WordPress dominates the network with 60 million websites but where is the pasta? • WordPress Help

With this striking headline begins an interesting article in Forbes (which incidentally also uses WordPress) in which analyzes this existential doubt regarding current business models.

In it they ask something as apparently simple as that how is it that Matt Mullenweg is not already a billionaire? which is not, although the boy is not in a hurry, in spite of that pintilla that he spends lately with the beard and nephew-style hippie.

Based on the impressive figures of WordPress, nowadays 1 of every 6 webs has WordPress behind that is, some 60 million webs are created with WordPress and 100 thousand new WordPress sites every day taking into account the latest data, it would seem that good Matt, as well as the rest of the people of Autom Attic, through all WordPress.com products, should swim in gold and honey.

The answers given by Matt and Toni Schneider say a lot about their vision and business philosophy, adapted to Open Source software ]

And it is that although only 1% of WordPress.com users pay something for the service through the additional services yet, if we join Vaultpress backup services, consulting, etc, Automattic entered in 2012 45 million dollars which I do not earn every day.

Making accounts, the income of Automattic would be more or less like this:

  • 60% come from premium services and WordPress extras
  • Customers of VIP WordPress come to generate another 20% of revenue
  • The remaining 20% ​​comes from advertising, that comes out from time to time in WordPress.com blogs and exclusive agreements with on some companies

But, despite the latest advertising deals for WordPress.com it seems that Matt is in no hurry, and prefers to remain involved in Open Source projects without worry too much about WordPress monetization (at the moment it is not for asking at the door of a church), what we all appreciate? …

In any case I recommend you read the full article (in English), because there are some details that I have not thought necessary to reproduce but you may want to know. And, of course, thanks to Martín Beas for notifying me of the article.

Change the Adsense code of Themes

 adsense-ready-wordpress-theme-bluesense "width =" 300 "height =" 213 "srcset =" https: // ayudawp. com / wp-content / uploads / 2008/12 / adsense-ready-wordpress-theme-bluesense-300x213.png 300w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/adsense-ready-wordpress -theme-bluesense.png 436w "sizes =" (max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px "/> </a></p>
<p> I'm sure that more than once you've enjoyed a theme <strong> prepared for Adsense </strong>or" <strong> Adsense Ready </strong> ", and you have found that the ads that it shows do not offer you any income in your account but that of the author.This is quite usual, but it is very easy to solve. </p>
<p> what happens is that the creator of the theme leaves the theme files ready for <strong> insert Adsense codes </strong>and as a sample puts his code of <strong> Adsense </strong>suitable for each space. </p>
<p> process to change those co Sayings for yours is simple. You must first <strong> locate the PHP files </strong> where they are included, and they can be a few. Look at your blog and "guess" where they can be inserted (<code> header.php </code><code> sidebar.php </code><code> footer.php </code>etc), or check each one of the files to locate them, you just have to search for a code that contains the word <code> googlesyndication </code>. </p>
<p> Once you locate it, to change it and use your own code, you can do it in two ways: </p>
<h2><span id= 1. Replace the complete Script

Create your own ads, of the sizes indicated in each included script, in your Google Adsense account and replace them with existing ones. To do this, look at the parameters ' width ' and ' height ' of the code already included in each theme file to create them with the same size from the ad size selector in Adsense.

 sizes-adsense "width =" 300 "height =" 257 "srcset =" http://bootstrapx.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/tamanos-adsense-300x257.png 300w, https: / /ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/tamanos-adsense.png 360w "sizes =" (max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px "/> </a></p>
<h2><span id= 2. Change the Adsense editor code

This number is unique, and you'll find it on the Adsense page once it's connected, in the upper right corner, it's recognized because it's in the mode ' pub = 5937639773245773 ' or something similar. your number and change it to yours.

 id-editor-adsense "width =" 361 "height =" 21 "srcset =" https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/id- editor-adsense.png 361w, https://ayudawp.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/1 2 / id-editor-adsense-300x17.png 300w "sizes =" (max-width: 361px) 100vw, 361px "/> </a></p>
<p> Here is a code example, where you can identify the edit number and sizes, in this case "125 × 125". </p>
<div id=

<script type = "" text / javascript "" > <! [19659004] []

google_ad_client = " pub 5937639773245773 " ;

; google_ad_slot = ; 3328948358 ";

google_ad_width = 125 ;

google_ad_height = 125 ];

// ->

// ->

<script src = "" http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js "" type = "" text / javascript "" >
