You must have seen blogs or webs that are having ads inside their post or article content… These ads are usually found after the first paragraph or the second paragraph in most cases. Then as a beginner, you might wonder whether these sites insert these ads manually when they were writing the blog content, or probably there is a special code for this. In this article, I’ll show you how to insert ads into your post content after a specific paragraph.
