center>
    <div id="doc4" class="yui-t7">
    <div id="hd"></div>
    <div id="bd">
    <div id='htgHeader'>
    <div class="topBar">
    <div class="topBarLeft">
    <ul class="htgTopBarLeftLinks">
    <li><a href="/">HOW-TO</a></li>
    <li><a href="/news/">NEWS</a></li>
    <li><a href="/forum/">FORUMS</a></li>
    <li><a href="/store/" title="Get our Keyboard ***** T-Shirt" target="_top">GEEKY T-SHIRTS</a></li>
    </ul>
