Putting ads on your website is a quick (but typically poor) way to monetize it.
It doesn’t cost users many money, doesn’t require additional user steps, and users can opt out by installing an ad blocker such as uBlock Origin. (Some people may not agree with my use of opt out here, but that’s my opinion on another discussion)
Google AdSense is a popular provider for Ads, and my choice.
Create a Google AdSense account
You can link your existing Google account if you have one.
Disable your ad blocker
+ button on the top right
At this point you may be requried to prove you own the website. This is usually done by adding a page provided by google to ensure you can load content to the site. How tou do this will depend on your hosting solution.

Make sure the
ins block you add to your HTML has an associated width. It’s also good practice to define a
max-height when using the
responsive ad block, to ensure the ad doesn’t cover the whole page, unless that’s what you want.
