I'm setting up my first wordpress blog. I'm naturally scratching my head over everything - what theme, what plug ins, etc. I want to write a professional blog related to accommodation websites.
So, as I start out I've downloaded a free theme, which I don't think supports sidebar plug ins for adding Adsense. So, I'll probably need to change themes (suggestions appreciated).
Then I'll want to install a plug in to manage Adsense. Looks like the 2 most popular downloads are Easy AdSense and AdSense Now! Adsense Now has a 5 star rating, but fewer downloads.
What should I be looking for? How the ads insert into the post, or ways they go into the sidebar? Should I add a Google search style feature? Should I look at other ad services other than Google and would some plug ins cover multiple services?
Hope that's not too many questions.
